I know how you feel. I just went through the same scenario and decided to keep my IRA in an S&P index fund due to the fact that the commissions would chip away at the compounded growth. I maintain a 401K at work, keep the IRA in the index fund, and do some DRiP investing in a few Dow blue chips. Though the Foolish Four is an excellent approach to investing, I'd rather pay the .40% a year on the index fund than loose money from the account due to commissions. If you come accross any new info, please keep me posted. Good Luck.
