On their website, I noticed Friedberg mentions self directed online accounts, but the link is empty. It does look like working with them would be expensive. Hong Kong is not completely bereft of futures broker, besides IB, ADM Investors Services has a local branch and the american parent company seems quite reputable. But it's 30usd round trip online !
I'm also looking for a competitive broker, in terms of price and preferably execution.
Also the wire and intermediary bank fees are serious issues if using too many accounts, hence I'd still prefer a multiplatform broker, offering futures but also equities and options, and I'm having a really hard time finding those outside the US (with good rates)
For those who might feel concerned, note that IB and Etrade offer very cheap to free funding possibilities from HK (but Etrade only offers part of the products it offers US investors - no global markets nor futures for instance).
