Capital Gains & Losses

What is the last day of the year I can sell a stock and take a loss?


You can sell a stock on December 31 and still take the loss, even though the settlement date is in the following year. Of course, if December 31 is a Sunday, you better sell that stock on December 29th since the market is closed!
