Thanks Don. You're right, I used the term brokerage account to refer to a taxable brokerage account that does not contain any kind of IRA, rollover IRA etc.

If I open a new IRA, the contributions will not be pre-tax, as I won't qualify for pre-tax dollars going into IRA.

At that point, it seems like having a regular brokerage account where I can buy and hold mutual funds for the long term (non IRA, non-retirement account) seems better to me, unless I'm missing something.
