His broker was suggesting that he contribute any new money to a Roth, and you seem to agree.Now, I suppose it depends on what is meant by "immense pressure," but it sounds like the broker is giving him good advice. I wouldn't want a broker who wouldn't try to dissuade me from making bad decisions. Without knowing more about how "immense" the pressure is (threatening phone calls, picketing?) I wouldn't criticize the broker, especially since his advice appears to be sound.
