I have no idea what you are asking for. (Or did I say that already?)

I'm curious about that phrase "forced liquidation". The scenarios that have been mentioned, "buy out law partner at pennies on the dollar", "pay for a daughter's life-saving operation", "take advantage of a lucrative opportunity" are not forced at all. They are voluntary -- you *choose* to take the money out of your retirement account for non-retirement reasons. The only "forced" liquidation you'd face is if the broker hit you with a margin call and sold you out. But that won't happen here, because we won't use margin here.



It kinda got lost in this endless discussion, but Dave explains what he means way up in post 72810.
