I want to institute the foolish four plan for part of my IRA. The part I am not sure about is selling of stock within an IRA. I have been told that you cannot sell stock you purchased in an IRA without taking a penalty. From reading this site, I now think that I can sell stock within my IRA as long as I do not withdraw any of that money from my IRA account. Is this correct? Thanks for the help.
