Thanks for your reply, Roy!

I guess I was confused about the context of that paragraph that I cited from the MF Tax FAQ. Now that you made it clear that you were talking about hedge positions in two different tax years, it all makes sense. So yes, both the IRS Pub. 550 and the FAQ present the same interpretation.

Sorry for the confusion,
Carl
