Redeeming a Bond

My broker redeemed a bond in my IRA and put the proceeds into the cash part of the IRA. I downloaded the transaction and the category was listed as uncategorized. What would be a better category for this transaction? Just a Transfer?

    The bond redemption should be recorded as a sale of a security, maybe at no gain or loss depending on whether you bought the bond at par.  If the "cash part of the IRA" is a different Account than the Account in which the redemption took place, then that would be accounted for as a transfer.

    the cash part is in the same account.

    Then you shouldn't need a transfer, just the sale.
