I'm new at my self directed IRA management and though I've been fortunate in my first purchases, I'm sure to want to trade at some point. Can you trade for a gain within an IRA and still not be liable tax wise till you take it out. I mean in plain English - no matter how many times I trade nor how much I make within an IRA, I still don't pay for it till I withdraw? Please explain this issue to a beginner, I've searched the FAQ with little help.TIA

Welcome to the world of self directed IRAs. Here's hoping you make a lot with it. In answer to your question, you only pay income taxes when you take a distribution from your IRA, be it prematurely or after 59 1/2.

Two yes make a right. Or just in case you want a second opinion.
<<<I still don't pay for it till I withdraw...>>>
In plan English, Yes.
In plain English. You are correct and you don't need any explain this issue. You got it.
