I'm starting to confuse myself.

I understand that will reduce the investable dollar amount, but I thought I also heard that there was no early withdrawal penalty for closing a Roth (the caveat being you couldn't open another one for a year). If this is the case, you would have to pay early withdrawal penalties on the traditional IRA to open the Roth?
