are futures commisions deducted against gain?

  1. I have a tax question.

    Let say i make 10K gain trading futures and my total commisions to the broker for the year are 20k? Can i take 20k (commission) - 10k (gain) and get -10k and count it as having a loss for the year?

    I am not filling as a trader status but an individual investor.

    Thanks for answering.
