Mark to market

Mark to market Definition

The practice of taking an open position at the end of the year and handling it as if it had been sold even though the position in the security may still be open. This results in the recognition of income or loss (for tax purposes) on positions that have not yet been closed out. Traders wishing to use this tax strategy in the current year must have elected mark-to-market (section 475) by the filing date of the previous year.
