I hope you don't tell me I have to contact my broker Sorry, but that's exactly what you need to do. You must have written confirmation from your broker indicating what block of stock you have sold in order to have a proper specific identification of the stock sold.You do not necessarily need to execute the trade by phone. You just need to determine how to indicate what block of stock you are selling so that your broker will indicate that on your trade confirmation. How to do that varies by broker. Some discount brokers have that facility built in to their online trading system. Some require you to incur a higher commission and trade by phone.If this is an important part of your trading strategy, you might need to switch to a more user-friendly broker.--Peter
