Opened a fidelity roth IRA account

For many months, once a month, it pulled out $50 from my checking out.

This accumulated to $2500, the minimum to start investing (via fidelity).

I bought into the fidelity 500 index fund.

I've made about $100 in a couple weeks doing absolutely nothing.

I'm sure the market will drop at some point. Can't be discouraged, but must invest wisely.

Would recommend.

Would I recommend investing to others? Only if they're living debt free, have a trade skill they can use to generate un-taxed productivity, have enough savings in a Credit Union, or bank, to cover several months living expenses, have a few grand in cash stashed away outside of a bank account in case they can't make withdrawals, a few grand in silver, gold, or copper stashed away in the event cash is no longer a viable exchange option and so on.

Would I recommend polar bears actively seek to educate themselves on investing? Most definitely.
