Subject:  Funds into Roth IRA's? Date:  2/18/1998  5:19 PM

I am very interested in starting a Roth IRA at my discount broker. What I would like to do is roll over funds from my traditional IRA, AND put in my Foolish Four stocks from my current, non-IRA portfolio.

My question is - is it legal to transfer stocks from a traditional portfolio into a Roth IRA, and will I be able to trade these stocks just as I would have in a traditional portfolio (e.g. to adjust for the new follish fours every year)?

I am planning on keeping the IRA for at least 5 years, at which point I planon buying my first house, so I am not worried about whether I'll be able take the funds out
