You can establish a program of regular purchases, redemptions or exchanges. Investments can be sent directly through payroll deposit or transferred automatically from your bank account. There is no charge to participate in this service and you can stop at any time.
While making regular investments over time can effectively average the total cost of shares purchased, automatic investing does not ensure a gain or protect against a loss. You should consider your ability to continue making regular investments over time before enrolling in the program.
