Best way to trade US securities? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,

    I was wondering which broker was best to use whilst trading on US markets? I know that Interactive Brokers offer a very low price on each trade, but is there anyone better?

    Also, I have heard about the hassles of trading in the US as a Briton. Is it true that we have to have a US bank hold our securities for us? Do we have to do anything like that or is the US broker the only financial institution we need to deal with?

    Thank you!
