I don't think there is a PERFECT investment plan. One advantage of an IRA is that capital gains can be postponed until retirement when you withdraw the funds. These gains compound tax free.A disadvantage of an IRA is that capital losses are not deductible in the current year like in a taxable account. Just because there are no capital gains taxes in an IRA, does not mean it is better to trade more frequently than you would in a taxable account. IMHO, Use an investment strategy that works regardless of whether it is in an IRA or taxable account.Phil.02 for SOS
