Thanks Roy.. Am I correc to assume that even though this isn't in the Pub 550, it is in the Tax Code? Here's my situation. I bought and sold SEEK three times within a few days - one of which was at a loss - thereby creating a wash sale.. but I sold the entire position and have not bought and won't past 31 Dec.. so, from your interpretation, wash sale rules don't apply - or as you say, become moot? Thanks. Fool on.
