A lot of places will automatically dump it into a money market account for you, but that's a pretty poor way to have it grow. You'll want to invest it just like any other brokerage account. (Might I suggest index funds...)

Regardless, note that you'll need to do it each time you make a deposit. That can be a pain, but if you get on a schedule, I'd guess you can set up automatic deposits and automatic buys. Fidelity can probably help you figure out the best way to do it to meet your needs.

Do be aware that Roths are capped at $6k per year, so don't go too nuts.

That $6000 limit is only for deposits, correct?

Correct. You can invest $6k in AMC, and if it explodes by a factor of 100, you're still fine. :-)

I plan on adding $500/month for the rest of the year then continue that next year to meet the $6000 contribution limit for 2022.
Set up monthly deposits into any fund you’d like. I do $500/month into my ROTH split between 5 funds. Fidelity has some good funds to choose. Look for their zero expense ratio index funds if they are allowed in a ROTH.

FNILX large cap
FZROX total market
FZIPX small/mid cap

If not they have plenty of low cost mutual funds that a very good.

I'm actually going to be fairly conservative with this since its for retirement. Any index fund recommendations? My 401k is 100% in AGTHX, is that considered an index fund? And if so should I make my Roth investments something different for better diversity?

Those first two look good. Guess I could do $250/month in each.

So I placed a $500 market order for FNILX in my Roth this morning and it still shows open. Do index fund orders only go through at market close or something?

Yep. I believe that's true of all mutual funds, but I could be wrong.

Usually close of business day the order will place.
