Women`s Investing/Oil Commodities

Question
Hi Michael,

I don't know much about investing.  I have about 100K in VFINX and think I should move 20K or more QUICKLY in an oil commodity and sell in June.  Have no clue how to go about this.  Any information will be appreciated. Thank you so much for your kind time and help.  Have a wonderful day.

Respectfully,
Susie

Answer
Hi Susie,

This would be a very unusual trade for someone who knows very little about investing. I am going to assume that you have an account at Vanguard.  I can tell you mechanically how to do this.  All you need to do is enter a sell order for this fund in your Vanguard account.  With the proceeds, you could probably buy an exchange traded fund or a mutual fund that focuses on oil/energy . You should probably read a couple of books about investing before making future investment decisions
