Hello,Suppose the following transactions take place (for simplicity I am ignoring commissions):I buy 100 shares of MSFT @ 100 on 2/1/2000I buy 100 shares of MSFT @ 100 on 2/2/2000I sell 100 shares of MSFT @ 99 on 2/3/2000 but I identify the shares sold as the ones on 2/2/2000 (this is a loss of $100)Is this a wash sale? (i.e., my question is - can you have a wash sale because of shares you bought before the ones involved in the sale transaction?)If so, then the holding period of the shares I purchased on 2/1/2000 would be moved up to 2/2/2000, correct?Thanks,Carl Erikson
