Better disclosure would certainly be better.

And, as I said, I'm a former customer as well, so I'm by no means defending them. :)

There are some good aspects of it, but also some really stupid aspects of it.

On that we can most definitely agree.

It does annoy me that, with an IRA valued at less than $20,000, I'm going to have to add on an extra 1% return to make up the fees.

So the only thing I can do right now is let people know what my story was so that a) they might not go through it and (as a bonus, for the perturbed side of me) b) hopefully I can somehow make a dent in their business that exceeds the $200-worth of extra fees they bled out of me.

I must say, I'm very happy with Firstrade, so far...if I can just get Buyandhold to release my money so I can actually use Firstrade... ;)

Take care,
