I recently left a job and put about $15K from my last employers 401K into a standard IRA Rollover acct. with an on-line broker.

I'm not employed now, but likely will be within 6-9 months or so and hopefully will be able to rollover the rollover IRA into my next company's 401K plan.

Are there any limitations to how or what I can invest the 15K in this interim time frame? If I invest in stocks, and the stocks are held < 1 yr, are the gains subject to standard LT/ST gain rules?

Thanks, sjensen12
