I am looking at harvesting some losses on NFLX to offset significant LT capital gains which I have realized this year. I am thinking of selling some NFLX at the current price (~$79.60) to book about $28,000 of losses, and at the same time sell Jan $80 puts for $8.50. Would this run afoul of the wash sale rules? I've seen conflicting advice.
