Subject:  Fees for trades within IRA acct Date:  4/28/1998  12:45 PM

Hello all,

I just got a reply from Waterhouse that fees for
trading must come from the funds in the IRA acct
and cannot be paid from outside of the IRA acct.

I was hoping to keep _all_ my eggs in the basket
and not have the fees take away from that growth. :)

I, being the conservative that I am, cannot think
of a very good reason why this is so. Does anybody
have information on why the IRA trade fees have to
come from the acct funds? Is it big brother gov't talking to us? Is it just Waterhouse policy?

Thanks and Regards,
