I personally do not have a retirement account ( I have three accounts across the board ). 1. Futures, 2. Options Only (I trade SPX Weeklies/Dailies), and a long term holding account(This is a regular trading account in which I hold trades over a long term).

Both my futures and options positions are liquidated before end of the session. Any cash not trading and/or yearly withdrawals are disbursed between fixed income products. Long term trading account has about 20x the capital compared to both futures and options accounts, however, my futures and options accounts are the secondary sources of my income (I work as an IT Consultant).
