hello polymerase,

if you plan on investing a fixed amount on a regular basis, i would suggest investing it in an index fund as opposed to an ETF. in the long run the commissions for each trade on an ETF will eat at your returns. dollar cost averaging works to your advantage when investing a fixed amount in an index fund.
