In addition to MichaelSB's great advice, let's look at this:

Did you deposit the $2000 for 1999 or 2000? If you put it in for 1999 and you have another $2000 (or any amount under that), you can put that amount in now for 2000. NOW you have $4000 to invest in FF, if that's where you want to be. With a discount broker, your transaction fees will be under 2%!

It may look like a little amount now, but compounding is a wonderful thing and before you know it, you'll have more growth in there than the money you deposited.
