I have another question about opening a Roth IRA and investing in the Vanguard Total Stock Market Fund. Is it better to invest directly through Vanguard or to open up a discount brokerage account and do it there?I think either option will most likely suit you just fine. Personally, I opted to go directly with Vanguard. Since I was planning to invest in Vanguard funds, I felt it was best for me to go directly with the fund family. I am sure I would have been just as pleased had I gone with a brokerage such as Scottrade.One thought I had at the time was the chances were greater of my costs increasing with a brokerage than with Vanguard directly. While Scottrade does not currently charge a commission (at least I believe that to be true), that does not mean that will always be the case.I think you need to go with the choice that makes you feel the most secure and comfortable.dt
