Just moved my old employers 401k to a traditional IRA. Valued at 30.5k and I got it out before the market dip. Should I convert it to a Roth before the end of the year or does anyone have suggestions on etfs to put this money in. I’m 28 married filing joint and this is the last month or two before my wife starts working as well. My income this year was about 100k with 10-15k from rental property
