IRA & Investments
Many people are not aware they have a choice when it comes to how their IRA is invested. Have you ever considered managed futures for your IRA or Rollover 401k? Additionally, have you heard that the IRS increased the 2013 IRA contribution limit to $5,500 ($6,500 if you are over 55)?! This applies to both Traditional and ROTH IRAs.
The 2012 contribution limit is $5,500, which can still be made until April 15, 2013. We’re already through the second month in 2013, time flies! I’d like to propose a simple idea you can do right now to invest with IRA money.
If you’ve been with Foremost for any length of time, you know that White River Group is one of our top picks among registered Commodity Trading Advisors. Their Stock Index Program requires a minimum investment of only $10,000. In 2012, they managed a net gain over 24%! See their complete month-by-month performance record for yourself HERE. This advisor/account manager trades options on futures contracts. (See additional risk information at the bottom of this email regarding option trading.)
Assuming you haven’t made your 2012 contribution, you can deposit $5,000 to your IRA before April 15th and $5,500 for your 2013 contribution. Now with $10,500, you’re ready to invest with White River Group in a tax-advantaged growth environment! Please note that Foremost Trading LLC is not a tax advisor and we cannot and do not provide tax advice. You should discuss this as well as all of your investment with your tax advisor. Then you may want to consider diversifying a portion of your IRA funds to take advantage of these managed account returns. Also, please note that IRA custodians have fees. If those fees are allocated to this investment they will negatively affect the bottom line of performance results.
As a reminder, futures trading involves substantial risk and may not be suitable for all investors. Past performance is not indicative of future results, which may be better or worse.
Using IRA funds is a vehicle that many people forget about or were not aware of in the first place. Obviously, you may also participate in White River Group’s managed account services with regular funds and other types of money (trusts, LLC, etc.).
Note: Futures, Forex and Option trading involves substantial risk, and may not be suitable for everyone. Trading should only be done with true risk capital. Past performance either actual or hypothetical is not indicative of future performance.
Additional Risk Information for Option Trading: Trading in Options on Commodity Futures – The Advisor may trade your account in options on commodity futures contracts. Options on futures are speculative and highly leveraged. The purchaser of an option risks losing the entire purchase price of the option. The seller (writer) of an option risks losing the difference between the premium received for the option and the price of the futures contract underlying the options which the writer must purchase or deliver upon exercise of the option, which could subject the writer to an unlimited risk in the event of an increase in the price of the contract to be purchased or delivered.
Disclaimer: Trading futures, options on futures, retail off-exchange foreign currency transactions (“Forex”), investing in managed futures and other alternative investments are complex and carry a risk of substantial losses. As such, they are not suitable for all investors.
