I'm currently in school but will be graduating in 18 months to a very well-paying job. Given that I'm currently in the lowest tax-bracket and have been fortunate enough to do well in the market, is it in my best interest to invest aggressively and cash out/take capital gains in the next year or so, then do the relatively conservative LTBH thing once I start work?
(in order to avoid taking a big tax hit later)
This is the assumption/strategy that I've been working with in the past couple of years. Any big flaws in what I'm doing?
Thanks in advance for your insights!
