This is a pretty interesting idea to be sure. If you made significant cash (not a really likely scenario) you could actually add some of the returns to your 'after tax' account. I'm personally feeling very bearish on retirement accounts because I think the US Gov. is on a fiscal train wreck and I'll need the flexibility to save my assets (and retirement) at some point. That's not to say I don't have assets in these accounts, but I'm currently seriously evaluating what to do with them....

I agree with you on the train wreck.

However, I am very happy with my returns from the cash taken out of the 401k (which went mostly into gold.

Until I see some sign that this government has decided to stop debasing our currency, I will remain bearish on the US$.
