Hello Fools,

I am in a delima. I have a ROTH IRA which is only about 18 months old, I took my financial advisors word on the fund in which it is in. I was blind to the fact that he was making alot of money from my investments in A Class shares with a front-end load. I have contributed about $2500 into this account and the value now is about $1700. I am considering the option of transfering the account to Vanguard to be put into the 500 Index Fund. My concern is if it is a smart idea to take my losses and transfer the $1700 monetary value to Vanguard, or let them shares remain and build it value back over the long haul, and open a new account with Vanguard. I am confused about which would be the best route for me, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks,
goob100
