My trading accounts qualify for Trader Tax Status, my investment accounts do not. They are kept completely separate. This is made easier by the fact that I do not manage my investment accounts somebody else does, but it shouldn't matter either way. I thought Green did a great blog on this but couldn't find it. I did find his Forbes article similair to his Golden Rules for Trader Tax Status though.
