Is there anything else better than simply deducting a mere $3000 a year?
Not unless you're a "trader" (term of art) who has made a mark to market election. I think this is what Peter was alluding to in his response. You can read about it in Publication 550.
Like Peter said, probably not a good idea, and definitely not to be done without first consulting with your own tax advisor.
