JAFO, thanks for the direction. Had given up a somewhat random search before getting to that unfamiliar term.

Checking my interpretation as it applies to my example... I am risking the tax differential I calculated earlier versus the potential lost gains from that 30 days I am on the sidelines. Of course, if I decide to feel more comfortable with buying some other stock anyway this is a moot point.

Feels a bit against my buy-and-hold grain.

Thanks.
