I did not sit down and do the figgerin' but if you are going to trade as often as you are using the UG5 strategy, creating many taxable events, wouldn't it make more sense to do this in the Roth IRA? I mean, you wouldn't pay any tax on the sales, which are all short-term gains. I realize that you probably want to use the FF4 as a more conservative investment. But given that the UG5 is a more volatile strategy, it makes more sense to just dump the $2k as soon as possible into the Roth IRA and use the UG5 there.
