If the forex trading is an ongoing activity or source of income (or losses) for you then the loss will affect your ability to qualify for a mortgage. If the forex trading loss is a one-time event and not an ongoing activity then it should not factor into your income when you apply for a mortgage. Lenders review a borrower's tax returns for the prior two years when you submit your mortgage application. If the forex trading gain / loss appears on your tax returns in both years then lenders will factor it into your income. If the forex gain / loss only appears one year then the lender will likely not include it in determining your income. For a one-time forex loss, you may be required to provide a letter that explains the event and indicates that it only occurred once.
