Hello folks,

I would like to know if this is possible. I have been reading a few articles, but I have not found one that would answer my question. Here goes.

I would like to sell for loss =( stocks from my regular account, let say AT&T. Deposit $2,000 in my IRA comes January 2. Buy back the same stock in my IRA account (Roth IRA). Since Roth IRA is a tax sheltered account, would the wash rule applies in this case?

Thanks for your input
