The IRS prohibits very few things within your retirement account. The major restrictions include most collectibles, some types of insurance, self-dealing, and real estate for your personal use (real estate can be converted to personal use at retirement and when it has been taken as a distribution). Most of the investment restrictions you have run into are imposed not by legislation but by the IRA Custodian or plan administrator. Unfortunately this is often for their own benefit. When an IRA Custodian is also in the business of selling investments the potential for conflict is clear.
