Hello everyone,

For part of my retirement in 3-7 years, I have a Managaged Stock Account with a major broker worth about $60,000. I have had this account for about a year.

So far, the account has dropped about $4,000 and I pay out about $250 a quarter in fees.

Most of the selling and buying of new stocks took place during the first quarter when they were liquidating all I had and were replacing things. Very little buying and selling has been going on since.

My questions, am I paying too much in fees?

And, is there a better way to do carry individual stocks if you do not have the time or expertise to do things?
