I feel like an idiot. While I've been investing some money in the stock market over the past year or two, I failed to take a close look at the mutual funds I own...and just did that tonight. Here's what I found:

Of the three mutual funds that my wife and I own, here are the situations:

1. We each have a Roth IRA that is invested in MIGBX -- a "B" type fund with the contingent deferred sales charge.

2. I have a traditional IRA in NAGIX -- a "C" type fund with a level annual sales charge.

3. I have a mutual fund account in AGGBX -- another "B" type fund with a contingent deferred sales charge.

I feel BETRAYED by my investment broker guy. He's a nice guy, but of course never relayed to me the money that I was paying out for these mutual fund investments. And for the two Roth IRA's and my regular IRA, I'm paying $40 A PIECE per year as a maintenance fee...$120 a year total!!!

HELP!!!!! Can anyone please help me with this??? What should I do? I've had the NAGIX and AGGBX accounts for over six years...but our Roth IRAs MIGBX accounts are only two years old.

Where do I go from here? Do I call my broker...and what should I say? Can these be changed now? And to WHAT??
