A much easier, more robust solution for your self directed IRA.

Fleck: Thanks for the info. Much appreciated.

Q: Bill, my takeaway from your conversation last week with Mr. Skin is that neither of you is locked into a certain perspective. Rather, both of you are willing to be educated by the facts.

Fleck: Yes, that's a good summation. Glad it helped.
