One more (hopefully last on this subject) question. Since I have $22K in non deductible contributions and approximately $3K in appreciation in this account, can I pull out the $22K and leave the $3K in and avoid taxes?

I recently joined Motley Fool Pro but am hampered in trying to follow all the recommendations because most of my money is in two IRAs and a 401K in my name. I would take the $22K a put it into an individual account I already have in my name or open one in my wife's name.

Again, my rationale is to get the $22K into an individual account where I can avoid the option strategy restrictions that come with an IRA.
