I have contributed the $2,000 max to my Roth IRA for 1997 and will be doing so for 1998. The IRA is getting 5% on a money market right now. While I'd like to put the money into the Dow Four, it seems that the commissions (I pay $12 a trade) would kill me unless I have accumulated a larger amount in the account. So, my question is, would it be a good idea to just throw the money into the Dow Diamonds stock (DIA), paying commissions once a year, until I have $10,000 or so in contributions in the account?
