    I am very much interested into investing in the US Stock Market as well, and I have explored some options on Brokers that would enable me to do this. Unfortunately there seems to be not much information regarding this, especially a comparison of different brokers. I am looking for one that is beginner friendly. Has anyone had any experience with this?

    I don't plan on using a broker, however, I would recommend just trading online with a trading service. I would recommend using Scottrade or TD Ameritrade.

    Thanks for this information, I have been searching for an international broker/trading service and I hope this does help. I will check this out and post if I have any success with it. I've quickly browsed through the fees and Scottrade looks a little pricey. TD Ameritrade doesn't show much of it's pricing but I'll get into that further. So far, I feel a little optimistic about these two sites, I hope they can do me a good job!

    I use interactive brokers. (IB) amazing amount of different markets and very low commissions, however it's quite a complicated system and takes time to learn.

    I was just planning to ask this question so thanks for providing a specific broker crimsonghost! Just looked them up and they seem solid. But I haven't seen how complicated yet so hopefully, they're in a learning curve I can manage, haha.

    Thanks again!

    You're welcome! Just make sure that you understand the small print with IB as they have quite a lot of important stuff there such as minimum deposits, monthly fees, extra services etc.

    A brokers name is crimsonghost? I can pick out Ghost form that statement. I hope one day they don't ghost traders money:D. I am stuck with Forexchief broker for now. i registered here because I saw a thread about the broker here and want to connect with the thread opener.

    I searched, I did not find such broker. Forexchief is regulated lightly but they are a nice broker.
