I am ready to purchase an S&P index fund and I understand the concept of timing the buy to avoid "buying a dividend", however, does this apply to capital gains as well? If I buy in December just before the capital gains are recorded, will I be "Buying a capital gain" and therefore be better off waiting till the beginning of next year to buy?Any and all answers are greatly appreciated.
