    Hi guys,

    I'm currently trying to complete etax - any help would be much appreciated.

    Ive read all the ATO info.
    -according to them I am a 'share trader'

    my income from the year was $3k trading / $20k wages. [im a uni student]

    where should i put the trading income [in etax]
    - business income/ capital gains / other income

    also.
    -I have deductions of
    --trading software / trading books

    -are these a work related /self educated / other expense?

    [sorry if this post comes across as demanding]
    thanks guys,
