Wash Sale

Stock approved by the Federal Reserve and an investor's broker as being suitable for providing collateral for margin debt.

Additional Comments:

Depositing marginable stocks (or any other marginable securities) in a margin account is an effective way for an investor to reduce financing charges. However, the criteria to ensure that securities are suitable as collateral for margin debt can be quite strict. The Federal Reserve has a minimum set of standards for marginable stock, but a broker can choose to set stricter standards.
