Nonqual,<<But I digress, my question is whether any studies/analyses are planned a la the Roth vs IRA work that would provide a framework for evaluating trade-offs in making decisions about the capital gains vs ordinary income issues i.e. while it seems intuitively obvious that paying lower capital gains taxes as you go may be more economical than paying taxes at the full marginal rate later (presuming no post retirement reduction in marginal rates), how do the various assumptions (i.e. investment horizon, dividend yield, price appreciation, turnover frequency, etc. say for the FF and for an index fund) affect how large an advantage one approach has over the other?>>Gathering the data to try 18-month trading models would be a horrendous undertaking. Timing and taxation of dividends, price data on specific dates, assumptions, etc., make it a project that I haven't the time to undertake. However, nothing says no one else willing to devote the time certainly can post the results here with no objection from me. <g>Regards….Pixy
