"can I take my IRA (stocks) away from my broker and handle the investments myself? How does this work, would it still be out of my control?"


You can put your money into a self directed IRA. You can have in a discount brokerage IRA account and manage the thing yourself. Of course as already mentioned, the IRA must be in a custodian account, but it can still be self directed without the broker and the excess fees.

I am currently doing this through USAA since I am ex-military, but you can also do it through Datek.

Good luck.
