I have a wash sale question, if anyone can help. I know you can't acquire or buy the same stock or option within the 30-day prior / 30-day post-sale holding period in order to take a loss. If I don't buy or acquire a new position thirty days on either side of the loss sale date, can I still take a loss if I'm still holding Apple common and options that were bought before the start of the 61-day period? The language says you can't buy or acquire - is it okay to still be holding previously-acquired stock? This is in the same account.
For example, I sell a position in AAPL on December 1, 2012 for a loss, having done nothing for the previous thirty days and doing nothing until December 31, 2012. But I still hold an AAPL position that I opened on, say, Feb 1, 2012. Can I take that loss, or is it a wash sale?
Sorry I don't have an answer but have a question as well. Anyone know if a wash sale applies if you sell an option for a loss then rebuy within 30 days with same underlying but different strike and expirations?

I think this is one of those fuzzy areas, but I *think* that different strike prices or expiries of the same underlying doesn't qualify as substantially different securities. In other words, you can't sell and then immediately buy another option in another month.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).
