I am little confused by wash sale.
Suppose I bought 200 jdsu on June 3, sold it on June 7 for a loss of $3000, then bought 300 jdsu on June 20, then sold it on June 30 for a loss of $1000. After that I had 30 days not trading/owning jdsu.

Question is, can I claim this $4000 loss? I think this is not applicable to wash sale rule because I did not own it afterwards for 30 days.

Thanks a lot for your help.
