Sarah,

Just transfer the account to a different broker. No lawyers. No calls to supervisors. For a $200 loss, it is not worth a second thought.

One a separate note: If losing $200 is upsetting you, I would not invest in the stock market! Don't go into a fist fight and expect that you won't get a bloody nose. That is part of investing.

In the future, if you go with another broker to manage your funds: If they say they will put everything into just 2 funds, walk away and find another broker.

Why not manage it yourself?

Gene
