Would recomment Interactive broker. Pros are that

  • Commission is dirt cheap

  • Reputable and they have survived a number financial crisis.

  • Access to almost every market in the world

  • FX conversion is done at spot rate

Cons are that it is an oversea broker. Support wise will not be as fast as local brokers

Saxo is pretty good for US market but they charge 0.12% custody fees. SCB can invest in more markets if you want to invest in more foreign stocks and not just US stocks.
