Janice-
I'm neither Badger nor Pixie, but I have the same plan as you -- "take advantage" of market losses in non-tax-deferred accounts by converting to Roth IRAs some of my regular IRA funds that have tanked but are likely to rebound. Sounds like a Foolish strategy that carries both immediate and deferred tax advantages.
Would be interested in what others have to say.
