Capital gains taxation after departing Switzerland


I'm currently living in Switzerland, but I plan to permanently leave this year and become tax resident of another country. I also invest in stocks as a private individual.

If I leave Switzerland in February, no longer being a Swiss tax resident, and if I sell stocks in March in a way that would normally force me to pay capital gains tax ("Kreisschreiben Nr. 36 Gewerbsmässiger Wertschriftenhandel"), would I still have to pay taxes for the capital gains that occurred in March?

I assume the answer is no because as a "professional investor", the capital gains would become my sole income, and that income would have been received when I'm no longer a Swiss tax resident, but this is just a guess based on the assumption that I don't have to pay Swiss taxes on income earned abroad while I'm no longer a Swiss resident.
