Nick,

I hear ya! I used to work for PaineWebber. I left the company after about a year because I thought it was a flawed business model. It seemed to be broker and firm against the client. Sure, there were ethical brokers out there but for the most part most of them had no idea what they were doing.

There's a guy who posts on the google boards that is a total jack***. If you question his opinions, he will send you an email trying to start something. I wonder how many of his clients know how he really is? He's an insurance salesman trying to disquise himself as a financial planner.

Anyway, I just wrote an article for my blog about questions to ask your broker BEFORE you buy a load fund. Check it out when you get the chance and let me know what you think. Here's the link:

Take care,

JLP
