Perhaps some of the professionals amongst us can address this. Are there any brokerage or brokerage affiliates that maintain customer accounts offshore? Can an foriegn national or ex-pat trade US equities, futures, or options from an offshore base? How would a foreign corporation or LLC be taxed on active trading profits? Anyone having information on active trading using a foriegn corporation, LLC or Bank as the front entity? Could for instance, a Citizen of...lets say the Netherland Antilles, who resides there, trade Naz securites, options and index futures contracts? I think you get my drift Just curious...for educational and discussion purposes only!
