In my opinion, I feel that Tiger broker is the ideal for trading in both SG and US market.
For SG market wise, they charge a low 0.08%fee for stocks. For US market wise, they charge a minimum of 2usd for stocks unless you are buying in a very large volume. They are also regilated by MAS so there is a safety level when trading.
I feel that other brokers like Saxo and Fsmone charge a higher amount of commission which will eat into your profit.
TD Ameritrade and Firstrade - these brokers are commission free but they charge a withdrawal amount. For TDA, they charge a withdrawal of 25 usd and for Firstrade(not regulated by MAS), they charge a withdrawal of 50 usd. So in the long run if you are doing frequent trading, these are more ideal .
In conclusion, I find that Tiger is relatively easy to use and their fees wise are significantly low compared to other competitors.
