    If you sell at a loss, then it doesn't matter the number of shares when you buy back, as it's still considered a short sale. Also, and this is VERY important.... Say that you buy shares @ .20, .15, and .08. Your cost average is around .12, so you sell when it hits .14. You end up buying back shares within the 30 day period when it drops back down to .12, but you end up with a wash sale because a portion of your original shares were purchased above the selling price.

    This happened to me before. I always thought that the wash sale was based on cost average, but it's NOT!
