For tax purposes, can one say they are in the business of stock trading when the only stock traded is that bought and sold for themselves and can they then consider any gains/losses and dividends to be self-employment income? If not, why is this different from a "little guy" buying items from a wholesaler, selling it in the retail market,and then claiming this as a business? If it can be done, does the person need to be a licensed broker?
