Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Hits the Trillion Dollar Milestone | Morningstar

The growth of this fund over the past 8 years or so is pretty incredible.

Not really surprising. Its performance has been great and very few active funds or any other for that matter  can consistently beat its performance over time. What amazes me  is I went   to a higher bond allocation this year than I ever did  just before the coronavirus drama started and I've  had the best performance I've ever had. So all the index funds are proving their  worth across the board.
