I would like to move my IRA from a mutual fund to a self-directed IRA with a discount broker. Is that possible?
Greetings, WSelden, and welcome. You asked:<<I would like to move my IRA from a mutual fund to a self-directed IRA with a discount broker. Is that possible?>>Absolutely. Any discount broker will be glad to help you through the transfer process. Just pick one and give them a call. You'll complete and return two forms, one to open the self-directed IRA with the broker you choose and the other a set of instructions directing your current custodian to liquidate that IRA and send the proceeds to the new IRA custodian. That's called a direct transfer and avoids any possible tax hassles you could encounter if you rolled the funds yourself. So, find yourself a broker and enjoy. :-)Regards....Pixy
