I wrote covered calls on a stock that plunged in value and the shares were called today. I wrote calls twice netting about $1100. The sale of the stock will result in a taxable loss of approx $7500. The loss is short term. I won't get into the stock again for another 31 days if at all.Just so I fully understand:- Can I offset the gain on the options with the loss on the stock?- Can I use the remaining loss on the stock to offset other dividends, interest and cap gains?I'm under the impression that the answer to both is yes, but I figured I'd make sure.
