ira. Ex: use Roth IRA money to buy stock....stock move up...sell. no tax on these earning? that just sounds like is too good to be true!!!

It's true!

The part you've forgotten is that this money is still
in your Roth IRA. If you take the $$ out before the
rules stipulate you can, then you have to pay
tax.

Of course if let it stay and use it as a retirement
account as it was intended, you really do pay
no tax
