If I roll over an old employer 401k to a Vanguard IRA, can I then roll that over to a brokerage account in order to have access to margin? I’m aware of the risks of margin, just a hypothetical question. TIA!

don't think so. you may be able to loan yourself the money to put into a brokerage but I believe iras are more restrictive than 401k in that aspect.

No. You cannot have margin in an IRA account and you are limited in your option trading.
You can’t “rollover” and IRA into a brokerage account.

Yes you can, you can use margin in your IRA

Nursing bras recommendations?

9 months pregnant and looking to buy bras that are both breastfeeding and pumping friendly. Need padded ones since I'm very pointy usually and wires optional.

WFH after maternity leave but will be back in the office someday soon too. Planning to get the Elvie pump for daily use and the Elvie Catch for handling leaks.

How much should you size up from your pre-pregnancy size when ordering nursing bras?

Currently live in NYC and I absolutely hate it as I love mountains and playing outdoors. I can either relocate now and have a stagnant but decent career that will allow me to enjoy my life. Yet, I also have ambition to climb up this corporate ladder in NYC and grind out here and hope to retire sooner and live wherever I want hopefully in 15 years or so and meantime travel occasionally to enjoy those things. Please share your wisdom. I need some advice. My LOS is pretty much exclusively NYC.
