    Um. Define shorting. I am not sure your definition is the same as the accepted definition.

    Day traders short stocks on daily basis. More than daily, hourly...or more, or less.

    My definition of shorting in this context is less than a year....you pay less capital gains taxes if you hold more than a year. IRS standards.

    I thought that was what you were referring to. You are talking about holding a "long" (long-term) position versus a short-term position in a given asset. Just so you know, "shorting" or "being short" on a stock is something entirely different. Maybe I am wrong and misunderstanding you, but this is how Wallstreet defined "Short" last I knew:

    You're just long for less than a year.

    The ape is laughing at you for worrying about what your capital gains impact will be. I, on the other hand, have my fingers crossed for you.
    Be Not Afraid.

    I laugh at little but your intellect; and everything else of course.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
