BTX - what can you offset trading income against?

Hi All,

getting quite confused with what you can and can not see trading loss against?

In the example below they have set it against rental income?

I thought trading loss can only be set against trading income?
Property against property ?
capital losses against capital gains etc?

    Losses are my nemesis... but... Trading losses for the current year and when going back a year can be offset against the taxable total profit, then, when carried forward, are only set against trading profits. Capital losses can only be set against capital gains. Rental losses can be set against TTP. xx
