I'm a big fan of this site, but I would never recommend a fixed rate IRA. 6% for a retirement investment is a pretty low level of return.

For long term investments, it is probably best to take some risk and go with stock/bond mutual funds or similar investments. But for those who are already near or in retirement, CDs or high yield savings accounts may be a reasonable part of their portfolio. Several of my readers have been interested in CD IRAs. 6% is very high in terms of a banking type product.
