I am opening up a Roth IRA w/a discount broker, (as soon as I find one), and have a basic question on the commissions D.B. charge.

For now I will be buying an index fund to put in the IRA, (Vanguard Index 500), and want to DCA about $100-$125/mo. I know that most discount brokers charge no sees to reinvest dividends, but do they charge commisions to contribute money that is outside the account?

TIA!
