I'm new at my self directed IRA management and though I've been fortunate in my first purchases, I'm sure to want to trade at some point. Can you trade for a gain within an IRA and still not be liable tax wise till you take it out. I mean in plain English - no matter how many times I trade nor how much I make within an IRA, I still don't pay for it till I withdraw? Please explain this issue to a beginner, I've searched the FAQ with little help.TIA
