I called my stock broker that I have my IRA funds in. I asked to trigger a sell of all of my stocks. I want to sit on the sidelines through the holidays just in case there may be 'events' that 'tank' the market for 3-10 days. Here is an example of the cost of one sell: Cisco: 300 shares: $161.00 transaction fee! This is NUTS! With these charges, I would like to roll my IRA into another broker that won't bend me over when I want to restructure my funds. Any suggestions?
