Hello all. I've been looking for a direct access multinational type broker (such as Interactive Brokers) that allows trading in equities and/or futures in your markets or from where you live in foreign markets. I'm in the US and have been looking at markets in the mideast and south asia for some time now. I am wondering if there is a way for the small trader to access same. I prefer to stay away from mutual funds and ADRs of your companies that trade in the US. Geo. I am very pleased with IB by the way but American based traders are restricted in their access to certain markets for regulatory reasons.
