I am about to embark on an endeavor to follow the teachings from The Unemotional Investor and move a large portion of my life savings from mutual funds into individual stocks. I plan to invest half in a portfolio that follows the unemotional value approach and half into a portfolio that follows the unemotional growth approach. I would like to use that portion of our (my wife & I) funds that is in IRAs for the unemotional growth approach because the short trading cycles that that approach requires would not be taxed on short term gains. However, those funds are currently held in two separate IRAs which will mean that we will have to make twice as many trades to manage two identical portfolios. Is there any way to affectively combine our IRAs for trading purposes? Currently, the value of the two IRAs is practically equal.
