Buying triggers wash sales. When you sell all of your holding in a stock and do not rebuy within 30 days after the ale, then there is no wash sale.

If you are planning on only selling the 10 shares bought on June 6, 2009 and not trigger a wash sale with the June 30th purchase, then you will need to wait the 30 days.
