Yes, there is, but I am not familiar with the details. If you have short and long term gains and short and long term losses that you wish to offset with each other you need to be careful that you first offset apples with apples and then oranges with oranges, so to say.
I am not familiar about the regulations on offsetting apples with oranges, unfortunately... ;-)
