why the taxable account instead of the IRA? Wouldn't it make more sense to trade the IRA for tax reasons?
Because I don't have quite enough shares to do it in the IRA and I want to keep and grow the big capital gain I already have there intact. I do most of my option investing in the taxable account because I have a higher level of permission there than the IRA. If this works out as I hope, the tax hit won't be too severe, in any event, coming out break even or a smallish gain.
