Greetings Fools,

I am interested in opening a Roth IRA Vanguard Index Fund. I would like to be using a higher output vehicle, like the Foolish Four, but the commisions would eat me alive for the next few years.

Once I get my index fund built up nicely, I would like to realign it into stocks using my deep discount broker. What are the penalties, if any, of dealing with a Roth IRA in this fashion?
