bbfree: "I have an IRA invested in Vanguard's Index fund. This $10000 is from a company I left, and I put the money in Vanguard to grow -- not much growth in ten years...."

What Vanguard Index fund has "not much growth" over the last ten years? Was this a broad-based market index?

"Can I transfer the money to a discount broker and buy the stocks I feel will bring a better return?"

Yes you can transfer. Trustee to Trustee transfer is probably easiest and safest. Not sure on your intended level of trading, but just remember that transaction fees will need to paid from funds within the IRA.
