Retirement Accounts Funded (and Personal Finance Links)

Written by

Slipping in just before the tax deadline, I was able to squirrel away close to $19,000 in various retirement accounts. Because almost all my income was 1099 last year, a good portion of it was via a SEP-IRA. The rest of it was via Roth IRA.

Now it's time to start investing that. I've decided that I'm going to focus on PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (NYSE:DBA). I consider that ETF a way to broadly track quite a few commodities - something that most people have limited exposure to. The rest of the money will likely be split into my old standby ETFs - VTI and VEU. I'm contemplating adding some bonds (via symbol BND), but I'm still thinking that at age 34 I want to be very aggressive.

With that said, here is some good reading to keep you busy for awhile.

    Thanks for the reminder. I still need to get on a SEP IRA for 2010. This is the first year that I won’t have access to a 401k, so my retirement contribution limits just plummeted. I’ve already almost completely funded my roth so I should get on that SEP as soon as possible so I can begin making contributions early on in the year.
