I wouldn't call e-trade a middle man, since they don't charge any fees. But you will need to keep a $5,000 minimum balance, so it might not be the best way to start out. #29 is right that you can just buy your mutual funds directly from the co. in question. And if you really want a single web location from which to survey your mutual fund kingdom, you can always set up your portfolio tracker on the Motley Fool or the New York Times, or just about anywhere (Vanguard will let you do it too).
