Many of our readers and friends are making a quiet and comfortable living through online trading…some more quietly and more comfortably than others.

In this new series of “How-To” Guides we will teach you the techniques of the most successful people we know.

Whether you want to be an active day trader or simply maintain full control of your passive investments in a private, offshore and tax-free environment, there are good solutions out there which will meet your needs.

Unquestionably, the best way to benefit from offshore trading is to be offshore yourself. To disappear effectively from the records of your home country’s government, buy or rent a desirable home in a country with lower living costs, hook up to the internet and an online trading account, and there you have it!

Action Point: Q Wealth Members have access to the full 2014 Second Citizenship Report…a vital guide to “offshoring” yourself. 

If your circumstances don’t allow you to ‘disappear’ just yet, there are still ways you can send your wealth offshore and let it accumulate tax-free.

Step 1:

The first and most basic step is to form an offshore company through which to operate.

That way, you don’t have to do any offshore business in your own name.

While it’s true that there maybe some tax advantages in using offshore companies as owners of broker trading accounts, the instant benefit we are after here is access to the many opportunities that can be closed to an individual or citizens of some countries.

Another benefit is that brokers typically treat institutional accounts with more attention and respect. In a way, it means that the trader “graduated” from a personal, retail account to the next level – owning a trading company.

You don’t need anything particularly sophisticated here – just an offshore company from a respectable jurisdiction which can be incorporated for under $2000.

Depending on your personal circumstances and goals, there are various ‘optional extras’ which may or may not be useful, and can be used to increase levels of privacy.

Step 2: 

A secure encrypted internet connection via an offshore proxy server is highly recommended for anybody who values their privacy.This allows you to connect to your online bank or broker from anywhere in the world – with two big differences.

First, it prevents the authorities, or anyone else for that matter, in the country where you are physically located from monitoring your internet connection and snooping on your online activity.

Secondly, it prevents your bank/broker from tracking your physical location via IP address – after all, I can see no legitimate reason why your bank needs to track where you are at any given time.

You’ve nothing to hide, but then you’ve nothing to shout about either.

There’s a third advantage to using a proxy server too – your online account can be secured by limiting access to just one fixed IP address, which can be that of your proxy.

This is the kind of security banks use between themselves, but is impractical for most home users because you are allocated a different IP address each time you log on. So the proxy adds to your online security.

Step 3:
How to choose the right bank.  A regular bank account is pretty much a necessity for any company and can be used as a passthrough for moving funds in and out of the brokerage account.  You can also order a debit or credit card for easy access to your funds.
 
This should be a secure and efficient bank in a respectable jurisdiction, but outside your home country. 
 
If you’re not the travelling type, then you need to find a bank which will open the account by mail. Whilst there’s technically no minimum deposit or balance in many of our recommended banks you should reckon on keeping around $10,000 or equivalent in the current account. 
 
Besides keeping the bankers happy, these funds will be available to you via the plastic in case you need access to your funds in a hurry.
 
The 2014 Practical Offshore Banking Guide was written, as the title suggests, to provide you a source from which to make decisions that otherwise would prove difficult.
 
Detailed reviews and contact information have been included for more than 25 banks, brokerages and financial institutions…including those with brokerage accounts.
 
We’ll tell you which to contact depending on the kind of account you need and what your banking requirements are.  
 
 

By putting all 3 steps in place you’ll be set up to trade in highly private, secure and efficient manner.  The only thing left to do is actually trade!

Here is how I’ve been trading for nearly a year now.
