I love that you are so young and thinking about investing.  As long as you have a long term time horizon and understand that the market doesn't just go up, you could follow Warren Buffet's instructions for his estate and invest in an S&P 500 index fund.  Look at Vanguard - S&P 500 mutual fund or ETF.  Again, assuming your timeframe is 10 years+ it would be something to consider.  Also, look up the concept of dollar-cost-averaging which is what you would be doing by investing $100 per month consistently.  Start early with a discplined investment strategy and you will be way ahead of the curve later in life because of compound interest.  Good luck!
