Can someone please tell me how a self-directed IRA works, or tell me where I can find this information. For instance, if I have a self-directed IRA with a bank, and I see a great CD rate that I want to take advantage of at another bank, can I simply write a check from my self-directed IRA and purchase that CD in the name of my self-directed IRA?
