Not true for all platforms - For example, DBS charges clients 0.20% or a min. of S$100 per half-year for each foreign shareholding/market. So, if you have stocks in US and HK at any time during the half-year, you will be charged a min. of S$200 per half-yearly. Quite excessive - so, be careful. Better to trade elsewhere if you want to trade foreign stocks.
Yes, there will be no custody fees! Just wanna add on to the comment about dividend handling fees - I think the majority of all the other Brokers charge dividend handling fees on all stock markets while FSMOne only charges for US market.
Yes but there are dividend handling fees for US market which can eat up alot of ur returns if you are starting small and focus on dividends.
