Hello again,

I have two stocks I would like to talk about and get a anser for my questions.

No. 1 I have purchsed 500 shaes Lucent Feb. 8 and sold Feb 24 for a gain. I purchased 1000 shares on Feb. 25 and sold same day for gain. I purchased 500 shares on Mar. 1 and took a loss on April 14th of $10,358.99. I have no more shares at this time.

I now have purchased 1000 shares today July 20th over 90 days later.

Do I have a wash or loss above? and do I add the loss or wash to my new purchase of Lucent?

No. 2 I have purchase 1000 shares of Schwab Feb. 28 and sold for gain Feb. 29. I did the same on Mar. 24 for gains. I purcased 1000 shares on Mar. 27 and sold for a loss on April 14th for $22,983.74

Is this a wash or loss? and I still own 7000 plus shares of Schwab. What do I do with this loss or wash and what happens if I buy another 1000 shares?
