... with high probability. The advantages of tax-deferred compounding is obvious. So, I wonder if I could do this: - sell $100k of deep OTM strangles, in IRA account. - buy $100k of same strangle, in regular account. With 95% probability, I essentially end up moving $100k into the IRA account from the regular account. With 5% probability, I move $100k into the taxable account. Anything wrong with this? IRA accounts can't open margin securities accounts, but can open futures accounts supporting option writing.
