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

In Switz there are no taxes on capital gains. No one pays taxes on trading, and you're obviously allowed to manage your private finances while in Switz. If you have a work permit, you can try and register as a professional trader, then you will have to pay taxes but you'll also be eligible for tax rebates on your work-related expenses (transaction fees etc.).

Furthermore, I suppose your dividends are already taxed as regular income in the States, so by the US-CH fiscal treaties you're not taxed on that in Switz either.
Swiss residents must declare foreign assets and foreign dividends. These are relevant in calculating Swiss taxes. Any taxes paid elsewhere can be subsequently offset according to the clauses of the pertinent tax treaty.
