On 2/1/99 I purchased VFINX and on 3/1/99 had the entire fund transferred over to VTSMX (don't ask why--a beginner's decision). I incurred a small loss.1040 instructions state: "A wash sale occurs when you sell stock at a loss and within 30 days before or after the sale, you directly or indirectly buy SUBSTANTIALLY IDENTICAL stock". All the stocks in VFINX are also in VTSMX. Do i have a wash sale?Thanks for your help.
