I emailed Vanguard and they said they don't have an "i401(k)" that allows buying individual stocks.
Are all Solo 401K's like a traditional?
My main objectives are to pay taxes on money as it is invested (not as it is withdrawn later), to have the availability of the highest possible contribution limit, to allow myself and my wife only to participate and to buy individual stocks of my choice. I know that I'm repeating some things I have stated but our Roth's were finally transferred out of Putnam's hands and they are at Sharebuilder doing nothing. I'm trying to make the right decision first, rather than a quick one and have to change it later. Everything I know about all of this I learned in the past 3 months. Between a Roth, Traditional, SEP, Simple and Solo, a Solo seems to have the most features that I'm looking for but I'm still not sure if it is like a Roth or a Traditional(regarding pre or post taxation).
