Greetings, ICHIMNU, and welcome to the Fool!

What is the potential tax loss ...

There are no tax consequences within an IRA. With the Roth, you paid taxes on the money before you deposited it. With a Regular IRA, you pay at withdrawal. With both, all transactions inside the IRA have no tax consequences.

Your strategy could make some sense in a taxable account. I think a simpler plan is to sell at 11 months some year when you have a loss. (And in 25 years, you should expect some losses.)

Fool on!
