I need to plan for the 2010 MAGI limitation removal to move my traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. I only have $7000 in the traditional IRA and not much appreciation.

My question, the trad. IRA is in one brokerage and the Roth in another. Would it be best to do a transfer to Roth at Zecco first then transfer to Roth at E*TRADE, or transfer to a traditional IRA at E*TRADE then transfer to a Roth? I'm concerned about keeping track of the cost basis when the assets are transferred.
