Subject:  How do I effectively use a Roth IRA Date:  12/13/1999  4:16 PM

I was does one effectively use a Roth IRA, for example what's the best vehicle to use to maximize the profits of a Roth. Can it be used in conjunction with any of the BTD methods for example. Does it make more sense to just invest the same $2000 in an index fund. I thought perhaps taking advantage of the no taxes on profits made sense...but I am a little confused whats the catch here. I mean I use post tax dollars and never have to worry about taxes this really the case...HELPPPPPp lol.

PS. I would appreciate some real insightful replies you fools.
