No. of Recommendations: 1
I am not sure you have provided enough information. That said, I have two comments:

#1 Why are you rebalancing? How frequently? Are you acting because it is recommended by "experts"? I suggest you look up for data, not "theory" but data on rebalancing. I am sure there are other sets of data, but the only set I am aware of says decreasing the frequency of rebalancing increases the portfolio's return, with the maximum return at over 6 years. This is William Bengen's data.

#2 Instead of selling and buying, there is another option - put new funds in a specific allocation or if you are withdrawing funds, withdraw from a specific allocation.
