Is etf or mutual fund better for roth 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 and Gold IRAs 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 as part of its strategy to generate long-term wealth. While the average fees of the two types of funds differ by less than 1%, that difference can have a huge impact on your Roth IRA balance over time.
