A few months ago when the market dropped, I requested that my IRA be converted to a Roth. By the time the discount broker got around to making the change, the market had a significant run-up. I called to try and stop the transaction and I was assured that the transaction would be put on hold. Well they made the transaction anyway. I am headed for Brown and company in short order.

I understand, I can have the Roth placed back into an IRA and later converted back to a Roth. I believe I read this some where on the board but would appreciate confirmation. Do I have just this year 2000 to make the change? Will the fee be the taxed amount between the recaracterization and the next conversion. So much to learn but with the fools help, it is so much easier. Thanks so much for you assistance
