Capital gains (losses) should present no problems. They only occur when you decide to sell a stock. In an IRA, they are non-taxible events. For example, say you decide you want to replace X stock with Y stock, you sell X stock and buy Y stock with the procedes.

Simply let your dividends accumulate in your MMF. At rebalance time for your RP4, sell the RP4 stocks, add in the dividend amount, and then buy your new RP4 stocks.
