Can I treat my Vanguard Money Market Mutual Fund IRA as a bank account to purchase funds (monthly) in the other two Mutual Fund IRA's? The idea here is to purchase funds each month to take advantage of dollar-cost averaging, or value averaging.

What fees do I incur using my Money Market Mutual Fund IRA to purchase funds in the other two Vanguard Mutual Fund IRA's?

It's no problem to move funds out of one investment and into another, all within your IRA.

Sometimes Vanguard has maintenance fees for small holdings in an index fund (or any fund). These annoying charges can generally be eliminated by agreeing to receive electronic communications from Vanguard (such as statements), rather than snail mail.
