I have no idea, although I don't know why that would be impossible in theory. What I liquidated was a Swiss franc annuity in a profit sharing plan.
That should have been easy but wasn't because the insurance company was totally incompetent at sending me the money even though they were already using almost identical instructions to pay my mother's annuity every quarter.
I'm still waiting for Fidelity to transfer the money from my profit sharing account to my rollover IRA, because for some reason that can't be done online.
Nice! I have found them very good so far, but they are waiting for Fidelity to have the money in the right account before funding.
Ok, Fidelity has transferred part of the money and they have gotten it, so I've ordered some gold from my dealer to go into the IRA.
Interestingly enough, the premium for proof Eagles is pretty low, about 2.5%, whereas usually it's more like 15% at the bid, according to the dealer. He said he was paying
$200 over gold for proofs just last year. So that's what I bought, and will continue to buy as long as they have such a low premium. How much lower can it go? Probably not much, but it can go a lot higher.
