I do not qaulify for the ROTH IRA. My question is if it is worth parking $2000 a year in a traditional IRA and loosing the flexibility to have access to this money if I need it in an emergency. I plan to buy top quality stocks and hold on to them. I know I would loose the tax advantages offered through an IRA, but don't know if it's worth loosing access if needed.
