I have a Roth IRA with, and would like to shift a position. I want to sell my shares of one company's stock, and then reinvest that money in a different company. When the shares are sold, the money will be kept in a MM account until I submit a buy order.

So my question is: As long as the MM account is within the IRA, can I sell the stock without incurring a tax penalty as long as I don't withdraw the money and use it to purchase stock within the same IRA account? I asked the people at BAH, but they wouldn't give me a straight answer (I'm sure they're just being careful about incurring liability for giving tax advice when they are not licensed to do taxes). Any help will be appreciated.
