I read the Money Magazine article this last issue that says it's better to hold stock index funds, stock ETFs, and dividend funds in taxable accounts and outside the IRA to take advantage of long term capital gains rates, and to hold bond funds, and actively managed stock funds that trade a lot in tax-deferred accounts...

#1) True?
#2) What would be regarded as an "actively managed stock fund"?
#3) Is it "better" to hold stocks outright in an IRA or outside of it?

We are opening an IRA to supplement a 401k. We thought we would put some ETFs in the IRA...This sounds like a bad idea if I go by this article.

Thanks Fools
