Thank you so much. IWDA is in USD not in pounds/euro, how is the minimum fee calculated?

Possibly for fee calculation they refer to the USD value in EUR or GBP. I feel, if you are an ultra-longterm investor, as you should be, the buying fee should not be so relevant. If I would be living in Singapore I would choice Standard Chartered. I'm also sure that over time the fees generally will drop a lot because of competition. TD Ameritrade already charges 0.00 USD per trade of stocks/ETFs.
