> You mean you can set up a Roth and manage it yourself? Yes, indeed!

>What would the advantages be over an account managed by a pro? An account managed by a pro doesnt always have as much potential as can a self managed account. It really depends on how much risk you wish to take... Janus has some good funds as well as Vanguard... but you'll have to do some research...

> I guess just reduced fees and more of a risk for a novice trader? Yup... actually no fees for most discount brokers except what it costs to buy/sell.

> Also how many Roths can you set up per person? As far as i know, as many as you wish as long as you keep your TOTAL investments to ALL IRA's under $2,000 a year. So you can split up your $2,000 dollars however you wish... Say you decided to invest the minimum for a Vanguard Roth IRA ($1,000) and then you wanted to open another Roth IRA acct. with a discount broker and so you invest this $1,000 toward say IBM($500) and CSCO($500)...
