Is it not true that, assuming you're saving /investing more than $2000/year for 'retirement', it makes the most sense to put the highest risk investments inside the Roth, with more conservative investments in a general investment account. (Given that the choices are Roth or traditional IRA, and general account, ie no 401k, etc). I don't have a tremendous amount invested, but have the riskiest portion in the Roth, and the S&P 500 index fund in a general account. Have I not thought of something? Thanks.
