Narrator: Mutual funds that are eligible for automatic investments will appear in a table, where you can choose to enroll, unenroll or edit their existing automatic investment settings. Be aware that only mutual funds are eligible for automatic investments, and certain account types, like managed accounts, are ineligible for automatic investments. If none of your currently held positions are eligible, you'll instead see a notice stating that there are no eligible mutual funds in this account. Additionally, you'll need to make sure your account has sufficient funds available on the date of investment to cover the automatic investment amount; to do so, you can manually transfer funds, or set up reoccurring funds transfers.
To begin, select Enroll next to the security you would like to automatically invest in, then fill out the enrollment details. Enter the dollar amount, frequency and transaction date. When you're ready, select Continue.
