https://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/taxes/capital-gains-tax-rates/ According to the link above, most people income bracket would make their capital gains tax rate at 15%. What happens if you make more money from trading than your normal job income , is your capital gain is still 15%? Actually, this wouldn't help me since I'm a daytrader. So I don't enjoy the long-term capital gains rate of 15% And short-term capital gains is taxed at your ordinary income rate. If your ordinary income bracket can still be in a lower income bracket than your net day trading gains right? Then you should still be taxed at your ordinary income braket right? just curious. I'm not there yet! Just thinking out... haha. LOL. Long way to go.
