What types of stocks are best to keep inside an ira?

One of the best places to start investing your Roth IRA is with a fund based on the Poor's 500 Standard & index. As a general rule, no type of life insurance contract can be titled an IRA or qualified plan, or included in that account or plan. However, buying gold for IRA is an exception to this rule and can be a great way to diversify your retirement portfolio.
