Re: Low cost Investment Funds in Switzerland

At least three forum members (kiwiguy08-fatmanfilms-SwissIT) already suggested that the best option is to go for a US broker.
I will ask them or anybody who knows the following question:
If you invest with your US broker 100000 and at the end of the year you made a 10% profit so you have 110000.
How much the US will take from those 10000 profits in taxes? (Supposing that you are a Swiss resident?).

I am obviously trying to compare with Switzerland where in principle if you have 1 fund or ETF for 1 year and make a 10% profit you pay NO taxes.

(I know that nobody trades like this, but I am trying to make myself and idea of how much tax do you pay on your US brokerage account)

If you can indicate where the rules for taxes on US investments from Switzerland are explained I will appreciate it.
