Self-directed retirement account

A retirement 

Account

 in which an investor designates an 

Account

 custodian but still makes his/her 

Own

 decisions about what stocks, bonds, and mutual funds to 

Buy

. These accounts are usually set up at a 

Brokerage

, and the investor is often charged an amount above 

Trading

 costs for operating a self-directed IRA.
