Shortly after transferring a large$$$portfolio of stocks, bonds, cd's, mutual funds and money market from ml to edward jones, my broker sold most of it without my informed consent. He didn't answer my question about capital gains. On april 9, i found that i owed 54, 000 in taxes with another 3, 000 in estimated taxes. I asked my broker how i was going to pay for this. He said the best thing to do was to take a loan with edward jones! He also sold mutual funds from one class and bought same funds in another class. He got me into annuities, and since i have transferred back to merrill lynch, the only income i have is from selling securities.
