This Regulation was developed to deter an individual taxpayer from selling a security, incurring a capital loss then repurchasing the security for the same amount. Essentially the individual will get a tax benefit from lowering their basis in a security. You are allowed to buy and sell the same security throughout the year, but you must wait at least 30 days from year end to repurchase the same stock.
