I called them. The fee TD Ameritrade charges for this particular purchase (VFINX) is $49.95. Last year it was $17.99.

Do I consider another mutual fund from their preferred list, or do I go elsewhere? I'll decide that after the shock wears off.

YB,

For "lumpy" index investing, I'd advise buying one of Vanguard's ETF's found <A HREF="https://flagship.vanguard.com/VGApp/hnw/FundsVIPERByType">here</A> or just buy the SP500 SPDR, symbol "SPX".

The last time I checked, TD Ameritrade commissions on ETF's and the SPDR was $9.99. Please refer to this page http://www.tdameritrade.com/pricing.html.

I hope this helps.
