    Is this a tax question? Country should be specified. – Chris W. Rea 2 days ago

FIFO or LIFO or by-lot has no impact or consequences if you use mark-to-market - all your investments are treated as fully “sold” as of Dec/31 for tax considerations.
It wouldn’t matter in which sequence you sell if you sell all of them.
