Please forgive me if this has already been covered (a dozen times), but I'm new to this forum, and still not entirely clear about IRA's - Roth in particular.

I know the money is already taxed, and that the interest is tax free forever. But is it the case that I can invest the money however I want, buying stock, selling stock & rolling the proceeds into different stock as time goes on? I always kind of assumed that once I put money in an IRA it would have to stay in the same place forever... Color me "uninformed" if necessary :-)
