§ 1.475(d)-1 - Character of gain or loss.

(a) Securities never held in connection with the taxpayer's activities as a dealer in securities. If a security is never held in connection with the taxpayer's activities as a dealer in securities, section 475(d)(3)(A) does not affect the character of gain or loss from the security, even if the taxpayer fails to identify the security under section 475(b)(2).

(b) Ordinary treatment for notional principal contracts and derivatives held by dealers in notional principal contracts and derivatives. Section 475(d)(3)(B)(ii) (concerning the character of gain or loss with respect to a security held by a person other than in connection with its activities as a dealer in securities) does not apply to a security if § 1.475(b)-1(c) and the absence of a determination by the Commissioner prevent section 475(b)(1)(A) from applying to the security.
