I have money taken out of my check that goes to my IRA.

And who has your IRA? Fidelity or...?

What does the IRA DO With your money? Buy mutual funds? Or what? Do you know? If not, I urge you to find out. There are literally THOUSANDS of mutual funds, let alone all the individual stocks, bonds, etc.

I'm amazed at how many people tell me "I'm putting money into my IRA for my future retirement." Then, when you ask them what it's doing WITHIN the IRA, they give you a blank stare!

Somewhere out there some "advisors" are making a lot of money...

Do yourself a favor and ask some questions.

And stop thinking about buying gold chains as an investment!
