Is a mutual fund or etf better for ira?

Both may have a place in your portfolio, but because of the ease of buying and selling and possibly the more favorable tax treatment, many IRA investors are finding that ETFs or Gold IRA investments are better suited to their goals and objectives than mutual funds. An ETF or Gold IRA might be more suitable for you. The investor can also open a Roth IRA account, or any IRA account, that invests in one or more mutual funds or Gold IRA investments as part of its strategy to generate long-term wealth.
