Foreign trading

  1. I'm starting to grow bored at night and would like to look into trading (or scalping) a foreign market that's open in the evening (MST) - e.g., the Nikkei.

    However, for whatever reason, I'm just drawing a blank when it comes to thinking about how to research/go about it. Any suggestions?

    Sleeping usually breaks the boredom.
  4. I'm currently in Switzerland and SHOCKED at the trading fees brokerages charge here. I just talked to a UBS rep who told me that you can expect ~1% per transaction plus a stupid yearly "safe holding fee" of $50 + $10 per position. Compared to a discount brokerage in the US, these rates are about 50 times higher.

    Does anyone know of how to trade on foreign markets at a reasonable cost? Are there "discount brokers" so to speak?

    seems like a better to way to pass the time
  7. I see a combination play here, Asian trading + call girls = Asian call girls :D :D :D
