    the traditional has the same problems, for me since I am a large saver, real estate has been a better vehicle for long term gains and deffered taxes and it fits my personality better

    I would never vote
    for hilliary but then I also know how to avoid much of taxes and worked diligently to do so for the last 40 yrs. I even have set up a family trust to put all my possessions in to avoid estate tax which in my bracket is higher than income tax. I didn't say I loved paying taxes but for me being retired to pay lots of taxes is not really in the cards as I can control my income easily.but to pay taxes you have to make lots of money and that I don'tt mind. UNDERSTAND? but let me blow
    a bubble in most peoples thoughts Roth IRA s are not tax free.
    and here is why: when you retire and withdraw they use up all your 15% tax braclet with "nontaxable "roth income and puch the rest of your income including social security into the 40% bracket. then they use this ROTH income to puch you into a higher bracket for your medicare payment which can increase as much as 3 fold even though you paid in 10X what the aveage person has paid in.

    you buy it you lose more on the downside. Seems to me the better play and margin is not required.

    lets say you are interested in buying HZNP shares then why not do it with options today you could have bought jan 2017 $8 calls and sold jan 2017 calls for about a $6 debit for each share which means you would if assigned get it for $14 instead of C$16.80 yes you are capped out at $20 but on a $6 investment that is a double If you bought the stock it would have to go to $33.50 for a double and you don't lose unless it closes below $14 whereas if

    you know so little I have been doing these types of bull call spreads for over 6 yrs and 90% are profitable with great returns and limited risk when done in the money. I am covered until 13 ;price which means for me to lose money the stock has to go down 20% in 6 months, while possible and consequently 10% loss on spreads it is not likely and why 89% are profitable. Wise up and get off your ugly horse. You are an annoyance and most ignore you
