[i]If you want, you can open a Roth account with Scottrade. They have no fees on their IRA's and you can get the Vanguard funds(along with others) with out the fees. Check out the discount brokerage board for a discussion on this from the past few days.[/i]

If I set up an IRA through Scottrade, or any other discount broker, then I the fees that Vanguard charges won't apply to me? How does that work? Does the broker eat the fees? I would have imagined that purchasing shares of the fund through a broker would have left the original fees in place, in addition to the fees incurred by going through a broker (if any).
