In a revocable living trust you absolutely do not!  You keep full control.  As the trustee of your trust you can do everything you could do before, including buying, selling, investing, etc.  You can make changes or even canels your trust, that’s why it is called a revocable living trust.  In fact you don’t even need to file your taxes any differently either, as in the eyes of the law everything remains as if it is yours- as if had been before you set up your trust, and not your family has the benefit of avoiding probate and having a seamless transition of your assets to them.
