Entity Trading Account

A trading account that belongs to a legal entity such as a corporation or limited partnership. There are certain advantages to entity trading accounts over individual trading accounts, such as tax deductions and certainty in tax law.

An entity trading account needs one or more persons with authority to trade in the account. Such persons should be competent and honest traders in order to avoid losses in the account arising from poor trading decisions or unscrupulous behavior.
