dear fools,

as a beginning investor, there are a few things unclear to me, i know u could help. here they are:

1. in an i.r.a., are the contributions i make taken from my pretax or after tax income ?
2. can i set up my i.r.a. to automatically deduct a certain amount out of my paycheck just like contributions to a 401k?
3. can an i.r.a. account be in the name of 2 people say, a husband and wife?

thank you.
