I would like to know if it is possible to trade shares between markets to take advantage of price disparity and also exchange rates.
I am looking at shares that trade in several exchanges, where i would buy them in one exchange, transfer them to another exchange and sell them for a profit.
The aim is to eventually work it up to a point where i say buy Australian shares, transfer them to the NYSE, sell them, buy some shares there and transfer them back, to Australia, so i am getting a benefit whenever there is a transfer of funds.
Is there a single platform that will allow me to do this? in the past i have tried to open a US bank account and trading account, only to be told i would need to visit a branch. (they even offered to tell me where the closest one would be) would i need to set up bank and trading accounts in other countries.
Any advice is appreciated.
