Looking back at my past trades, it seems that I always hesitate to take losses because of the nagging thought of wash sale rules. I don't know if this is masking the psychological resistance to take a loss, or if it's just purely due to w.s. concerns. Do other traders worry about this at all, when trading in and out of the same equity? Or do you just stop trading that equity in november? It's also a pain to ferret out which ones are wash sales at dreaded year end reconciliation time. What I'm getting at is... for those who scalp multiple trades, does this ever even cross your mind as an issue?
