I'm interested in starting a new brokerage account somewhere. I would like to "test the waters" before transferring my entire IRA to them. Is there any law against having a completely separate IRA account? Of course, I plan on staying below the annual contribution limits for the sum added to both accounts.
I'm planning on keeping them the same type so I can easily combine them later. On the other hand, I'm also tempted to make one Roth and the other Traditional so I can diversify..my calculations show that neither type is superior for my situation. Do I even have the option of having both types?
