M/L has an S&P 500 Index Fund by that name. I don't recall what Fidelity calls their index fund, but I'm certain they have
one. I'm also certain, though, that if you call the M/L broker, he can tell you what's available so you can do some


Well, I've asked them once to send me some info on what they have available, and got nothing. Yesteday on the phone when I mentioned putting half the money in an index fund, and the rest in stocks, he seemed to gasp, and said it was unwise, and that we should consider other funds to diversify, and then that we'd talk next week after the money was deposited. I just wanted to be prepared. We've never dealt with a broker before.

Is the Merrill Lynch S&P any good? Is the Fidelity better? If someone else is dealing with Merrill, do you have any other recommendations?
