As long as the contribution is in an IRA (hopefully in an interest-bearing money-market account held by your broker), you can wait forever to buy the stocks as far as the IRS is concerned.And, if you're talking really long-term (10 years, say), it doesn't matter whether you buy now or in January, barring acts of God and other "event risk".If you're going to trade actively, it does matter when you buy -- but since nobody knows what's going to happen in the future, nobody is really very well placed to advise you.You jump on the horse and you see where he takes you. :-)
