*i* can't see any meaningful difference between thisexample (buy 300, sell 100 at a loss) and AM's firstexample (#19003: buy 200, sell 50)....Good Gosh! Please tell me that it's not true! In this case, you could never divest yourself of a portion of your holdings (at a loss) if you feel you have made a mistake in purchasing too many of the same stock without ending up with a wash sale. Bummer. And, if this is true, I would have to sell my entire position in order to eliminate the wash. Big Bummer.Bob? Are you there?Also - how about this one (from my earlier post): What if I sell the offending 50 shares of YHOO (those that made the sale of the other 50 shares a wash sale) before this tax year ends. Does that eliminate the wash sale?Thanks again.AngelMay :o)
