I see a bunch of people talking about investing in Gold bonds. Would an ETF like GLD or IAU make sense?

When investing in stocks, how do you strategize where to put your money? For example, I like to put $2000 a month in the stock market. My problem is I buy 2 shares here, 3 shares there. And I’ve ended up owing a bit of everything. Ideally I want to build up to have 100 shares of a stock so I can start selling covered calls. But I feel like it’s going to take forever. Especially if I keep getting into new stocks.

Given the strength of the dollar vs the euro, could people purchase euros here in the US (banks/money exchange stores) and sell them later when the Euro becomes stronger? Is this possible/legal? I assume taxes would need to be paid on the gains? Never dabbled in Forex so please forgive the newbie question. This scenario just keeps running through my head when I hear the news. And I keep wondering why people arent doing this 😅
