Claiming a loss on shares will trigger the wash sale rules, even if other shares had gains. Next time, sell only the gainers if you want to buy more in less than 30 days. Otherwise, just sell the loser and wait 30 days to buy more to take the loss off your taxes. (watch out for reinvested dividends if you still own shares as they can trigger the wash sale rule)
