I agree with the other posters that banks are not the optimum places to hold IRA assets. You would be better served to open one or more IRA's with a conventional brokerage house, online or otherwise and gain the control of your accounts without restrictions on what and when, you can buy and sell assets. It is as simple
as calling them up, filling a few forms and sending them in. They will take it from there; but be prepared
to wait a few weeks while the paperwork is processed. Once the forms are submitted to broker, advise the bank
to suspend trading in the accounts to avoid potential paperwork snafus. Good Luck! - - Matthew
