Harmonic balancer outer ring movement

The other day I put a new timing tape on the balance an notice the outer ring had moved about an 1/8 in. towards the timing chain cover.So then I checked for TDC with a piston stop,that was right on the mark.The balance isn't a high dollar one but it was new not used an has around 6000 miles on it.Should I be worried about it?

I've saw several that have rotated and been off on the timing mark. However there is no way I would trust it on my engine given the cost of replacement and what happens when it comes apart.
