You can contribute $6k to each individual traditional IRA. There's no income limit. Then look into backdoor Roth.

Yup, I was referring to the Roth IRA with regards to the income limit. I’ll look into this one as well, thank you!

Similar boat to you. We use the backdoor Roth IRA. Also if you are eligible, Max out the HSA (similar vehicle to an IRA but more flexible). After maxing out all tax advantages accounts, I just have a weekly draw go toward buying 3 different index funds (total money market, international, and dividend).

Forgot to include HSA. Yes, that’s maxed out as well

I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
