You can choose which parcel to sell. Obviously if you use the parcel you paid $32 for as the one you sold, then if you later sell the other half you have to use the $34 parcel.
Generally an investor would take into consideration tax liabilities to make the decision, as an example i might sell off parcels with a higher cost base if I dont have any losses to offset the capital gains, but in a year with losses to offset I may choose to sell a parcel with a very low cost base.
Your buy price is averaged
Your sell price is averaged if you sell different parcels.
Tax liabilities dont alter?
I buy 10000 at $1. 1/2/2020
Then 10000 at $1.40 1/3/2020
Then sell 5500 30/6/2020
Whats my profit and what am I taxed on?
