I traded a stock in one month a lot, and made some money for the first a few trades (say from July 1st to July 14), then lost some money in the later trades (say the second half of July). I think the loss has to be wash sale (cauz I bought some more in Aug. <30 days), but then can I offset my gains from my wash sale loss?

Thanks a lot?
