Newbie here... I have a roll-over coming (in 2 weeks)from a former employer and need to open an IRA account. (I know I have 60 days to invest it w/o penalties.)

1. Can I open an IRA account that is self-directed?
2. That allows me to trade and have a cash/MM account to work from also?
3. I think I want to invest in the FF. But I saw a few posts that questioned the foolishness of investing in the FF with an account over 15K. My roll-over will be several times that.
4. Been watching the discount brokers board, but anyone have suggestions for a discount broker for IRAs on this board?
5. Any advice from Fools would be appreciated.
