So you don't have someone helping you anymore, you are just doing it on your own? How do you get started in that and what did you use as a research tool to pick the ones you invested in?
Basically I just got fed up with mutual funds. They seem to rarely beat the market.
I picked SPY and TLT because they are the biggest index funds for the S&P 500 and ~20 year Treasuries, respectively. More heavily traded index funds are more liquid so you can get a better price when you buy in (and when sell to rebalance).
Basically my money goes into the accounts, and every month or so I check them. If I need more TLT to get to 40% TLT, I buy TLT. If I need more SPY to get to 60% SPY, I buy SPY. If the 60/40 ratio is out of whack by 5-10% or so, I re-balance, selling one to buy the other.
