Re: Avoiding/reducing taxes

Set up a ROTH IRA.
All profits are tax free ....
Down side is, if you haven't got one your starting size is limited, other possibility is convert a traditional IRA to a ROTH. You will take a hit on the initial taxes but you'll be done with them after that.

Just a thought.

While I am not here very often and post even less I will give you an idea to do some testing with. Instead of trying to trade 24 hours, pick a market segment. Trade the London session open or the US session open or perhaps the crossover of the two. Do some testing and find the most volatile and liqu...

I have a MacBook Pro and I run fusion with windoz XP.... it runs great, far better than parallels. I can have both platforms open simultaneously, apple on one monitor and windoz on a second monitor, I have not noticed any speed loss or any other problems.

I think this is an excellent combination.

May was a very good month for me as well.
I use an uncluttered 2 MA crossover system that is a bit different than what you will find in TB.

I know this is a very old thread but hey I'm new here and thought this might be revived. So with that in mind I add, Van Tharps' book "Definitive Guide to Position Sizing" is a good resource for risk management study. Hi John, I am generally pretty skeptical of anything Van writes, but out of inter...

Hi Chris....

Have you read the book I mentioned?
