  • International tlh

    I just decided to TLH my international vanguard fund. VTIAX to VMNVX. For some reason only a few International funds were available— the one in the WCI tutorial was not. I just picked one with a low ish expense ratio. Is this ok?

      VFWAX did not seem to be an option to choose...many of the international options were blocked out. Perhaps because I was doing it on a Sunday afternoon? Should I sell the new one and try to buy another one?

              it seems available now but not for this account because the transaction is "in progress"

              Should i switch once it is done?

                You may have a STCG but I'd definitely switch.

                  VTIAX-> VFWAX is the best option, additionally you could use 80% VTMGX / 20%VEMAX

                   

                  I would change VMNVX as it is only 0.77 correlated vs VFWAX is 1.0

                    ok, thanks!

                    Another question -- after 30 days do you buy back the original stock? VTIAX

                      Only if you have another loss.

                        And it's 31 days.  Honestly I think you need to do a lot more reading.  Have you gone through the wiki on bogleheads? ( https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Tax_loss_harvesting )
