Within your Roth you can buy and sell to your heart's content, all you want, and nothing you do is taxable. You don't report your buys and sells to the IRS. Nothing interests them unless you prematurely take money out of the Roth. No worries about wash sales or long vs short term capital gains, nothing. You pay the tax going in on the amount contributed. If you can grow it 1000% a year, it is all yours as long as you don't prematurely withdraw it.
So trade every day if you wish! Chris
