I have a question that should help me decide which way to go. If I open a standard account and then decide at the end of this year to transfer my securities into an IRA account, do I have to pay capital gains on the profits? If I don't then it seems better to open a standard account and decide later whether I want to have an IRA. Any help on this matter would be appreciated.
