I wasn't trying to take your comment out of context just so I could disagree with (fun though that may be). Rather, I was clarifying your statement, to point out that (I assumed) you were referring only to a subset of possible account types.
And to clarify my own - no you don't *legally* have to have your IRA at a discount brokerage, but almost any other choice would be a poor one. (Is there any good choice other than a discount brokerage?)
Understood. Just making my snarky point. And I wasn't completely clear to begin with.
As far as anywhere else besides a "discount brokerage," I've been considering moving some funds over to wellsfargo PMA.

Good to see you back, I was starting to miss your incisive commentary!
