Growing up can be an exciting adventure. Getting to meet friends and family members on your birthday, and receiving lovely birthday messages from people that haven’t texted you in a while. Not much can beat that experience.

But birthdays also mean you’re closer to retirement, which raises difficult questions: Do I have a retirement plan? Do I have enough savings in my account for my family? Do I have an emergency fund? 

These questions can turn a lovely birthday into an apprehensive day, making many people wish they weren’t adding another year.

Imagine in a truly rare but possible scenario if you had invested $1,000 in Tesla Inc. TSLA stocks on March 18, 2011, when the shares were sold at $4.92 per share. Your account would now have over $250,000* just from that investment. That’s three times more than the average retirement account savings for an American household, which currently stands at $73,000. 

With the recent surge in prices for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH),  cryptocurrency investment has become increasingly prevalent in the market. Bitcoin evangelist Michael Saylor, who has turned his business intelligence company MicroStrategy Inc. MSTR into a Bitcoin acquisition company after realizing the massive potential, expects the price for Bitcoin to reach $6 million.

TradeStation’s IRA Account

While many want a piece of the cryptocurrency pie, it has been difficult to have both cryptocurrencies and traditional assets such as stocks and options in the same IRA. That’s changed now that TradeStation, a company owned by Monex Group Inc. MNXBY, is offering its customers the opportunity to have both traditional assets and cryptocurrency in a tax-deferred IRA account.

While other brokerage firms only allow cryptocurrencies in their IRA and others don’t allow cryptocurrencies at all, TradeStation reports it is one of the early traditional online brokers offering the first IRA that can hold both cryptocurrencies and other assets. Another unique feature about the company's IRA account is that you can buy, sell, trade, and hold crypto with zero custody fees and low transaction fees with deep liquidity for competitive pricing.

Opening an account with TradeStation is easy. After signing up, choose the different assets that will be available in your account: cryptocurrencies, equity and options, futures, and future options - then begin trading.
