I have a loss in NXTL in my personal account--500sh bought at 28.5 and it's now 23-24. I like the stock.
Could I sell it from my personal account and buy it the same time in my Keogh account and take a loss for '97 taxes, or do the wash sale rules apply because I am the promary beneficiary of my Keogh trust?
