Ethereum Classic is an open, decentralized, and permissionless public blockchain, that aims to fulfill the original promise of Ethereum, as a platform where smart contracts are free from third-party interference. ETC prioritizes trust-minimization, network security, and integrity.

DEW will remove the week contracts temporarily and reschedule the stock contract and forex contract products.

Dear users, As many new derivative products were or will be launched, the volume of users trading on DEW is growing. However, some problems are also exposed. For example, liquidity and trading depth of futures contracts-- especially long-period contracts-- are not enough, so the prices are easily controlled without perfect protection mechanism. Abnormal fluctuations causing losses have been found recently. To protect investors as much as possible, we made such deliberate decisions: 1) Suspend week contracts temporarily from next week; 2) Reschedule the stock contract and forex contract; 3) Slow down the pace of launching new products. To launch excellent products, we will take the initiative to slow down the iteration and allow enough time to improve all aspects of the futures contracts. We will lay a solid foundation as the premise of making steady progress. For further information, please notice the follow-up announcements.
Thanks for your support! DEW team 29 Apr, 2018

Can spot forex traders use Sec 1256 contract?

I've read a lot of material on the website Greentradertax but i wanted to see if i could get more insight on this matter here. This is where i am deriving most of my info from.
"By default, forex spot and forward contracts have Section 988 ordinary gain or loss treatment. Traders holding these forex contracts as capital assets may file an internal contemporaneous “capital gains election” pursuant to IRC § 988(a)(1)(B) to opt out of section 988 and into capital gains and loss treatment. If such an election is made, then for forex forwards — and forward-like forex contracts, including spot forex in some cases — taxpayers may use Section 1256(g) (foreign currency contract) treatment, providing it’s in major currencies for which regulated futures contracts trade on U.S. futures exchanges, and the taxpayer does not take or make delivery of the underlying currency"
My current broker is oanda and i know they do not release any tax forms to you. I will have to use my account statement to report my taxes.
So... Can a spot Forex trader opt out of Sec988 and elect for Sec 1256 tax treatment? If so how do i do this?

How to calculate capital gains/losses on FOREX CFDs?

Hi, I trade forex contracts for difference (CFD). So, I don't buy or sell foreign currencies, I buy and sell contracts that have FX prices as an underlying. There is no ownership of real currencies. Do I need to report capital gains/losses the same as for foreign currencies (convert the proceeds of disposition to Canadian dollars and convert the adjusted cost base of the property to Canadian dollars)?

Best way to hedge against currency risks as a European?

Alright folks. I know absolutely nothing about the topic, or FOREX. As you've noticed, EURUSD is going crazy, which is decimating my portfolio.
So, in the future I will hedge. What is the best way to hedge? I've heard about ETFs, but those include fees so what's the point? I've also heard of "long term forex contracts", what are those?
Ideally I would need something long-term (I only invest to hold several years at least), with little to no fees. But the it ruins the point. One last thing is I would need leverage: indeed, if I block as much capital as I am using to buy shares in order to hedge equally, there would be little point since that would reduce my ability to invest.
One last issue is that the ETFs I've seen are in USD, but my currency is EUR, so there would be no point buying those as the exchange rate variation would basically negate the gain or loss from that ETF.
Damn currencies... what a mess. I have a feeling that what I'm asking for doesn't exist at low fees. I'm wondering if I should just not care and not bother hedging and over a lifetime of buying at different times it will just hedge itself naturally... since I hold for several years anyway

Musings about the stock market

Just my thoughts about the market.... Inspired by the late David Elliot aka FirstWave.
A video of 20 minutes of me rambling about the stock market.
I'm considering doing more of these videos, but really don't know if there are many people that would be interested in them. This video is a broad overview of the market in a longer term sense, but I can do intraday analysis as well and look at shorter term trade opportunities. In this video I only talk about the S&P 500. If anybody has any interest in more specific content, let me know. I can look at pretty much any index, stock, futures contract, or forex contract. Please like and subscribe to my youtube channel if you're interested so I know to post more stuff. If nobody is interested, then I'm not going to pollute the internet with more of my blabbering.
About myself... I studied David Elliot's trading method meticulously before he passed away. He used to have a chat room on the thinkorswim platform, and also had a private live trade room during the day where he mentored students. David was passionate about the market and provided tons of free mentoring to the world in regards to technical analysis. I had the privilege of being in his trade room and following his trades in real time for a couple months and learned quite a bit from him. I want to carry on his tradition of sharing knowledge about the market and cultivating a group of like minded technical traders. He used proprietary indicators, some of which are available for free through thinkorswim. I use some of those as well as his "Hinge" indicator which isn't widely available. My goal is to post daily market reviews for a broad subscriber base and - optimistically - I would like to host a live trade room where we trade futures and / or options.

Cryptocurrency - Foreign Exchange Contract for Difference IRS Tax Treatment

Suppose I buy 1 bitcoin at $1000.00. The price is stable for the day. I transfer it to an offshore exchange like SimpleFX which does its accounting in bitcoin. It doesn't report anything to the IRS or provide year-end forms.
I make two CFD trades. Buy ETHUSD CFD (i.e. a crypto contract for difference) Buy USDJPY CFD (i.e. a pure forex contract for difference)
Both lose 0.25 bitcoins, for a total loss on the day of 0.5 bitcoins. I cash out my remaining 0.5 bitcoins at $1000 per BTC. I have lost $500 that day in trading, incurring no capital gain or loss on the underlying crypto-asset.
I have not declared trader status.
If I had made the USDJPY play by depositing any "real" currency, I would simply report the loss on line 21. Forex is ordinary income. Can I do the same by converting the 0.25 bitcoin loss to dollars ($250) at the spot price at close?
With respect to the ETHUSD crypto-cfd, should that be treated the same way?
