Since I know nothing about you, I cannot give you specifics. Generally, one of the main things you should consider is your tax situation. If you are young and have a lower tax bracket, then you should consider looking at the Roth IRA. If you are in a higher tax bracket, then consider a Traditional IRA. There are a lot of factors that go into answering this question. I would recommend consulting your tax preparer or financial advisor.One other thing that you should consider is that if you are recently unemployed, you should conserve your capital until you have employment. Everyone should have a rainy day fund saved up. Especially if you cannot find work for a while.I hope this helpsKirk If you want more information you can visit me at:
