New to futures trading. I understand the default 40/60 long short term tax treatment of futures (not the upcoming stock futures) I have claimed Mark To Market for this years stock trading, and apparently this means that the futures side also gets treated as all short term gains and losses, nullifying the 40/60 advantage. As it turns out, a strategy I use hedges stock against eminis, and the gain/loss distribution is random. So, I don't think this is going to be a problem, or a tax disadvantage. Anyone else have experience with futures and Mark To Market tax status?
