I have a vanguard regular account in which i buy vanguard mutual funds esp the sp500 fund. the site is grt. service is good and i love it.

i recently wanted to open a roth ira accnt. i had the same question. go with vanguard or scottrade. i went with scottrade. reasons
1) no fee for ira.
( vanguard will charge 10$ if total fund in accnt is less than some amount say 5k$ for most funds)

2) can buy stocks at 7$ mkt order at scottrade. its 25$ or so at vanguard. i wanted the option of buying stocks in my IRA accnt. that was one good reason to go with scottrade.

3) they have the fidelity funds, vanguaerd funds and 9000 more. thats great.

4) local office with anumber to call.
5) there is 800 number . its till 10pm cst. i already spoke.
