Hi Joel,
Interesting sales pitch. However, I have never heard of an IRA which allows the purchase of naked call options. Perhaps there is such a thing, but I doubt it. Therefore you will have to pay taxes on your gains and that is not mentioned in the sales pitch.
Self-directed IRA & ROTH IRAs allow options to be purchased.
(Not sure what you are referring to by "purchase of NAKED call options.")

Still, it might work, but it really depends on the pricing of 2-year options.
It works, and its easy to suss it out for yourself at
