Why does my statement not reflect my loss?

A "wash sale" happens when a trader sells shares at a loss and buys similar ones within a 61-day period (30 days before and after the sale). The loss is added to the cost basis of the replacement shares. When those shares are sold, the disallowed loss is recognized. The holding period of the original shares is combined with the new ones'.
