I appreciate everyones comments on this Mutual Fund. I am still considering buying it but I would like to share some more information with all of you so you might help advise me further on this fund.

Destiny is offered exclusively to the systematic investor: a person committed to making regular monthly investments for a minimum of 10 or 15 years. This steady stream of money gives the fund manager an "edge" not available to regular mutual fund money managers who face the risk of inconsistent cash flow every day. This predictable cash flow allows Destiny to take advantage of stock market declines - such as the one in October 1987 - and buy into the opportunities, or weakness, of a down ;market.

Termination can be completed and all shares liquidated on any business day that the NYSE is open. If terminated after 18 months of inception no fees will be returned. Before 18 months 85% of all fees will be returned.

Should an emergency occur only one investment every six months keeps your Plan "active."

Here is Destiny I track record

This is the actual information of the fund. This came straght out the Annual report for the fund. I would like some input on this fund and this data and what other investors like me think of this fund. I appreciate the comments.

Foolishly,
Jacob Ahrens

P.S If Destiny is not all it is cut out to be what are some funds that would be really good to start up a Roth IRA with. I would really love the input. Thanks
