Hi, everyone.

I am a student who is looking for ways to start building a nest egg for both the long-term and short-term. I have invested in a few stocks so far, but I'm also interested in opening a Roth IRA. I see that the main requirement for a Roth is to have an earned income, but I just recently quit my job so I could focus more on school. Am I disqualified from having a Roth because I won't be working anymore this year, or do you just have to have some earned income for any part of a given tax year?

Thanks in advance for any responses!
