hi, I want to have 2 accounts on Vanguard, but I have read that is not that effective.
So is there a way that having only 1 account, I can separate investments for example, I buy 4 stocks a,b,c,d. A and b are for one objective and c and d are for a different objective, but while I have them under the same account, I can filter them to see how are they doing.
Or if there other way let me know
You could track them all--separately or together in any combination--in an Excel (or similar application) workbook.
A and B on this tab, C and D on this other tab, all 4 on another tab. For instance. You would have total control.
However---there may be advantages to you to keep them separate at the Vanguard level, by subdividing into a taxable account, a 401K, an IRA, etc. In that case, you could also track them in Excel...this tab for taxable, that tab for IRA, that other tab for the 401K, and this last tab for all 4 combined.
We don't have enough details.
You can see each holding separately on Vanguard's site. Then as Ignatz suggests you'll need to use some other software to look at things in different combinations. I use excel and carry four tabs for different information. You could set up different portfolios on the M* site and build each to see how its doing in different combinations.
Hope that is what you were asking.
