    I'm looking to start trading my own account during evening hours (in California - PST) after work. I have been doing research and it seems that holding my account at IB gives me the most options for this.
    I'm just curious to see what others are currently using for trading Asian Markets (exchanges) from the states and what you like/dislike.

    Broker: (IB seems to be the best option for us here in the US..or is it?)

    Data feed: (IB?.. any other recommendations.)

    Contracts/currency: (HSI, SgxNK, N225m.. ?)
    ..and why?

    Charting ( ... might as well include this.)

    ** not looking for this to be a strategy post.

    I'm hoping this post will be a good source of info for those(newbies) with the same interest. Countless hours of research has allowed me to piece only this much info I'm a bond guy during the day. Thanks guys
