I think that was proper grammar...

Anyway, I am about to set up my wife's and my first Roth IRAs. I have pretty much decided on VFINX. What I am having trouble deciding is whether to set up the Roth through Vangaurd or through E*Trade (I already have a brokerage account with E*Trade).

The benefit to using Vanguard as I see it is the ability to invest small amounts on a regular basis into the fund. However, they charge an annual fee if the account is under $10,000. E*Trade's is free.

What I would like to know is if anyone knows if I can invest incrementally into VFINX using E*Trade's Roth without commission.

Any help would be appreciated.
