If you want good, objective advice, do not ask a mutual fund manager or a broker.

NOW you tell me <G>

i finally just said, Move everything to my personal (Schwab) acct and close this one .. when it got moved ,i sold chunks

Then there is the question: If you rightly know that one should sell, then why doesn't the mutual fund manager at least take a defensive position by buying some puts?

i think the broker honestly believed it was just a blip, a short-term minor correction. Mom &/or i had dealt with her nearly 20yrs and she always seemed honest and conservative ..but i could be wrong
