Wisers, I was wondering what would be the be the advantages and disadvantages of trading as a Business vs. Private? Currently, I have Individual Ameritrade Account, my account size is about $12,000. I trade in blocks of 2,000 shares (so about 2 stocks, average price $7). Volum is rougfly 15,000 shares a week. I have a full time job, decent pay (about $70K/year). If anyone can give any suggestion is much appreciated. I am following to see: -what are the tax benefits of trading as Biz -what expenses I can deduct (ie Internet connection, fees, et) Many thanks.
