Hi,

I'm 29 and have done no retirement planning yet. I want to open a roth ira and put contribute the max for 2001 & 2002 so I need to open one soon. My job does no matching with the 401k so i decided not to use it. (Incidentally, should I use their 401k plan anyway even if they don't match?)

My main question is which mutual fund company should I open it with? I've looked at etrade(whom i do my trading with), ameritrade, troweprice, fidelity, vanguard, etc and I still can't decide. Basically I'm looking for a good place to start. I don't know much about mutual funds yet so I may get that complete idiots guide too =)
requirements include good website with tons of info and ease of use, if that even exists when it comes to retirement plans hehehe. I don't want to have to think too much about it ...at least not until I learn more about this.

Any suggestions?

-T
