I am now retired and have started trading FX from my home in Brisbane (Australia), I also own a small parcel of blue chip shares - would I be classified as a trader or an investor?
I work full time and supplement my income trading stock CFDs. So far in this financial year to date I have made around $20,000 how do I deal with this on my tax return?
I am an Australian but trade US futures, do I need to pay tax in the States and Australia, or neither?
