I wouldn't comment if this scenario you proposed and then dropped is good or not, however if you were to do something similar, you should try to transfer units in kind betweeen accounts to avoid trading fees.

If you transfered 300 units at that day's market price of say $10, your withdrawal from the TFSA would be $3,000 and there would be no trading fee (TDW has one free withdrawal per year and each transaction is $25 afterwards). If you timed it to have a market price above $10 on the day you transferred into your RRSP, you benefit would be greater - again with no trading fee . Say the market had low volume but the price for the day was $11.50, your 300 units would be worth $3,450 regardless if the days volume could have traded your 300 units at $11.50.
