The funds are still conspicuously missing from my Roth account. After 4 phone calls and 4 assurances that the transaction is there, it just hasn't "settled" yet, I am beginning to bristle. I came this close to yelling, "Just give me my fucking money!" to the Fidelity rep on the phone. Thankfully, years of breeding kicked in just in time and I bit down on my tongue before the words could irrevocably escape into the world. Like Harry said to Sally, "You can't take it back. Once you say it, it's out there." But I figured out what I am going to do:
This is probably irrational but I just don't like index funds. I regard them with narrowed eyes. What, computers do all this you say? Yeah, right.
