I opened a Roth IRA in 2001.  I took all the money out in 2013 when I turned age 59 ½. Although the account was still open a few months longer, there is no money in it.

Now, 6 months later, I want to do a Roth conversion with an investment of $30,000 that is currently in my self-directed IRA at another institution.  The upside potential for this $30,000 investment in the next 5 years is huge so it seems to make sense that it would be better off in a Roth.
