Well, why don't YOU have an IRA?

Anyway, since your friend seems to have the knack to time the market well, why not just ride along on his trades? Could be he was just BS'n you, you know. That's one way to find out. Could even post them here! HEHEH.

Stock pick services like TMF and Gorilla (I current have a trial) are frustrating to me because they give lots of picks, but once you're fully invested you have to sell something in order to buy the latest pick. I tend to prefer to hold a stock unless it really tanks.
