Hi,

I have a few questions to ask you FOOL regarding retirement. I am thinking about opening a discount brokerage account for my ROTH IRA. Can one buy share of stocks and then sell them within the ROTH IRA account? Beside the transaction fees charged through the discount brokerage, is there a penalty for doing those transaction? Is there a time frame limit that you must hold on to your stock before selling them? For example, in your regular stock account (not retirement), if you sell your stock less then a year, you would pay higher penalty taxes then if you sell them after a year. Does that restriction applies to the retirement account, especiall ROTH IRA? I am thinking of seeking out a tax advisor regarding if I should roll over my traditional IRA to ROTH IRA. Do any of you know a good tax advisor who is not too expensive? Thanks!
