Here is a quetion that I could not find the answer to. Actually I need a clarification.

I put $2000 into a Roth in January. I get a 100% return, so I have $4000 in my account now. Can I sell half my stock and withdraw the $2000 cash? Are there any taxes or penalties to pay?

I know that I should not do this because the money is for retirement, but I am curious. Please e-mail responses to me.
