Except in extreme cases, many hours of Excel analysis on my part shows the retirement account will always beat the taxable account.
one of those cases which I find is interesting is that I can assume
more risk in my taxable account. One can't trade options in any
401k's I am aware of, and only limited trades in an IRA.
If you are an agressive trader you might do best in a taxable account,
since you can outperform all other asset classes.
However you must be very risk tolerant
