The low-balance Vanguard fees are a nuisance, but the new $17 transaction fee through Scottrade would be even more of a nuisance. Right now, my money is in one fund until I meet the minimum account fee to get rid of one of the two $10 annual fees. Vanguard makes dollar-cost averaging much simpler, and I feel more comfortable with Vanguard.----------------Another plus associated with your move to Vanguard is that you will eventually invest enough in your account so that you will not have to pay the low-balance fee. If you stayed with ScotTrade, you would have to always pay the transaction fee every time you wanted to add to your Vanguard Fund. So - at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
