I'm interested in opening an account for US stocks. Some brokers popular here in China are: Sogotrade Firstrade Scottrade In my online search, I also got interested in TD Ameritrade. Can anyone give me some advice on which to choose? about their trading platforms, order execution, etc... By the way, is Sogotrade safe? Its website says it is a division of Wang Investments, but I cannot find any links to Sogotrade on the website of Wang Investments. No one wants to experience such case as MF Global Thanks for your advice and comments.
