GREENTRADERTAX TRADERS ASSOCIATION
We greatly appreciate your support in joining our Traders Association
by paying $50.
This is a business deduction for business traders because it’s an
ordinary and necessary expense for operating your business. For investors,
this is considered an investment expense. (It’s not a charitable
deduction, which is not as good a deduction as a business expense anyway.)
*We greatly appreciate if you wish to support us more by changing

you very much!
Membership dues will be used entirely to support the Traders Association
Why you should join us
Our Traders Association needs to be involved with the tax and
regulatory changes coming out of Washington D.C. The Bush tax cuts are
expiring and members of Congress are fiercely debating who to extend these
tax cuts for, and they want to extend many other tax breaks too. A lot
of tax policy is in play and traders don't want to be the ones paying
more taxes while others receive tax breaks, as recently happened with
new taxes on investment income in the health-care reform bill. Many in
the administration and Congress are demonizing traders and the financial
markets, calling the markets "casino capitalism." Are lower
60/40 tax rates on futures and electing forex sustainable? Can most trading
gains remain exempt from Medicare taxes? Is the qualifying dividend tax
rate going back to higher ordinary rates? Is trader tax status sustainable?
Can investment managers continue to fend off attempts by Congress to repeal
carried-interest and S-Corp SE tax breaks? Is Congress going to warm up
to a financial-transaction tax, which could put traders out of business?
There are many questions swirling around, and we need to be a player in
the game in order to get answers.
Regulators like the SEC and CFTC are charged with interpreting the significant
Dodd-Frank Fin Reg Bill. Our Traders Association needs to contribute to
the discussion so we don't wind up with the short-end of the stick - like
draconian 10:1 leverage on forex. $50 is a small price to pay to show
your support and join our cause. While many traders may be small in the
eyes of Congress and the IRS, we can have a respectable footprint by joining
forces. It's the same concept with unions - individual workers have little
clout but unions are frequent visitors to the White House. By the way,
unions are attacking traders too in their support of a financial-transaction
- Discounts on selective GreenTrader guides and services, including
a $25 discount on initial 30-minute consultations, $50 discount on entity
formation services, and $10 on guides, applicable on promotional or
regular prices. Access these offers inside our Traders
Association login section.
- We plan to invite other companies, including leading trading education
sites and brokerage firms, to team up with our Traders Association and
offer exclusive discounts or promotions to our members.
- Special conference calls for members only, perhaps scheduled on a
bi-weekly basis, including normally blacked-out dates before tax deadlines
like April 15, Sept. 15, Oct. 15, and year-end. It’s beneficial
for members to have exclusive access to Robert Green right before tax
deadlines, as well as throughout the year.
- Full access to podcasts and Webcasts. We continue to offer free conference
calls for everyone (including non-members), but the public has limited
access to prior podcast recordings.
Upon purchasing a membership to our association, you will receive a
PDF file containing a user name and password for the "Members-Only"
area, which grants access to our complete library of podcast recordings
How you can help
Invite others: Please invite other traders to join our Traders
Association. We need to have a strong membership to be successful. Please
share this email invitation via social media (Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter)
using the links at the bottom and kindly add your endorsement.
Board members: Kindly consider taking a more active role in our association
by taking on a board member role.
Sponsorships:We invite service providers, educational companies, brokerage
firms and ancillary companies in our trading industry to become sponsors
of our Traders Association. We invite sponsors to offer discounts on their
products and services to our members too.
If you are interested in helping us in these ways or any other ways,
email us at email@example.com.
From cost savings to community to protection, our association truly fights
for traders, and is possibly the only association of its kind. One thing
you can bank on: GreenTraderTax's mission is to help traders first
Like any other association, we're only as strong as our membership. Membership
growth brings more helpful voices and greater strength in negotiations
with providers and tax authorities. We need each member to spread the
word in chat rooms, message board communities, and with their brokerage
firms, friends and contacts.
Just picture a world where traders have clout in Washington with brokerage
firms, insurance companies, banks and much more. Continue to trade and
thrive as an individual, but join our association to have clout as the
“great trader class.” Brokers, banks and insurance companies
all groups to fight for them. Who fights for traders? Everyone knows Green
will fight for traders as he leads the Traders Association.
Thank you for your support.

Leader of the Traders Association

Subject: CFTC's FX Ruling on Leverage -- Thank You
Dear Green Company,
I'm sure you have read the CFTC's ruling that was published yesterday. The
proposed leverage change to 10:1 was revised to 50:1, which is far more
I just wanted to say, Thank You Very Much, for your help. The letter
campaign you guys initiated, no doubt, was a huge success. In a world of
scams and crooks, it's a real blessing to have a high quality, high
ethics, and highly effective company like Green Company on our side.
Again, Thank You!
