Does the washout rule about buying and selling stocks or funds within a 30-day period pertain to individual accounts or to the single investor?

The wash sale rule isn't limited to a singular account and is evaluated at the individual level. For example, you have violated the wash sale rule if you sell XYZ stock from your Fidelity brokerage account and then repurchase XYZ stock from your TD Ameritrade brokerage account before the 30-day period has expired.
