Ok so I made the commitment & I have $167 a month taken from my savings that goes to a Vanguard S&P 500 fund so that I am at my maximum $2000 yearly Roth IRA allocation. Thanks to the Fool I finally got started saving for retirement (but only for the last year and a half & I am 53). But the question is should I be in more high yeild stocks since the porfits will be tax free when I retire?
If I did choose higher risk stocks in a Roth IRA can I buy & sell within that account? With the tax free benefit should I try to maximize with more risk?
