I just opened an online brokerage account with Etrade as a "Rollover IRA" and transferred funds from my former employer's 401k. I plan to invest the funds myself in stocks. As long as you establish the account as a regular IRA (or a Roth if you want to pay for the conversion), you can self direct your retirement portfolio. (If I'm wrong about this, I hope other fools will set me straight before I go down the wrong path!). I'm planning on investing in one favorite bank stock (not very foolish) and then probably will stick to the foolish four to start out with. Good luck.
