Trading US Stocks while in Switzerland ==> Owe Switzerland Taxes?

I opened a brokerage account in the US and started trading with it way before I arrived in Switzerland. Now I'm temporarily living in Switzerland for school and I continue to access this brokerage account via the Internet. If I make profits with the trades I execute while physically in Switzerland, will I owe taxes to the Swiss gov't? (Not easy making profits in today's market but let's say I get lucky..)
