Trading for a living & taxes in EU

Trading for a living & taxes in the Netherlands/Switzerland/Germany (and other EU states)

Are there any Dutch/Swiss/German traders here, who trade for a living ( for themselves, i.e., not as a trader for a trading firm or bank)?

If so, how have you arranged your taxes? Have you created an onshore, or perhaps even an offshore business entity, through which you trade?
Do you (still) pay ordinary income tax?
What are the options that are available, and from what level(s) of equity does it pay to go for construction ABC or go for construction XYZ?

Additionally, does it matter what you trade, tax wise? (For example, is there a fiscal difference between making a living trading cash forex, which is traded in the interbank market (so not in any specific country), and trading US stocks?)

If there's anyone who could shed some light on this matter, I would be very grateful.
