<(OT, I am getting ready to start a new roth ira but I'm not sure when would be best to start it. (before/after election, etc.) Is METAR the place to ask about that? Thanks!>

The answer is (in a nutshell): Open your Roth IRA and fund it to the max at a low-cost brokerage with many investment choices, such as Fidelity or Vanguard. It doesn't matter whether you open it before or after the election, because you would fund it with cash. Remember to keep careful records of all IRA funding.

Once the cash is in your Roth IRA, you will decide how best to invest it and whether you want to time the investments to specific events. METAR would be a good place to discuss that. There are several other boards devoted to specific investments, such as stocks and bonds.
