I'm bored, so I thought I'd pass on this exciting bit of news.

My Small-Cap Value Index Fund Admiral Shares and my Value Index Fund Admiral Shares ended today with the exact same year-to-date return: 6.41%.

Indeed....although if boredom came to me, I would rather go over the pond to London

Substantially identical returns. I wonder if exchanging would be a wash sale.

The law says nothing of substantially identical returns.

I was alluding to an earlier discussion with gkaplan when he was considering a transfer to D.C. Frankly, given a (reasonable) choice I would also go to London (or NYC).
