I've got a naive question on wash rules. I'm wondering why October selling is attributed to the wash rules, when the 30-day limit would seem to support tax loss sales through November?I'm looking at a tax sale in which I buy, say 200 shares of ABC @ 25 to average down the 200 shares of ABC I currently own at a basis of 50. Buying on Nov 1, I can buy and hold to average down while preserving the option to sell my original 200 shares (@ 50) for a tax loss in december, maintaining my original position of 200 shares (albeit, resetting the long-term gain holding period).Am I missing 30 days somewhere on my calendar?Thanks.
