No. of Recommendations: 0
Just remember that, if you trade within your IRA, there are NO capital gains taxes to worry about. Of course, losses are not deductible either, but it can be almost a "license to steal", since you pay nothing until the day you take any out.

IOW, if you're smart (or lucky) enough to rack up a million in profits, for example, and manage to keep it, you pay nothing until you start to remove some, and then you pay only on what you take out -- assuming you're past the age of 59-1/2, of course.
