I have a slight dilemma; what would you do in this situation?

I own SPY I've owned it for a long time and I have some pretty large unrealized long-term capital gains. I want to sell some of my SPY and use it to buy VIG. (to prepare for a possible recession after we saw the inverted yield curve last month). but I receive ACA subsidies. I'm worried that if I sell... show more I own SPY

I've owned it for a long time and I have some pretty large unrealized long-term capital gains.

I want to sell some of my SPY and use it to buy VIG. (to prepare for a possible recession after we saw the inverted yield curve last month).

but I receive ACA subsidies.
I'm worried that if I sell some SPY; it would increase my income on paper and thus have the effect of reducing my subsidies.

Is it worth it?
