Capital-loss meaning

The cost of selling an investment for a price that is less than its purchase price. To be considered a capital loss, and not an ordinary loss, the investment must have been held for one year or longer. Capital losses can offset capital gains in order to reduce the amount of the taxpayer’s overall bill.
