I would like to invest in S&P500, but after googling and asking around I'm still quite uncertain. Looking to deposit around $500/month into a ETF. Any advice?

Should I use local brokerage (SCB was recommended to invest in IWDA? FSMone looks nice to me) or international brokerage (first trade has $0 commission, Kristal AI has free trade for first $50k, IB is quite pricey at $10/month)
