Good afternoon folks. Back in June of this year I rolled my fairly new IRA out of Saloman Smith Barney and into Vanguard's S7P 500 index fund, buying about 11 shares with $1,235. I had not contributed at all this year before the rollover, and since then I have been making small investments (about $50 per week) and I now realize that I have contributed over $850 more, making the total for this year's contributions to the Vanguard account more than $2000. Is that alright? The orginal $1235 came from previous years, but was contributed to the new plan this year, so I wasn't sure how that worked. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
