  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Traders in Sweden - Which Broker ?

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 :

US Equities
Real time transaction log ( some call this the trade streamer )
lvl 2
fast execution
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.

Any advise or recommendations are appreciated.

Futures Edge on FIO
I have been trading from Finland (because of my wife too) through Interactive Br with no problems at all. IB is definitely better than your current broker, you won't regret the move.

If she is 33 now, back in the eighties you must have been babysitting her!
