How Does the IRS-Mandated “Seven-Day Rule” Apply to Me?

Established by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the seven-day rule states that, regardless of the type of IRA created, your Alto IRA will be restricted from completing any investment transactions for the first seven days after creation. Please note that the seven-day period commences upon signing your account's respective Form 5305.
