Hey Guss,

There are tax advantages to trading in Canada. Trading is taxed at about half the percentage of a salary or interest on bank accounts. As an example, I paid 20% on my revenues from trading last year, wich is exceptional in this country.

Good luck,

One advantage is the investment protection plan. I was an MF Global client I received 100% of my account from the trustee . As far as I know US based clients are still waiting with little hope. I certainly hope they recover their money. All funds were accounted in Canada however there also is $1,000,000 insurance on futures accounts held in ontario . There are only a few brokers to choose from.
