Zecco IRA Account
Zecco Sucks- Should you open an IRA with Zecco? Zecco IRA Account review
Traditional IRA with Zecco:
Traditional IRA A traditional
IRA allows you to contribute your income up to $5,000 per year (2009).
You won't pay tax on your IRA earnings until you make a withdrawal. Your
contributions may be tax-deductible in the current tax year depending
on your income and other factors.
Zecco Roth IRA
With a Roth IRA, your contributions
are never deductible. However, you can enjoy tax-deferred earnings and tax-free
qualified distributions. Your contribution limit depends on your marital
status and whether your compensation falls within certain requirements
I opened an IRA account
with Zecco and had a horrible experience. They have the worst IRA account
offering in the nation.
1) It is frustrating
to deal with their customer service and their trading policies (As always,
there is no free lunch in financial markets LOL).
2) They charge $30 annually for an IRA account.
3) To close out an IRA account you need to pay at least $80. $50 for Account
Transfer- which is compulsory They just do not issue you a check for depositing
into another IRA account. Plus they will charge $30 in account closing
4) If you have
a cash brokerage account instead of margin, you can NOT sell one stock
and buy another same day! You have to wait 3 days before you can buy stock
or use the fund of your sell trade!!!
5) The day you close your account- you lose access to all your account
history, statements, trade confirmations. This is a big issue if you have
opted for paperless communication!! You have no record whatsoever or trace
once you close your account.
Tip: Before closing your account,
make sure you download or print all account records.
6) Most brokers offer free or
low cost Mutual funds options for IRA/Retirement accounts but Zecco is
most expensive. They charge$10 per trade.
