Because of wash sales Im thinking about just waiting 31 days from my last trade so that my new broker will have the correct amounts in the gain loss section. The other thing I was thinking about is could my account just be transfered over to a new broker and then when I buy a stock the wash sale would automatically be shown in the gain loss section?
Ive already told scottrade I had made a mistake by modifing an existing order and wasnt aware that it would be counted as 2 day trades. Now I know. They dont care about losing me as a customer and my account is still frozen.
If i did a transfer to the new broker would the pattern day trader status be transfered as well?
Another option is to just sign up for a new broker and not mention the pattern day trader status, but I would probably want to wait 31 days for my wash sales to be done with so their gain loss section would be correct.
