    I don't know where you are getting your information from but you are 100% incorrect. I have been doing this for over 35 years and trading losses on share trading can be offset against other income. It certainly doesn't apply only to professional traders or those who trade as a main source of income.
    Where are you getting this information from?
    Try giving your accountant a call. There are a number of ways you can substantiate your trading status and being a professional or having trading as your primary source of income isn't the only way. The volume of trades and how you have set up your business/trading plan determines your trading status not whether you have another job.
