Hi All,

I'm in my late-20s and am hoping to open a Roth IRA in the next few weeks. I currently have a taxable account with five mutual funds, ranging from U.S. small to large caps and international stocks.

My question is for those with both taxable and retirement accounts. Do your two portfolios mirror each other? Do you experiment with different funds/bonds/stocks in each account? Is your strategy for retirement investing different than in your taxable account? If I've been happy with the returns in my taxable account, should I simply purchase all the same funds in my Roth IRA? What have others done?

I'd appreciate any insights.
