...I have a Roth IRA at fidelity and invest in 4 funds currently (all fidelity funds but I have the option of other families, like Vanguard for example). The only thing I can't figure out with mine is how to buy stocks as mine is a "Mutual Fund Account" I have been meaning to call Fidelity what I need to do to be able to invest in stocks in my Roth, but haven't taken that step yet.

I had a traditional IRA (mutual fund account) with Fidelity, but about 2 years ago I called and got it changed to a stock trading account. It was an easy change. (I remember the rep on the phone saying that all the recently established IRA's are set up to trade stocks. I had one from the late 1980's though and it was only for mutual funds.)
