Im a 21 year old full-time student who is currently unemployed and I was wondering if I should start investing now in a regular Individual Account or wait until I get a job which will probably be in a couple years and open a Roth IRA Account? From what I read there are tax advantages with the latter. I know its better to start investing as early as possible, so should I start investing now or later? or is it possible for me to transfer my Individual Account to a Roth IRA Account?
