Hello there, I have a question. Since I bought the same stock 3 different times at 3 different prices then how does it work when I decide to sell them? I have notice that Trading 212 combine all the 3 purchases in 1 doing an average price of purchase. I understand the logic behind this and I agree that in the end it is the same, but I have a question regarding taxes on it.
I do an example. If I buy stock X at 12.1 (quantity 10), 13.4 (quantity 10) and 14 (quantity 10) what happens when I sell it at 13.6 (quantity 10)? I mean if we average the price it is like I bought those shares at an average price of 13.17 and, therefore, I have made a gain on the sale and pay taxes on it. However, if the 3 purchases where kept separately then I would consider it as a loss and not pay taxes on it (bought 14 - sold at 13.6).
Can someone explain?
