I have a question about Roth IRA contribution techniques. For those of you that have a Roth, do you put all your money into the given investment(s) in one lump sum at a certain time? Or, do you dollar-cost average over the year or only at certain times during the year? I've heard several recommendations on this and am not sure which presents the greater advantage--especially the one about dollar-cost averaging in the months of July and October. Thoughts or opinions?

Thanks.
