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.

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.
