I have one of those Goldstar Trust IRAs as well, and you can't beat the fees.ochotona wrote: ↑Thu Sep 12, 2019 6:18 amThanks, your posts were sounding a bit promotional. Good arguments, though. I use a small bank way out in the Texas countryside, box insured, it's not an evil mega bank. I just don't see the point of paying more carry charges, if you compound them over the next thirty years it's a lot of money the gold holder pays. TBD fee 0.5% would be $100 per month for me at present gold prices and portfolio size. In future could be in multi-hundreds per month. Gold Roth IRA at GoldStar Trust co is 0.175% for $100k physical gold which you own, and ultimately tax free. I have one of these also. I don't distrust Perth Mint AAAU, though it's new.
But you still have the disadvantages of IRAs.
What do you mean "ultimately tax free"?
