Subject:  Can I Buy then Sell in < 30 Days? Date:  9/10/2001  1:50 PM

A hopefully quick question:

I know if I sell a stock I have to wait thirty days to repurchase it, but if I purchased high and then purchased more when it dropped. Do I have to wait more than thirty days to sell the the original shares, or can I take the loss sooner?
