If yes, I would like to bounce my investment program off you. So far this year Fidelity says I am up +20%. Not satisfied with that, working on it. Do you have a brokerage account?

I really wish, however, that they offered more index fund options. Even if their fees are lower than Vanguard (for the most part) with the indexes, I think they could offer more options. Oh well, still a great company.
I do not have a brokerage account. However, I do have about 20% of my retirement saving ina roll-over IRA with Vanguard. I like being able to move money in/out of any individaul fund incrementally, to cost average if desired. I don't mind the prohibition against reinvesting in a fund you've just sold in full or part, as there is usually another one which follows a similar trend.
