I had never invested before in my life and when my daughter was born I wanted to set her up an education IRA. Well I opened it with the very first broker that answered my inquiry, Prudential. Did I make a mistake? I had no idea I was supposed to check out so many things before choosing. Since I opened the account, I have received about 20 responses from other brokers but it is too late to change without costing her money. They don't charge anything as far as I can tell to manage her money but I know this is probably too good to be true. I now want to do some investing for my own benefit and don't know if I should stay with them or find someone else or what. I should mention that I am a dirt poor single mother and even a thousand dollar minimum investment is completely out of reach for me. Fifty bucks is pushing it. Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
