@journeyman1604 Hi Ross, thanks for replying. I have tried Interactive as they are part of TD Direct Investors, but stated they do not trade OTC / Penny stocks. If you think it's anything different it may be worth me getting back in touch. Looked at Trade Station thanks, the minimum fund is a little to high for me. Funnily enough last night I did manage to register with Suretrader, heard mixed reviews about them but at this stage I am willing to give it a try. If I find anymore or have any other success I'll let you know. All the best Nigel

Hi Nigel, Hope alls going well in the challenge so far. Just wondered if you had any success finding a broker yet?. I have an account with interactive brokers but am interested to hear if you found any of the ones we discussed on here previously to be any good. Hope alls well mate. Ross

Hi Ross, Good to hear from you. Challenge going well, concentrating on lots of study ! how about you ? I am using Suretrader, lots of people have warned me about them so once I have built up my fund I will transfer to another broker, having said that I'll also keep the Suretrader account as a back up. One good thing with them is the PDT rule does not apply as they operate outside the US. Interactive is one I would like to use, how do you find them ? All the best mate, Nigel

Yeah same for me mate. Currently away working in west africa offshore, so more time to study and less time to trade which has been good. I was looking at suretrader as the thought of getting around the PDT appeals! I might take a look at opening an account with them when i get home next week. IB seem good but have only paper traded with them so far. It is a much more complicated platform to use than some of the others ive seen so paper trading first has been good for me in order to get used to i

@nigeldpotter Hi Nigel, Thanks for making contact. Yes its not easy finding a decent broker for trading US markets and having the option to short stocks. I have struggled also but have now got a individual broker account with interactive investors and am also looking at trade station as they also do an account for international clients. They have contacted me today directly and emailed me the application form which must be printed and scanned back to them. I believe Trade also used to do this but having contacted them direct it seems they have stopped taking international clients for the time being. I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any success finding one. Ross
