W-8BEN form for Trading

Hi there,


As I'm opening an account at TD Ameritrade (US broker) I must fill the W-8BEN form since I'm a Swiss citizen living in CH.

I'm not really sure about part II line 10. Is there anything special I should specify like trading activity or should I leave it empty?


Thx

Why would you have a special rate of tax? Leave it blank
