A wash sale occurs if you sell shares at a loss and buy additional shares (even in another account) of the same or substantially identical security within 30 days before or after the sale.
The Wash Sale Rule prevents an investor from obtaining the benefit of a tax loss without having reduced the investment. Under the rule, the loss is treated as "washed" when the new shares are acquired. The holding period of the original shares is added to the cost basis of the reacquired shares and is deferred until the reacquired shares are sold.Watch List
A list of securities you want to track. You can include stocks, mutual funds, money markets, options, and indexes in a watch list. You can create up to 15 watch lists and each watch list can have up to 50 securities. The 15 watch lists include any you might have created using the Watch List feature under the Research tab as well as those you created using Fidelity Active Trader Pro® and Alerts.Watch List Name
The name you give a watch list and that is displayed when you view a watch list. Watch lists displayed using Watch Lists on Fidelity.com can have a name up to 25 characters in length. Watch lists created using other features can have names that are longer. If you view a watch list with a name that is longer than 25 characters, the first 23 characters display with the suffix -a (e.g., My early retirement wat-a).
Also, now that all of your watch lists are available regardless of the feature you used to add them (e.g., add watch lists using Fidelity Active Trader Pro® and Fidelity.com) it is possible that you may have watch lists with the same name causing duplicate watch list names. Watch lists with duplicate names display with the -a suffix.Weekly Options
