I understand that I need to pay any fees to buy stocks in an IRA, out of the IRA. How about if you sell a stock, but all of the IRA money is in the stock. Would you be able to pay the fee from the money when the stock is sold or do you need to leave enough as cash in the account to make the transaction? I guess the same can apply to a regular brokerage account. If there is zero cash, can I sell?
