My wife is about to accept an offer for an ex-pat assignment from the US to Switzerland and I have a couple of questions in regards to my possible new career upon our relocation. I am considering becoming a "Day Trader" of equities, futures, etc.... and was wondering about any tax implications that may arise in Switzerland.

A few details......

I will be ONLY be trading my own funds.
I will be clearing trades through US brokerage firms.
I will continue to report all gains/losses on US tax returns.

Thanks for your help,

Just one question. Given that you are almost certainly doing this electronically how will the Swiss authorities possibly know? If you are not claiming a discounted tax rate in America it makes no logical sense to declare it?!
