    Default I'm no Tax expert

    As I was investing in shares and buying and selling before my accountant talked me into the structure ..I'm not expert but it seemed a smart move .... the bases of my company is as a trading entity ... anything the company buys it plans to sell in the short-mid term for a profit
    recently I purchased two sections of land claimed the GST then sold them 1yr later for a tidy profit ....will pay the GST on the total sale in october ....but in the meantime those funds are invested in the S/M ...

    I'm also buying a small vending business which will be added into the structure >>buys products to sell

    I don't think it gives me a much lower Tax saving compared to being a sole trader paying tax at my personal rates....(which over the years would have worked out much the same if not higher)

    For me it's also the redirection of the risk from you as an individual (when operating as a sole trader) to the company. A limited liability company is a legal entity in its own right. It can hold property in its own name, can sue and be sued and has an indefinite existence (unless forcefully brought to an end). A Company allows shareholders to limit their maximum possible liability for the debts of that company to the amount of the paid capital in the company...

    And I guess on ones Ego driven side as a company you own the name of your company ..so if you're a brilliant trading and continuing make profits over the years then the banks will respect the company and lead you funds on the back of the company's record and capital ....you of course could sell shares in the company to other investors etc

    My goal of course was to take "My company" to that stage .. where I could give up the day job and continue as the sole director (with wife as company sec of course with her 10%)

    Sorry Mickey, I don't. It would be nice if it will be made available to us here soon too. We can start asking them once it's available to those in Oz.

    Using a company setup takes you away from using a more simple cash basis and having to account for unrealised gains/losses on shares and FX.

    Good in that it can avoid tainting on longer term investments, or those you wish to hold in a different name.

    Interesting how different people think with there trading strategies, i'm not too far from you JBMURC, over the years we seem to end up in the same companies.

    One old rule i had was holding 5 companies max, research the fundamentals, look for undervalued assets, negative EV, mgmt with skin in the game, well funded, no debt etc

    Now i see various non resource companies and buy in if the fundamentals stack up, and end up selling soon as anything changes, or buying more on weakness.

    Disc; holding 6 stocks at mo and a small holding in TRT via in specie distribution from TNG.
    Disc holding - AUC, AZY, CHN, CZI, GOR, MDR, NMT,

    Cool Timing ...Farming a trade ....got to be there on open

    Yes shasta great minds think alike >>

    Another lesson >>On Trading strategies >>FARMING a Trade

    .1#..Farming a trade(scalping) = intraday/swing trading .....

    Now farming a trade is where I like the company but I believe I can take the profit during the day usually around open and buy back in lower again later in the day or maybe the next >>

    -Doesn't always work >> but end of the day if your target is say $700-$1000 profit for only days holding it's not the end of the world if you miss out on another couple of %.... >>>

    This week alone I've missed out on two great intraday trades .

    .... RLE going from mid 8's to over 10c to then back to 9c
    ....RSG from the 1.04 to 1.09 today ....

    Both times be away having lunch with family >> always the F'n way!!

    Now the above trades may not seem that exciting ...But had I been in front of my screen instead of away
    I would have made $4500 from the 50k invested and best of all I would have been back into the same companies to do it all again fornot much more than I originally paid>>>>

    This is why I love trading over investing >>

    and yes I'm pissed about missing the trades

    I use to only hold x4-x6 shares and for a good amount of time sometimes only x3.(Main because my trading went stale couldn't be stuffed etc)..... but very recently I was finding with the huge amount of study I was coming across so many great companies with my targeted short term 100%++pa upside that I decided why not spread the risk ...

    So my new set range is min 8 to 12 max ...(will see how this plays out for me.. so far so good)

    .In the past I had been hurt by one or two high risk high growth specs being crushed by insider trading or announcment >>
    ----- I just wasn't keep a close enough eye on because of my work >>>even though at times I was only invested in 3-4 companies
    when you're away from the net at SEA for several days at a time with maybe couple tired hrs free before heading away again..

    Yes I have tried stop-losses to find I was stopped out for an intra-week lows when I got back days later ggrrr ..(IMHO stop-losses aren't really suitable to the micro-cap sectors but are fine for the bigger end of town with higher volume trading >>)

    If you don't have the time to put solid 20hrs+ per week every week don't become a ShareTrading ...(Well in my experience of keeping your trading mojo flowing>>In a busy week I'll spend 50hrs+

    Thanks for the thread....I have got a wee bit bored so have broken my rules. My rule break has been inspired by the CEO of the Qatar Investment Authority (I attended a talk by the man), who said that you have to reassess your strategy on a regular basis. As a result, I have decided to try (on the Nz market because it is so slow and pays dividends if I get it wrong) a small 10K trade to see if I can generate a $100 profit. Of course I am not affected by tax but I will clearly be hit by the trade fees. I have selected SPK based on TA and FA, loaded the trade at 3.30am my time, it went through so I am hoping that over a short hold I may be able to hit my target profit (needs around an 8 cent rise though). If it doesn't work, then it pays a handsome dividend! Note: my attempts at trades in the past have been abysmal!
