I recently deleted a few mutual funds and transferred that $$ into a self-directed IRA. I am going to buy stocks with that $$. My question is: if I trade these stocks (not often) to take advantage of gains, what happens with capital gains? Will that effect me since this is an IRA?

What if I buy a stock and it gains 30 / 40 points in a few months, I then sell it, and reinvest the $$. How does the profit (otherwise capital gain) effect my IRA? Or, do I not have to be concerned about that until later, after retirement? Thanks, jfkuzas
