I've got a BTD portfolio that is due to be reinvested.
I know I'm supposed to keep all the stocks for 366 days
so they are taxed as long term capital gains. My question
is should I sell the losers early to create short term losses? It seems logical but since taxes often defy
logic I'm curious if anyone knows a problem with this plan.
