you should ask your accountant to explain the advantages between long term gains vs short term and if you should open an IRA
Thx for making me aware, I'll ask him.


i wish thats the case by me.  i lost many tax credit for earning a few hundred bucks!

Hmmm, should I trade my BABA for S?...
If (and that's one big 'if') you're gonna end up making a profit off $S, it's going to be only after a very long and scary up and down ride.. not as fast and certainly not as smooth, as $BABA..
So I'd say only trade it if you really understand and most importantly believe in $S

if you buy and sell stocks shouldn't you understand the amount your making? if your gain was %20 but %15 goes to taxes...

15% of the 20% gain

i may have made the same mistake regarding the savers credit. don't have any losses to sell to offset. and had I just waited till 2015 it would have been better. actually that gives me a bit of a temptation to gamble on some earnings. if I win so more cash and if I lose I get my savers credit back. thanks for making me think about it!

Good! I just hope it's the same prayer I said while buying $AAPL @ $420.
