In Brokerage account A, I own 150 shares of stock, long.In Brokerage account B, I have opened a short position in same stock, but have only sold 100 shares. Obviously, my Schedule D will have to reflect the sale, but is this listed as "open short", or do I (by hand) close the short using the basis of 100 shares owned long in my other account. Or is the position listed as "open" until Brokerage-B receives the transfer of shares from Brokerage-A and gets the instructions to close.- OR - ???I checked (very quickly) the FAQ, but didn't see this exact situation.I appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you, - DannyPS: To save any possible complications in the answer, both Long and Short positions were opened this calendar year, so no issues of Long-or-short term gain/losses.Please, no questions on how I got into this ridiculous situation.
