Re: Short term capital gains taxes in switzerland

from a general consensus and buy-and-hold perspective, yeah you're right but i didn't want to confuse the issue too much. personally i don't look at it like income, i prefer to strictly look at as cost-basis-reduction on the stock purchase. in a best case scenario, sometimes you end up with a stock position essentially for no cost. a subtle difference, but a significant mental change when approaching a trade. And I would argue it that way if challenged by the tax man.

I see your point, but IMHO it is a bit of a stretch
Nevertheless I would really be interested in hearing the feedback you get from the tax man, so please keep me posted.
