I believe I have this correct, but I will run this past the Fools on the Tax Strategies Board. As of Jan. 1, 2000, doesn't the capital gains tax go from 20% to 18% for securities held longer than 5 years. Being the "Fool in Training" that I am, wouldn't it be worth waiting 6 weeks to buy stocks in order to be included in the new capital gains rules? I figure I will hold at least 5 years.
