why I should have an ira
===*===

One of the bestest things about an IRA is the ability to avoid the wash sale rule on a signal you've called wrong. Let's say you've pounced too early on XYZ Corp and have been stopped out. In a normal account you couldn't buy the stock back for 31 days and realize the loss but in your IRA you could buy it back tomorrow (assuming you get a buy signal) amd badda bing badda boom you're off to the races.
