No. of Recommendations: 1
Hi, i would like to open/start Roth Ira. I've read several books, 'Jim Cramer, Suze Orman, and Dave Ramsey,' I'm confused on which company an or stock to go with. Suze suggest Vanguard vexmx until you reach $25,000 and than add vgtsx.
Any help would be greatly appreciated


You might take a look at Fidelity. Low $7.95 commission and they now offer a total of 25 I-Share ETFs commission free.

If I were starting today (I'm seventy years old and already comfortably retired) I would build a well diversified portfolio with the no commission I-Shares at Fidelity.

Something like this:

20%------IVV
20%------IVE
20%------IJR
20%------IJS
20%------EFA

Well diversified with no minimums and no commissions. As You grow older you could consider adding bonds.
