End of the Year Tax Deductions For Traders and Businesses

Stock Tickers

ETFC IBKR AMTD SCHW SPY UNG

Here we are, December 1st, 2015 and we have one month to find last-minute tax deductions. If you're not already thinking of ways to save on your taxes, you better get going.

If you're self employed and don't have employees (including sole proprietorship with earned income, S corporation , and LLCs taxed as S corporation or sole proprietorship), you still have time to create a Solo 401K. As long as you create it by the end of the year, you have options to fund it even into next year. There's lots of rules involved and it goes beyond the scope of this piece, but it's one of the best ways to park money into retirement account if you qualify.

GE DIA SPY IBKR

One of the original stock market operators that understood the mechanics of how the market prices stocks was Charles Dow and in his forward-thinking mind, created the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 1896.

Charles Dow (pictured here with the beard) understood and illustrated that by creating an index basket of stocks, anyone could get an accurate overall sense of the market and economy at a glance. Over 100 years later, investors, the media, and professionals use market averages to measure the stock market and the performance in relation to their own returns and the economy in general. 

Dow started his famous average with 12 companies that included the following:

American Cotton Oil

American Sugar

American Tobacco

Chicago Gas

Distilling & Cattle Feeding

United States Is Moving Away From Defined Benefit Plans and It Can't Happen Fast Enough

Stock Tickers

 I have one word for defined benefit plans -  "Enron", “Detroit”, and "good riddance". Ok, maybe that’s three, or four words, but who’s counting? The fact remains that the current trend of moving away from defined benefit plans is a good thing just about any way you slice it from my seat.

Some may claim that defined benefits encourage loyalty and stability for employees, but that’s only in theory. In practice, the economy changes, businesses fail, and nothing remains the same regardless of how much we want it to. Believing nothing can change during one’s career is filled with much more peril than one can imagine.
