    Generally, yes.

      On the flip side, if a single intraday swing wipes out what you were going to TLH then you're probably TLHing too much and that's a good way to really start to complicate your portfolio.
      I hear your point but not that complicated really. Just follow my IPS and hold longterm if needed

        I would prefer just to do a big TLH rather than 5 smaller ones within a month and now all of a sudden I've got a bunch of various mutual funds but your mileage may vary. For me, simplicity is key.

          Everyone's gotta have a hobby lol. Simple is good. In case not obvious for others, TLH is optional and not gonna move the needle much overall

            I agree it is optional for most and won’t generally move the needle. In my case I am building a bank to offset some property sales, so I look for larger TLH opportunities.

              A market order during market hours, on a very large volume ETF like VTI, with a narrow spread, is very low risk as long as it’s not placed during a time of panic-like volatility. If I’m missing something please correct me.

              A market order placed after hours and set to execute the next morning would seemingly be a very bad idea.

                Correct.

                  ETFs for taxable are growing on me.

                  I own both ETFs and MF.

                  If was starting out and had to pick, I would go with VTI & VXUS for a taxable brokerage account.
