I am wondering if following instance is subject to wash sale or not. I bought ABC stock 100sh. at $21 on Many 1, 100sh. at $20 on May 15 and 100sh. at $17 on June2. And then sold all of them (300sh.) at $20 on June 25. Afterward, I bought again 300sh. at $17 on July 5. The reason I think this might be subject to wash sale rule is that I lost on first 100sh. stock and then I bought within 30 days.($20-$21)*100=-$100 But to think different way, when I file a tax return, I may report all 300sh. together by marking "VARIOUS" on date and so I can report to make $200 instead of having lost money. ($20*300)-($21+$20+$17)*100=$200 So I am not subject to wash sale rule. Which way of thinking is correct? I will appreciate of your credible opinion. Thank you.
