I hold a portfolio of stocks ( some were bought more than 1 yr ago). Now if I start trading in futures, to hedge and to speculate, will it change my stock investments to business income and attract 30% or can i continue to be an “investor” and follow the 15% stcg and 10% ltcg tax rate. And how will my futures income be treated ( from hedging and from speculation).
