  1. I disagree with Jon's suggestion that one needs $500k before moving to a discount brokerage. As long as you are comfortable and have the knowledge to make your own investment decisions a discount brokerage is preferential. In fact most of the brokerages start offering pricing incentives and fee reductions with a $25k or $50k balance. Why let a full service brokerage or mutual fund promoter reduce your returns by several hundred dollars a year just because you don't have a larger porftolio?


  2. That was A very right suggestion from you. I am sure many reedars will be agreeing with you. Your explanation about Brokers key role was wonderful. I hope the reedars should understand this. susan cripllar
