I have a stock that I'm considering selling at a loss for tax purposes. (I've held less than a year in a taxable account.) I think the stock has potential though so I'd like to buy it again. I know I'll have to wait 30 days in my taxable account, but what about buying it in my Roth IRA? Can I buy it back immediately in that account or do I still have to wait 30 days?
Thanks in advance for any advice
