you can delete old trace files not those which are getting generated today.

I think there will be no impact if you delete old trace files which are unwanted.

I concur, and wish to add a comment that performance is impacted by the growth in your listener and alert logs.  Not significantly, but you may want to replace your listener log when it grows above 2-5 Mb.
