Thanks for all the good, professional advice.   I would like to leave you all here with a few of my thoughts.   I didn’t have time, nor did I feel inclined, to mention what sort of investments I have been looking into, or what my efforts have been over the YEARS.   For the record, Blowhorn,  Blarmston, whoever you are, I did not “just read a book” and make a split second decision about my finances.  With your unprofessional approach with me, I can just see you standing around the water cooler pumping yourself up by talking about how this stupid chick named Penny and her audacity to want to get a better hold on her personal finances without someone as suave and all-knowing as yourself.    Your advice for me to realize my lack of experience, knowledge, and time, which you know nothing of, now do you,  confirms my suspicions of greedy, commission sucking jocks as yourself. 

I have read several books, publications, journals, the newspaper as well as the huge amount of helpful information on the internet from respected sources, you know, that stuff that you all look at.   I can read too, and by the way, it’s called SPELLCHECK, look into it.   You’ll come across at least a little smarter.

I do, however, appreciate the professional advice from the majority of you about the benefits of having professional help and not dismissing me as an idiot for considering investing on my own.   I had not totally decided I was going to go at this on my own, as a matter of fact, it scares me a little.  But after experiencing this forum, I'm thinking if you can do it, (at least from observasions of a few) so can I.    I was just looking for sound advice on what options I may have and of course, my concerns on incurring fees on an asset transfer, which, of course, none of you touched.

Thanks for your time,  


By the way, moneyadvisor, your signature sign off “In the end… it’s all about the bucks..everything else is just talk.”  Holds volumes of incite. 

None of you should waste your time contacting me to get my business.

See my comment on your other thread, Penny.

Oh, and by the's spelled INSIGHT, not "INCITE".  It's called SPELLCHECK....look into it!  OH wait....that's what you just told Blarmstrom in the above post, didn't you?

Something about glass houses and throwing stones comes to my mind.......

Probably some a$$hole compliance officer on some sorta witch hunt. MY spellcheck recognizes a$$hole when it sees one.

Come on guys... some of you actually contacted this angry scorned wacko for her biz on the PM side? 

That's pretty sad.

It wouldn’t surprise me to find regulators cruising around on these forums

looking for people slipping up. I’d stay away from obvious posters like

Penny. Let’s not be so gullible. No one with serious intentions is going

to come across Registered Rep. to find an advisor. Think of it as a “broker

of the day” turn.

You're wrong, skeedaddy.   I'm a real person.   You've read my about my issue, so in trying to learn more I googled "broker fees" or something, maybe "fair broker fees" whatever, and that's how I stumbled here. 

If I was a regulator, I would have already done some bustin.

"Bustin" for what?  No one here has done anything illegal, at least publicly.

Best of luck to you, Penny.
