I've recently read about the possibility of 'selecting' the shares one wants to sell in order to choose the most tax-advantageous ones (for example, to take a short-term loss or small gain while preserving longer-held shares so they can qualify for long-term taxes).
What I saw said one needs to ask the broker to simply confirm one's statement identifying which shares one sold.
So far so good. My question is, what e-mail address or other mechanism does one use for this on Datek, to ask them for snail-mail confirmation on the stock identification?
Do you have to do it by phone? Hope not.
Were they clueful enough to know what you were asking them for, and that they need not do anything other than just send you a letter saying exactly what you told them?
Thanks.
