Unless I misunderstand, you are putting money twice a month into an IRA. You do not have to buy stocks each time you put money in. You can let the amount build until you wish to buy a particular stock. This used to be easy as the money was in a money market that paid something as opposed to now when you are paid next to nothing.To buy stocks where commissions are roughly $10 a trade on $50 makes no sense. Why would you even want to do this for less than $500 is beyond me. When I began, I waited until I had $15,000 before buying stocks. That may not be what you want to do but commissions do make a difference in your long term results.
