I'm getting ready for TAX selling some my lossers. I'm trying to figure my stradigy. I CAN have both Long and Short Term Loses. I HAVE both Long and Short Term GAINS
obviouly I want to minimize my taxes.

1. Can I deduct Long Term Losses from higher taxed Short Term Gains and NOT deduct them from my Long Term Gains?
2. Can I deduct Short Term Losses from my Long Term Gains even if I don't have many Short Term Gains?
