Clint Eastwood playing “Dirty Harry” warns, “A man’s got to know his limitations.” This advice is particularly appropriate for financial planners and advisors who are giving advice beyond their expertise. Though I am biased because I have over 27 years of technical expertise in the IRA and retirement plan area, the lack of knowledge in this area can cost clients hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars.

I have seen financial planners without an adequate background in IRAs and retirement plans, acting without advice from counsel or even advice from other experts in the financial planning area, make enormously costly mistakes. That is costly to the clients, not the advisor.

IRA & Retirement Planning Mistakes That Can Accelerate Acceleration of Income Taxes and Can Cost You Up to a Million Dollars or More!

For example one advisor had both a father and son as clients. The father died leaving his IRA to his son. The advisor promptly transferred the IRA from the father’s name to the son’s name? Sounds o.k. to you? But it isn’t o.k. If you transfer an inherited IRA to a non-spouse beneficiary without a special designation like “inherited IRA of Dad for the benefit of Son” you cause immediate income tax acceleration for the IRA beneficiary. So rather than having the ability to stretch an IRA or defer taxes for forty years, the son had to pay the taxes on the entire IRA distribution the year after his father died. Using reasonable assumptions, this mistake cost the son one million dollars over his lifetime.

Another time, a 55 year old retires from his company with a million dollars in a retirement plan. The advisor recommends using an IRC Code 72(t) election for the entire million dollars. Only a fraction of that money was needed for cash flow between ages 55 and 59. The result of the faulty advice was unnecessary massive acceleration of income taxes between ages 55 and 59. The appropriate response would have been to make an IRC 72(t) election for part of the IRA, not all of it.

Neither of these advisors is a bad person. As far as I know they might be wonderful spouses and loving parents. In fact, they could even be excellent money managers or product experts who have given excellent investment advice to hundreds of their clients. Where they failed, however, is not taking the time to become educated about IRAs and retirement plans or not seeking any additional help when they were confronted with issues related to IRAs and retirement plans.

It also grieves me to say that these types of mistakes are all too common and that terrible advice regarding IRAs and retirement plans is routinely provided to millions of clients.

Avoid These Costly IRA & Retirement Planning Mistakes Do Your Research

If you are an advisor reading this, my suggestion, would be to read, study and attend some good seminars that will bring you up to speed on IRAs, Roth IRAs, and other retirement planswith good information you can really add value for your clients. Excellent sources for information include books by Seymour Goldberg, Ed Slott, Robert Keebler, Natalie Choate, Gregory Kolojeski, and of course my own book Retire Secure!.

If you are a client looking for an advisor and you have a significant IRA, I would suggest that you learn something about IRAs by reading a book by one of the authors mentioned above or conducting some other research. At a minimum, ask an advisor what expertise they have in IRAs and retirement plans. If the advisor’s answer is, “What do you want to know?” I would repeat the question, “What expertise do you have in IRAs and retirement plans?” If they provide some vague information, ask them what books they have read, seminars they have attended, or can they show you any credentials that would certify their expertise in the IRA or retirement planning area.

Lack of expertise in the IRA and retirement plan area could, in many cases, be of more consequence than an advisor’s ability to pick the appropriate investments.

Expert advice is particularly important during life’s significant transitions such as retirement and planning for your estate. Incidentally, important transitions are also a great time to have money transferred to a new money manager, one who hopefully is competent with IRA and retirement plan issues.

Forex (Foreign Exchange, Forex currency exchange) simply means the buying of one currency and selling another at the same time. In other words, the currency of one country is exchanged for those of another. The currencies of the world are on a floating exchange rate, and are always traded in pairs Euro/Dollar, Dollar/Yen, etc. In excess of 85 percent of all daily transactions involve trading of the major currencies.

Forex trading requires a constant monitoring. You can win the forex market if you can monitor the forex market all the time and should be able to analyze it. Trading forex needs a lot of research. Forex trading needs full time effort. It’s not so easy to win the forex market just by being a part time trader.

Whether it is full time trader or a part time trader, forex market needs a lot of technical analysis and fundamental analysis. Doing fundamental analysis is really very easier than doing the technical analysis.

A technical analysis is founded on three suppositions:

1. Movement of the market considers everything;

2. Movement of prices is purposeful;

3. History repeats itself.

Basically technical analysis should be viewed as the study of historical prices at the market in order to forecast or even know with greater probability in what direction the future prices will move. Technical analysis needs various technical indicators, different types of charts, graphical methods and analytical methods.

Technical analysis needs a lot of time, concentration and patience. At the end of technical analysis, you get an idea when to buy the forex and when to sell the forex in order make the profits.

As a part time trader, you cannot keep much time for technical analysis. It’s the work of full time traders. But in that case, how could a part time trader win the forex market?

Forex market is growing faster and faster than any other market in the world. Many latest tools have also evolved for the forex market. The solution for the part time traders is to get the forex trading signals or to use an automated forex trading system software.

Forex Trading Signals are selling and buying recommendations given by any third party. Such parties could be brokers, brokerage firms, analysts, traders, forex related software tools, etc. Different parties offer different signals, tips, and trends for trading in forex markets. It is best to collect daily Forex signals from reliable sources. A combination of fundamental and technical analysis forms the foundation of accurate Forex signals.

In the other way, the part traders should either subscribe for signals with any forex expert organization or they should have some automated forex trading system software tool which would do the technical analysis for them and automatically place the buy and sell orders for them.

If you subscribe for forex signals with any forex expert organization, the forex signals cost anywhere from $50 to $200 a month. It’s up to the individual trader to decide if the cost is worth it. Don’t think that signals can take the place of trader education: they are advice, and if you don’t have the knowledge to analyze the advice, you should go back to the books before using a signal service.

Coming to the automated forex trading system software that generate the trading signals and place orders automatically, they are more handy. Generally the tools that are provided by forex brokers, they will be restricted to only particular currencies, but that would not be the case with the automated forex trading system software. These automated forex trading software systems will be available in the internet market and that too for a low and affordable price. There is no need for you to pay every month for these tools; it’s just a one time purchase. These automated forex trading software systems generally doesn’t cost more than $100.

The main advantage of these automated forex trading software systems is that there is no need for you to depend on any other forex signal providing organizations or on the forex brokers who serves you. These automated forex trading software systems directly get the trading signals for themselves and place the buy and sell orders for you automatically without any human intervention.

To catch up with fast growing forex market and to make good profits and consistent stream of income in forex trading, I prefer the automated forex trading software system. These automated forex trading software systems will be of more useful to both part time and full time forex traders.
