Yes, you can trade individual stocks in a Roth IRA, but you pay the taxes yearly.

Sorry, but the bold part above is just plain wrong. You do not pay any taxes on transactions inside your IRA - either traditional or Roth. IRA's are tax deferred (or in the case of qualified Roth withdrawls, tax exempt) ways to invest for retirement.


Does this sound like another case of confusion caused by those that insist on stating that you pay the taxes up front with a Roth IRA?
