Department of Labor messing with IRA regulations

New federal regulations on IRA's are affecting the way brokerages run IRA accounts. This means that they are going to require discretion in trading the accounts, which means that they will charge me 1.5% per year to hold these accounts. Otherwise they cannot offer investment advice. Whereas I want it on commission, because I don't make that many trades.
I have my IRA spread over brokerage houses, so they can't balance my investments on their side, and they want to uninvest things that I've chosen when they can't see my whole picture.

This means I'll pay more fees and lose control of my account -- or I'll have to choose an account where they give me no advice at all.
So much for Trump reducing regulations.
