I have a question about the income you can use for a contribution to a Roth IRA. I'm a student and a first time investor. I want to open a Roth IRA to begin to take advantage of it as early as possible. I don't have any income from a job, but recently I just cashed in a CD and received the $2000 I would like to contribute in interest. Is this moeny appropriate to use? Thanks a lot!
