GreenTraderTax - Tax Treatment For Volatility Products Including ETNs September 12, 2017 12:00 ET

There are many different types of volatility-based financial products to trade, and tax treatment varies. For example, CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) futures are taxed as Section 1256 contracts with lower 60/40 MTM tax rates. The NYSE-traded SVXY is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) taxed as a security. The iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures (VXX) is an exchange-traded note (ETN), and while tax treatment is similar to an ETF, there is unique tax treatment on ETNs.

Join Robert A. Green, CPA of GreenTraderTax.com to learn tax treatment for volatility products including ETNs.

The ETN holder does not own the underlying instrument or index. In IRS jargon, an ETN is a prepaid executory contract or prepaid forward contract based on the relevant financial instrument or index. Report ETN income when realized as short-term and long-term capital gains and losses, except currency ETNs which are ordinary gain or loss treatment. Learn why there is no “substantial authority” for using Section 1256 on ETNs, including VXX.

1. Track how economic data and FOMC messaging have begun to shift
2. Consider how markets responded during previous rate hike examples
3. Lay out several scenarios for major asset classes which may play out in coming weeks.

qplum - How do you match up against the average US investor? October 5, 2017 12:00 ET

The U.S. investor doesn't invest only in the S&P500 index. Contrary to what real estate agents might tell you, the U.S. investor doesn't just invest it all in a house either.

In this webinar, we look at data publicly offered by the Federal Reserve and BLS to gauge what US households really invest in and how likely they are to invest in the near future. We will also discuss a trading strategy that uses this information about investors' behavior.
