I have a general question for the board. As it stands right now, I will have substantial realized losses this year from various stock transactions. I am aware that I can defer these losses to next year and write off against next years' gains (hopefully). How many years into the future can realized losses be deferred and then deducted against future gains?

I sincerely appreciate the help!!
