Re: re. brokers

Somehow I doubt that it is a computer error. Brokers associated with banks are not generally known for low fees and expenses. When I had an account with Smith Barney the commission was typically $75 to $150. That is why most here use discount [more]

Re: charms

If you put your cursor over a charm, text comes up to tell you what it is.

I misread your comment before. You are correct that hovering over a charm will reveal text that tells what it is. Previously I think one could click on the [more]

This used to be the way it worked, but I don't think it does anymore. Many of the changes that have been made have not made it easier IMO.

Re: Selling dogs

Yes, but there is seldom universal agreement on what a real dog is. Also a better prospect is perhaps debatable.

Re: Stoplosses

I've been watching this since you posted it. IIRC you have often cautioned about stop losses in that they often trigger at unexpected times or prices. I generally agree with the caution and do not generally use stop losses.

Re: 401(k)/After Tax Account/IRA

I suggest you give strong consideration to participating in the 401k plan. The tax deferral and larger contribution allowed over an IRA is worth something.
Also if you leave the employer you will be able to do a roll over into an IRA.

Re: Scottrade Vs. Vanguard Etc.

Re: regular ira an sep

What do you mean by "manage"? These accounts must be with a financial institution but the amount of management is what you want it to be. You can certainly do all of the buying and selling within the account.

Re: SPY or Vanguard

Vanguard's expense ratio for VFIAX, their Admiral class shares for the S&P500 fund is 0.05%. You would qualify for Admiral shares with this investment. This fund and SPY track the same index so you would not be adding any diversification by the [more]
