Simple question (I've searched the site and not found an answer): Girlfriend bought several shares of stock early this year thru online broker (DLJdirect). Now wants to move these already owned shares into an IRA. Broker answered emailed question by saying no, you can't shift stocks from a regular brokerage account into an IRA account. It seems odd not to be able to do so. Is this standard policy, or is DLJ being weird (or the email answerer being lazy), and might another broker gladly start an IRA using already owned securities?
Thanks for any help.
