Hi,I was wondering whether anyone knows what constitutes substantially identical option contracts - this is in the context of wash sales.The specific scenario is:1. Sold an October '12 205 Put on company XYZ and closed the position at loss2. Sold a January '13 200 Put on company XYZ within the 31 day window.Is a January '13 200 Put considered to be substantially identical to a November '12 205 Put ?My assumption is they are, they have almost the same risk/reward characteristics, but I haven't found a definitive rule anywhere. Thanks,David
