Does anyone know if I may be able to open a brokerage account in the united states but living in Australia, to use in trading.

  • Are you a US resident or an Australian Resident? What is your actual situation? You may need to provide a lot more details if you want an accurate answer. As a lot of brokerage accounts in Australia allow you to trade US and other international shares and other markets. – user9822 Sep 6 '15 at 21:05

  • Is there something you can't trade with an Australian broker? – Chris W. Rea Nov 5 '15 at 14:39
  • I'm just worried about the conversion rate and or Hedge my fund. – LanzOluz Apr 17 '16 at 22:16

At some places yes, at others, no.

As noted in the article, I've heard [more] recently that TD Ameritrade will open accounts for non-US residents, probably excluding countries where they have separate sites, as long as the prospective client has the funds to put in the account.
