Hi there, There are numerous big and well capitalized independent and bank owned brokers in the US but I can't find much here in the EU. I'm looking for one of these things: - A big independent brokerage firm that is well capitalized. By big I mean Fidelity or Charles Schwab big, here in the EU to trade EU equities and bonds. - An EU subsidiary of the largest US brokers (i.e. Fidelity, Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade, etc.) which accepts EUR deposits and allows us to trade on the EU stock markets. - A big European bank that has a brokerage arm and which allows residents from other EU countries to open an account with them remotely, over the internet. - Alternatively I'm interested in any bank owned brokerage company regardless where it is located if it is a large and well known bank and it offers remote account opening with their brokerage arm for EU residents and they offer trading on EU stock markets. Make this thread a collection of such brokers. Please add your favorite and consider adding the pros and cons of the one you recommend or don't recommend. Saxo Bank and Interactive Brokers should not be mentioned as I think everyone knows about them. I don't really trust Saxo since their Fx scandal and IB doesn't come close to the size of Fidelity, Charles Schwab or TD Ameritrade.
