If you have decided you want to invest in stocks, that is indeed a good reason to transfer your previous employer's 401K to an IRA. Presumably you will want to establish that IRA at a discount brokerage.

By the way, you may still make annual contributions to a Roth IRA if you are married with an income up to $145k. If you are not married, you can still make annual $2K contributions to a conventional IRA even though you participate in your employer's 401K. Your contributions will not be tax deductible, but the earnings will still grow tax deferred. In your tax bracket, that is probably a valuable advantage.

Best of luck to you. Fool on!!
