"Currently, long term capital gains rates are lower than ordinary income rates, so as long as you aren't trading frequently in your taxable account, you will pay less tax on the same gain in a taxable account than you would for the same amount as a withdrawal from a traditional IRA or 401(k). Of course, the tax laws are all up to the whims of Congress, so this may change."

Thank you for all the info .
It appears that Roth is the way to go , but as you mentioned congress could change the rules of the game .
