Does the wash sale rule apply when you sell all shares (some at a loss) purchased in different lots, of the same stock, if some of the lots were purchased within the 30 day period before the total liquidation of all of the position.For Example:Sept. 1) Bought XYZ 100 shares at $10.00 = $1000Sept. 3) Bought XYZ 100 shares at $6.00 = $600 Total = $1600Sept. 15) Sell XYZ 200 shares at $8.00 = $1600 Loss on first lot = $400 Gain on second lot = $400I have sometimes used this method to recover losses from an ill-timed initial entry. Do the wash sale rules apply here, no matter how many lots were purchased to average down, and then all of the position was sold? I know I must claim the gain on the second lot, but will I be allowed to claim the loss on the first lot. If I repurchase this security within 31 days will the loss be disallowed and the wash sale rule apply?Thanks in advance for any offered help.Alan
