I have been reading the Retirement area of the Fool, and the message boards, looking for information on my question. I'm still a little confuses. I have a 401k now, but I might be leaving my job. I know I can move the 401k money into a rollover IRA, but can I move it into a self-directed rollover IRA? Bascially, I want to move my 401k money to Ameritrade and buy individual stocks with the money, and I want to know if this is possible (will the IRS allow, will Ameritrade or another discount broker accomodate?)
