I am ready to take the plunge into the Unemotional 5 Growth system. I am considering starting around $25K, but have a concern. I am not using a tax deferred fund to shelter my trades, so I will be subject to normal taxation on every trade. My wee little mind doing some rough calculations tells me a may be giving up a substantial amount of possible returns in taxes at such a minimum amount as $25K as a starting point. My question is.... Should a non-taxdeferred Unemotional Growth 5 have a higher initial investment point to compensate the percentage paid to taxes and for buy/sell commissions? JLBnCHERYL
