If you sold an equity on April 11th 2016 when can you rebuy it and avoid a wash sale?

If you sold it at a loss and want to buy it back (or any other "substantially identical" security), to avoid a wash sale you would need to wait 31 days after 4/11/16.

It depends on whether you sold it for a loss or not.

April 11 is day 0.
April 12 is day 1.
You can buy it AFTER 30 days. You cannot buy ON day 30.

So you can buy on the 31st day?
