I've searched all over for an answer to this question but all examples assume you actually made money in your Roth account. I have not. Ie. my Roth is worth less than what I put in. So, if I ever need this money and want to withdraw, do I get penalized? All examples I see talk about penalizing gains.
Thanks,
