I am not a live trader yet.

However, I do not see any problem transferring the money home.

The problem you need to concern more is the tax part.

I have searched the net for more info, on the tax part. Not finding a real answer yet. Probably need to go look for a good knowledgeable accountant who knows his/her stuff in regards to these kind of trading profit.

Local brokers will tell you that profit from trading futures locally are not taxable. I also read that

" Income Remitted from Outside Malaysia

With effect from the year of assessment 2004, income derived from outside Malaysia and received in Malaysia by a resident individual is exempted from tax."

The question is how do they define the terms derived from outside Malaysia?
Some say, you are trading from Malaysia. It's kind of a gray area I guess.

If the sum is not huge, and you still have a full-time job/business in Malaysia, and pay your regular taxes, I don't think it will be a problem. It's when you decided you're good enough to trade full time, and no longer hold a job/business that pay the taxes, you need to start to worry about the income tax dept.

I would also like to hear advice from live traders who remit money into the country, esp on the tax part.

Thank you.

Is there anyone here who live trades Bursa Malaysia FCPO using NinjaTrader? Could you share your experience, please? I'm currently using a different charting software but daily I experience significant lags in the charts (chart & ladder prices are different) during periods of heavy trades.
