I want to invest in Vanguard index fund 300, however I would like to know a few detail's regarding it first.
Is there a way to find out how many people have invested in vanguard?
I am also confused regarding how index fund's work, you see, with normal shares you can tell when the share price goes up or down but with vanguard it's a bit tricky? I mean if the minimum investment is 5000 dollars then how do I know if my index fund is going up or down? I know I am missing something.. but I just don't know what.
Does vanguard pay out dividends? I know that if you buy a share and the company does well, your share increases or pays out more dividends, however how do you tell when it comes to vanguard?
Does vanguard have a historical price chart? I just kinda want to get a feel of where my index fund will be in the next 10-20 year's.
