If you buy a stock on day 1, and sell at a loss on day 20. Does the wash rule apply?

Thanks in advance,

For the wash sale rules to start kicking in, you generally need two purchases and a sale, a potential loss, and to have some stock left when these are all done. So in your example, wash sales don't apply since all you did was buy and sell.

As ptheland notes, only if you purchase "replacement" stock. Read more about the wash sale rules in the Taxes FAQ area.
