I was thinking of asking that $100 per paycheck be transferred automatically to my brokerage account and then invest with that amount every 12-months. This way I'll know that I'm saving money with one account and can use the other account for my bills and general expesnes. Does anyone else do this?>>Depending on how comfortable you are with your budgeting you could choose to run everything through your brokerage account (paycheck, bills, investing). I do have friends who do this. Me, I need to keep things separate, so I just have part of my paycheck sent to the brokerage. However, I supplement that with additional cash when I can. BTW, I know the Fools are doing analysis to backtest the returns on holding the Foolish Four over 18 months (in order to take advantage of the lower capital gains rate). IMHO, 18 months is a long time to have money sitting on the sideline. One option I'm considering is running two Foolish Four portfolios on a rolling 9-month basis. Just an idea...
