Yes I know about the superficial loss rule, from what I understand it can be avoided by switching to an index fund that has similar market exposure but tracks a slightly different index.
Haven't TLH myself, but it's on the radar, being in the red on VCN purchased this past year. Not deep enough yet to bother, only -$0.19 per share less than ACB.
Also be aware across your and spouse accounts, that the same ETF you sell at a "loss" cannot be repurchased for 30 days (including an automatic dividend reinvestment you might have set up previously.) This is causing me to pause, as I have VCN in 4 accounts still.
Your post leads me to point out...
especially as interest rates start rising, bonds to RSP, US to RSP, Canada to non-registered. Still slowly rebalancing my VCN out to non-reg.
