Rules preventing foreigners from trading US markets?

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by CutsThrough, Sep 26, 2006.

  1. Can someone provide me with info regarding if it's allowed for foreigners to trade the US markets.

    Example: Someone in India trading the US markets with a dollar-denominated account.

    I think anyone who is going to trade the US stock market should be a citizen or permanent resident or authorized to work in the US. I don't think the SEC will let anyone trade the markets regardless where the traders are.
    Someone please correct me if I am wrong..

    I was looking at some application materials of a prop trading firm and one of the documentation that I need to provide is a copy of the US passport or the green card or the work authorization.
  6. That is a lot different than just trading in the US markets!!!!


    I used to own controling interest in a US broker dealer.

    It is not a problem for MOST foreign nationals to trade the US markets.
