The safest answer is to just wait the 30 days. Especially since you're considering this for a bond fund. Bonds funds are not known for their quick changes in share price. I'd guess that you would see little risk of the fund price moving against you while you waited the 30 days.

This reasoning is the obvious answer that escaped me. I've held the bond funds for a couple of years, and they have moved ~$1.50 total.

Thanks for pointing out the forest; the trees were in the way!!!
