Hi All,A few months back (before I found this site) I opened a Roth IRA with $2,000. It's a high growth international type of fund with 2.5% fees. The fees are obviously high based upon what I have read @fool.com.I had heard on CNBC (take it easy, this was before I found fool.com) and someone there mentioned that you could take out the original amount penalty free. But the company that the fund is with says I have to pay a 10% penalty if I take it out before 5 years.I have a student loan with 8.5% rate. I was thinking about cashing in the Roth to pay down on the loan.Is this a bad idea or a good one?By the way the fund has lost money ever since opening the account, but it's close to what it was when I purchased it.TIA,Steve Rowdenscrowden@aol.com
