Vanguard 500 index, because it has a relatively low front-end load of 0.19%.

Mphipps writes.
Nope that is not a front end load that is an expense. The price quoted in the paper, on the web, etc is the price you pay. The expense are not reflected in the shares you purchase or sell. Vanguard 500 index is a no load mutual fund.

Mphipps adds.
If you initial investment is only going to be 100 a month. Then you will either have to go into money market mutual funds, or Do DRIPs.
