Are there any limitations to the number of trades that can be made in a Roth account? Are there any limits to the returns you can earn before they are taxed?

As long as your account is with a broker, you can trade as much as you want, and spend as much on commissions for each trade as you want. Of course, you may not be left with much money. Fools try to keep annual expenses below 2%.

Are there any limits to the returns you can earn before they are taxed?

The sky is the limit. Remember, contributions to a Roth are pre-taxed, earnings are tax free. You might want to check out the Fool's IRA section to refresh your knowledge on a Roth. Here's the link: http://www.fool.com/money/allaboutiras/allaboutiras.htm

Your right about keeping expenses below 2%. I have made a few trades. The volatility of some stocks, such as INTM, have allowed me to add more value to my account in one day than I would be allowed to contribute in a year. Currently my expences are just under .4% for a gain of 122%. But if I were Taxed...That would be a different story.
Anyway, Thanks. You settled a disagreement I was pretty sure I'd win.
