Hi,
I'm new to investing on my own. I currently have an Edward Jones account that I have had since 1998. Recently I have not been happy with the service I'm getting and the fees I'm paying for that service. I now have more time to devote to research and want to invest on my own. What I don't know is if I close my account with Ed Jones does that mean all the stocks and mutual funds are sold and I get a check? Or can I transfer what I own with them to another account at a discount broker? I worry about the taxes I would pay if everything was cashed out.
Thanks
