I've tryed explaining several times -- even with charts and graphs -- that the reason money isn't doing anything at [full service broker]* isn't because fsb is an out and out crook, it's because the market has been crappy for the past 2.5 years. He keeps saying that he's going to call Vanguard and set up an account with them, but so far has made no move.

Vanguard Brokerage only charges $20 for a web trade and they have some of the lowest mgmt fees available on their mutual funds. I have found their service to be excellent and I have been with them since the late 80s. I have also made money on stocks in the past few years. Your husband may be headed in a better direction than you think.
