Question: I am a full-time trader and technically I have no earned income. I make about 100,000 in short term gains a year and live off that. Is there a way I can still contribute to retirement????

Nope...not if your reporting your gains on Sch D and your expenses on Sch C.

You should check out the Fairmark tax site for additional information on trading taxes.
