I read the the traditional IRA is the result of a rollover from the previous employer's 401k.

Examine the broker situation carefully. Is it really pressure, or is it advice trying to convince you to make new contributions to a Roth rather than the traditional IRA ?

IMO, if the traditional is the result of a previous 401k rollover, and the new 401k is decent, then roll it to the new 401k. I think this is especially true if there are high maint fees at the broker.

And any new contributions establish a Roth if possible (depending on your income.)
