401 (K) - SEP - IRA Retirement Plans
Even if you are an individual with substantial trading profits, you will not be able to make any type of retirement contribution based upon those profits. You must have "earned income" and the IRS says trading profits are not earned income.
You must therefore have a separate business entity for your trading business, such as a corporation, in order to establish a retirement plan. Your corporate salary then becomes your earned income.
There are various options when it comes to selecting the right type of retirement plan. It is something that should be carefully considered and not hastily decided upon. It is not within the scope of this discussion is to provide complete information about retirement plans.
