I'm American, live in the US and trade US equities. NYSE, NASDAQ, ADR's, OTCBB, sometimes even pink sheets. I use the Power Etrade trading platform $10 a trade flat fee and real time charts using Stockcharts.
My Swedish wife of 33 years would like to move to Southern Sweden, ( she misses her sisters ). We lived in Stockholm for 7 years in the 80's so I'm familiar with the culture and speak Swedish.
I've searched for which brokers are available but need recommendations from experienced users if possible.
Etrade doesn't offer accounts to non US residents and they make it difficult to transfer money to an overseas bank. The US gov's new rules are too cumbersome for some companies to deal with.
Can anyone please recommend a broker similar to Etrade that can be used if living in Sweden. My preferences are :
Real time transaction log ( some call this the trade streamer )
low commissions ( preferably a fixed rate per trade)
Account in USD and/or EUR
US tax documentation ( 1099's etc. )
Swedish Tax documentation
I'm probably forgetting some things but the intent is to discover if it's possible to relocate to Sweden and be able to continue making a living trading US equities.
So far I read about Avanza, Interactive Brokers, Netfonds, Saxo and I saw TD Direct Investing but their site locked up.
