Shari and I have a 401k and a Life insurance do-hickey that also acts as a retirement account. We would like to open another retirement avenue, stocks. This next step will bring our retirment investment to 10% of our net income. Here's the Q, I hope you have the A:

Is it possible to hold (and trade) individual stocks within a retirement account (I would like to base the holdings on the Dow dividend approach)? If so, how does the capital gains tax structure work? Where can I gather information on who has these types of accounts? What loads are applied? What is the capital of Asyria? What is your favorite color? What is The air speed velocity of an unlaiden swallow? --Monty Python, Quest for the Holy Grail
