so i been trading for a while 10+ years, not a pro or nothing but this is the first time i do not understand my total gains/loss.

the way i have always looked at it was like this ie

acct start: 2k
gains/loss: 8k
acct end: 10k

so now i have 8k in realized gains

now say with them same funds i win some and lose some...

with them same funds say i go all in with 10k and sell everything to where my acct is now only 1k.

it seems to me my total gain/loss would now be -9k.

im just using those numbers cuz its easy to work with. the reason im asking ? is cuz my brokerage is saying my loss about 6k less than what it should be.

what am i not taking into account?

Based on your example, your -9k at the end is based on the 10k max it reached. You should be counting from 2k not 10k. That's how it's totaled for tax purposes. So really if you went from 2k to 10k back down to 1k...you're only down 1k from your start.


There's probably just a math error on your end regarding the 6k difference you're getting at.

i see what youre saying but if the acct stayed at 10. id be paying taxes on the the 8. so likewise if i lost 8 that was made thats still a tax loss.

If it's after the year is over yes.

But if it's before December 31st then you have to calculate it from your principle amount.

I see we got another weak NFP #.

Funny how everyone was expecting something positive to come out in the first place.

TGIF, though. I need some time off

damn 07 well done

how much of an investment did you make to be up that much on your options?
thinking of getting into the options game in a market like this...if I start I'll definately get your membership, I got paid nicely the last time I subscribed to your stock website.

Opened two contracts on Cocoa this morning at market open, caught a price of 2255, sold at 2335 for a $1600 profit. Not bad for a few hours of work. I think the trend might be up on Cocoa though, probably as high as 2375, so I'm probably gonna reopen that long position depending on what it does does tomorrow.

Not a horrible day.

$AA had an OK report. Don't think it is a market mover. I'd like to see a flush to the 1340 mark. But we might go higher before FOMC minutes this week.

Everyone and their mother still expecting QE3

Oh, 07, not bad on the $FB calls. I'd be looking likeif I cashed in on that this morning.

^ I held though, ended up giving back 2/3 of the gains on FB ....but I'm still looking for more upside so hopefully it plays out.

Had I gotten perfect exits on everything today including GPS I would have made over 5 grand.

I agree. TOS has pretty much everything. But it's so detailed, I get frustrated with all their options and what not. It's fully loaded nonetheless.
