written by reader Access to foreigh exchanges

By bartcreedon, January 30, 2012

Rather than trading via pink sheets, I am interested in trading directly on foreign exchanges for stocks that list there. I am looking at opening an account with Interactive Brokers (IB). Any thoughts, comments recommendations about IB or other possible platforms? I also was looking at E*Trade until I saw that you cannot access its global markets feature with an IRA account. I am looking to open an IRA account since I have most of my investable funds in one currently.
