As the consumer price index (CPI) strikes highs unseen since 1982, investors and potential retirees are likely considering how to best protect their money. 

For many, the stock market might seem an unlikely candidate. Whispers that inflationary periods are bad for stocks are likely responsible for this conclusion, which is unfortunate because it’s only partially true. In reality, history shows that inflationary periods tend to be negatively correlated with growth stocks like Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) but positively correlated with traditional value stocks like Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NASDAQ: GS).

Among the many options that Axos Invest offers, their Self-Directed Trading platform provides access to investors of all experience levels to begin investing on their own. A few key features of the Self-Directed Trading platform include: 

  • Manage your own investments in a Traditional or Roth IRA account.
  • Open a new account with just $50.
  • Save with commission-free trades on stocks and ETFs.
  • Access a wide array of securities - you choose your level of diversification.

Axos Invest’s SDT platform is one way to buy, sell, and manage investments that can be convenient and effective by utilizing the unique benefits of an IRA to actively hedge against inflation.

For example, an investment into the SPDR S&P500 ETF (NASDAQ: SPY), which has produced an average return of 9% over the last 20 years, may provide an interesting hedging opportunity, particularly when coupled with potential IRA tax benefits. Alternatively, an investment into the Vanguard Short-Term Inflation-Protected Securities ETF (NASDAQ: VTIP), or other inflation protected securities ETFs, may also prove an interesting avenue of exploration, especially for an IRA account. 

With a strong goal to bring about financial freedom for its clients, Axos Invest offers three individual retirement account (IRA) classes, depending on the needs of each customer. 

Roth IRA: 

  • Funded with money you’ve already been taxed on
  • Withdraw your contributions at any time without taxes or penalty 
  • Potentially enjoy tax-free growth on contributions 

Traditional IRA: 

  • Usually tax deductible at the time of contribution 
  • No income requirement to qualify for an account 

Rollover IRA: 

  • Rollover your qualified plan account from a previous workplace plan like a 401(k)
