You mention that anything over a $3000 loss can be carried over, but can you carry over any loss. i.e. pick and choose what losses to file this year. I'd like to put my losses in 97' towards gains in 98', if possible, and just file the losses so it balances out the gains I had in 97. This does benefit me for some reason. Thanks for the help,
