    Dear all

    can i do Tax loss harvesting afterhours . What's the best time to do a TLH if I want to do it from vtiax to vfwax?
    thanks

    Sure, but if you trade the mutual funds the transaction will close the end of the next trading day. You are better off waiting until near market close so you know what happened that trading day.

        get used to looking up vxus (the etf tracking the similar index) at around 3 pm, and 330 pm to see how the market is doing- if it shows a significant loss, chances are very good that the mutual fund will close at 4 pm with a loss. So I lock my TLH in at around that time, depending on where I am (Im not doing it during an OR case for instance, but will if I'm in between cases waiting for the room to turn over). Sometimes a rally does happen between 3-4 (like today's sp500) but usually my losses are enough before I think about TLH that there still will be a loss.
