401K and stock portfolio is in the red. 🫤

Yesterday, the stock market imploded like an already peeved person who was told to “calm down.” The Dow posted its biggest one-day drop since 2020, and just eight companies in the S&P 500 closed higher. The dramatic sell-off was sparked by Target’s earnings, which showed that soaring costs are putting the squeeze on margins (it didn’t help that Walmart said the same thing the day before). Target’s stock suffered its worst drop since 1987.

Hi all - I’m 23 and am not sure the best way to handle IRA/401K accounts. My parents didn’t really explain and I never learned about it in school so I’m trying to do self research but it’s fairly confusing. Would I be better off doing a Roth 401K or Roth IRA? What’s the difference? Stats: salary 65k, current savings $15k current roth 401k 8k and current investments 40k. no debt, credit card paid in full each month

Is this reasonable or am I missing something?

I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k?

My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
