Trading Japanese Market

  1. Does anyone know how one can get invoolved in trading the Japanese stock market in America or is anyone doing it? I saw IB gives access to it but I bet it costs a pretty penny to do so.
     
  2. American depository receipts

  4. Well, the US allows the rest of the world to trade US markets, WHY doesn't the rest of the world make it as simple/easy to trade THEIR markets? Especially countries like Japan, China/Hong Kong, Australia and others.

    No, ADR's or some etf are not even close. They're US traded, after all. I'm talkin' access to their brokers/exchanges without bullshit restrictions or sky-high commissions. And I don't mean the manipulated futures crap, either. Stocks!

    We'll have it before the end of the year. Rates will not be as low as US equities, however, I doubt you will find it cheaper anywhere else. We'll be in the same ball park as the cheapest Japanese brokers - which tend to only accept Japanese residents and do not have English websites or trading platforms.
     
  6. Is there a stamp tax on Japanese shares?
