My dad is a day trader and has been for about 5 years now. He feels he's gotten good enough to start trading an account with my money in it. So far, so good for 2014, but there's a long way to go.
I'm sure a few of you have investments, so I'd like your input. CC applications / CLI request forms let you include investment income in your reported income. But to state the obvious, investment income is not constant and reliable the way a paycheck is. My guess is that if your previous year's tax return shows the income you reported, they're not going to call you a liar and close your account. Still, what do you guys think? I tried google and couldn't find a good answer.
