    Need advice on Bogleheads 3 fund strategy

    So I just looked this strategy up and it seems promising. Pretty much just invest in 3 funds.

    My question is I have $2k in my TD Ameritrade account which is invested in a couple mutual funds and a couple stocks. Its doing ok nothing great. Should I sell off everything and split the $2k in the 3 funds they suggest?

    I currently deposit a measly $10 a week (will be doing more in the future) into the account and buy more of the same mutual funds. Do I continue to do this but with the 3 funds the Bogle's recommend?

    Appreciate any help.
    LOL @ people who follow politics

    If you can I would, but take a look at initial deposit before selling. Some require a min. of 5k to open.

    You don't have enough money for a 3 fund IMO. I'd literally put it all in VOO (S&P 500) or VTI (Vanguard total market etf) and just keep adding to it.


    And I'd say up to at least $100 per month not 10$ per week.
