Subject: Should I move my Roth IRA to Vanguard? Date: 2/21/2009 8:01 PM

I just turned 24, and I have a Roth IRA with Chase. I currently have $5,000 sitting in an IRA account (still mulling over what to do with it), an additional $3,000 is invested in ONEBX (JP Morgan Growth and Income B) and $1,000 is in JLTAX (JP Morgan Latin America). I'm not sure if either fund is all that great: ONEBX because, though not necessarily a bad fund, isn't very strong, I'm just not sure my decision to invest in JLTAX was a good one (solely based on how new the fund is).

Although I decided to purchase JLTAX on my own, in retrospect I'm disappointed that my financial representative at Chase advised me to invest in ONEBX, especially when they had a better performing and more sensible option, the JP Morgan Smart Retirement Target 2045 fund (JSAAX).

Anyway, I've read better things about Vanguard's fund family, and am wondering if I should switch my IRA to that broker? But, is this a good time to do that, and what sorts of pluses and minuses are there in doing that?
