I am thinking about it. I was looking at B&H, ShareBuilder, and FolioFN, and going to do a Roth IRA there. No matter how I slice it, the fees are greater than 2% of the investment. (Which seems that the Fool recommends to keep below that ratio)

FolioFN @ ~$150 per year for annual pricing, max $3000 contrib: 5%

B&H @ $15 per month = $180, or 6%
@ $5.99 per month plan (2 trades mo.) = $72, or 2.4%

ShareBuilder @ $12 per month = $144 per year, or 4.8%

Makes the e-trade 1.25% expense look pretty good. Once the port gets over the magic value of around 15,000, you could move it to one of the others.

I'm going to check into it more, and if I open the account I'll report back here and let you all know how it goes.
