My wife has a 401k from her previous employer that has to be rolled over or cashed out in 60 days. We are currently paying off some debts that will prevent us from adding to the approx. $600.00 in the 401k. So, I'm trying to decide if I should just roll it into one of our banks IRA CDs for the short term until more money can be added since buying a good stock will typically mean only getting a few shares, or if it is actually feasible to go ahead and find a discount broker and set up an IRA to roll it into. I'm new to the group and it has been a few years since my finance classes so I'm trying to get back up to speed without getting ahead of myself.
