There is no such animal as a short term capital gain or loss... When you hold the stock for a year or more it is treated as capital and the tax rate on your realized gains is (currently) 15%. If you sell out and had held for less than a year, your gain or loss is netted together with other ordinary income such as the pay you get from a regular job, and is subject to the same tax rates as for your regular paycheck.
