After reading the two articles above, a question came to mind. Say you manage to become a trader in the eyes of the IRS, if you have tax losses previously filed and yet unclaimed, can you take all the losses during the year you start reporting as a trader? I realize you can take up to $3000 per year anyway, but would this new designation enable you to take more than that to "clear the books" on those prior losses? Any help would be appreciated.
