Hi Folks -

I just skimmed back over the last 200+/- posts to see if I could find an answer to my question but run across it.

The question is: Should I open a separate Roth IRA brokerage account for IRA's I convert to Roth's or can I leave them in the existing self-directed account already in use for ordinary IRA's? I'm probably not going to convert everything to Roth's right now so I'll have some of both.

I'd think the accounting would be easier with two. Any other pluses/minuses? Thanks.
