Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Canadian futures trader fill out W8-BEN form

Hi,

I've submitted an application to a broker and as a Canadian, I've been requested to fill out a W8-BEN form. I want to know the following:

1) what is the (% rate of withholding...) I need to put down as a futures trader under Part 2 (Claim of Tax Treaty Benefits) question 10 Special rates and Conditions.

2) Also under what specific type of income will futures trading fall under ?

Thanks for any advice,

Mauri

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

@Liquid Trader

I am moving to Calgary this December and i trade American Futures (ES, CL, 6E)as well. Can you share your experience with me regarding choosing an American Broker and the tax formalities you need to fulfill? I have contacted Global Futures and IB. Global has higher than normal commissions and IB's data is not the best as i use tick and range charts.

Thanks
