My nighmare continues with Scottrade but that's a long story for another time. I had 5 funds. I told them to ligudate and transfer the money to my Scottrade IRA stock account. They did a direct transfer of 3 out of 5. Only took 2 months! Two of the Putnam IRA funds they did not liguidate and transfer the money from the Putnam fund. They transferred the Putnam fund inself? DUH!!!!

They told me no problem just sell it and put the money in the IRA stock account. Sounds Ok. Is it? No tax penalty? Thanks for your help I'm a greatful mushead FOOL!
