I've been thinking a lot about Account Allocation lately, and making decisions about the value of Taxable vs Traditional IRA investments, whether or not to do Roth conversions, etc.

I'd like to get some opinions on this...let's say you're the average saver and have just retired at age 60 with one of the four following portfolios. Which would you prefer? Assume a tax rate of 30%.

One
Taxable 700,000

Two
Taxable 500,000
TIRA 250,000

Three
Taxable 100,000
TIRA 750,000

Four
Taxable 200,000
TIRA 200,000
Roth 250,000

Thanks,

Nick
