I know you can borrow cash for 60 days. But my IRA is 99.9% invested in stocks. It's a traditional IRA.
Can I borrow those shares for 60 days, transferring them to my regular brokerage account and using them as margin collateral, then returning those same shares back to the IRA before the 60 day mark?
I don't need any lectures about the dangers of margin. I'm just curious to know if this is possible.
(My IRA is up about 100% over the last 12 months and my regular account about 300%, so don't worry, I'm fine)
(P.S. as far as Roth vs Traditional, the tax savings from my Traditional went into my regular brokerage account and earned me 300% in a year. Opportunity cost of a Roth makes it worse than Traditional. Case closed.)
