How Should You Invest the Balance of Your Traditional IRA Contribution at Merrill Edge?

Hi! I opened a traditional IRA account and contributed $6000. After investing in several index funds, I have $12 or so left. What stock or fund should I invest that in, assuming I can’t invest in partial stocks or funds? I feel like it is better to invest in something and that it would make more than to leave it there, earning 0.01%.

Invest it all in a target date index fund! I left Merrill Edge for Fidelity. Not sure what your situation is but I hope you’re not paying any fees. I wish you luck.

I’ll cover this in tonight’s office hours (10/21/2020) with the recording available afterwards on the course site!
