1) You need to find the expenses on each fund. Unless you truely believe in a fund manager paying more than a 1% expense ratio is just stupid. Compare the expense ratios of the index funds to those of vanguard or ishares.com.

2) While investing in many mutual funds seems safer remember that all your funds put together probably just return the same as one of your index funds, but charge more expenses. I personally think that your actively managed funds are unlikely to as a group do better than the less expensive index funds.

3) I do not see any bond, international, natural resources, REIT, in your investment mix.

4) I do not see any of those funds listed on finance.yahoo.com, I do not like that.

5) Why don't you roll over your IRA to another fund company with a brokerage account.
