  1. Couldn’t I take many of the benefits that accrued to someone with trader status?

    Yes, you would get all the profits without taking any risk. Don’t tell anyone.
     
  5. Well ... list a benefit/deduction I wouldn’t get?
     
  6. What do you mean? Are you saying you are just a writer and not a trader?
     
  7. If you are just a writer then you can continue your freelancing career as a stock writer and can make money.
     
  8. You can do this on seeking alpha and get paid if your writing is good enough.
