When investing in index funds, what can I expect for % returns? ?

I know it depends on the funds , year, etc . But on average with middle of the road funds as far as aggressiveness goes.

    You can expect market returns 8 - 12% per year.  But it also depends on the index - small caps, mid caps, large caps, international, etc.

    I would expect an average of 6-8% annual return.

    Depends on the mutual fund.  Could be nearly zero today (short term government T-bills) to the long term stock market return, say about 8%.  Vanguard's health care fund for example has a long term return of 12+%
