Be careful here - check your AGI and be aware of the other rules that limit or eliminate your contribution amount.I believe anybody with $2000 or more of income can contribute $2000 to a traditional IRA. I think you are warning that it may not be tax deductible.Yes. I should have put the word "deductible" in there:It's very easy to be eligible to make Roth contributions but not to make deductible traditional IRA contributions.But the growth will still be tax deferred. I think it makes good sense even if you can't deduct it.Depends on your situation. If you're eligible to make Roth contributions that's better than making non-deductible contributions to a traditional IRA. If you're eligible for neither then I think your only option is the latter. Other variables come into play as well, but in the broadest sense I agree with you.Piz
