What is the best way to rollover a 401k from a previous employer so that I may invest in both mutual funds and individual stocks? Should/could I:rollover the full amount into a money market fund, ie. Vanguard Prime Portfolio. Then, transfer within Vanguard into other funds I choose; then, write a check from PP to open an IRA account at, say, Ameritrade; then, with those funds, I may buy and sell individual stocks.Or, do I need to allocate a percentage of the rollover to Vanguard and a percentage to Ameritrade (to equal 100%) right off the bat?I guess another way to ask is if I rollover into a money market fund that is an IRA, am I free to allocate where I please?Thanks in advance.
