Just curious as to how many claim Trader status for U.S. taxes? This includes filing schedules C and D, and the 475 (I think I've got these right...). In the mid-late 90's, I and many others on the floor did this. I've been away from trading for awhile, but am returning, so am trying to get reacquainted with all this again. I've got Tesser's book, The Trader's Tax Solution, published in 2000, but would be interested in thoughts and experiences of others doing this currently. Would also like to hear how this issue is handled in other countries - Europe, Asia, etc. Thanks!
