On top of my regular brokerage account, I recently opened a rollover IRA and planning to do some investing and trading in it. On top of my core holdings (mutual funds & some stocks for long term)in the IRA, I am planning to use a fraction of my portfolio to trade in stocks that generate some cash. I am planning on using this retirement account for some trading for the following reasons.• I can trade as much as I want and not worry about the year end reconciliation and paying taxes.• As I think I am 25 years away from retirement, I can afford to be a little aggressive in trading.• Whatever cash I generate can grow tax deferred for long time.The reasons why I don't want to trade in my regular brokerage account:• As I want to liquidate some positions and use the cash in 3 to 5 years, I don't want to trade here. I just invest in some sound companies and sit tight. • Taxes will be significant on short term trading.Any thoughts/advices on my strategy? Also are there any special strategies to go about in retirment accounts? TIA.-DU
