(I'm guessing YES, else the after-tax portion would have rolled over into a separate Roth IRA.) Yes 2. Do you ever plan to rollover this ...

Re: Help with investing

Hi new000, Welcome to Bogleheads. I am going to disagree with TomP10. I don't think you need to follow the "asking portfolio questions" format, because it doesn't seem like this $50,000 is for your retirement. It would be helpful if you can tell us what the money is for, and when it will b...
