Just wanting to refresh the timeline on this topic. In what I have read so far there have been people similar to myself that are physically based in Japan, but those threads are a few years old now.
I'm an Aussie in Japan and looking to start trading (stocks). Specifically interested in Aus/Jpn/US, maybe even Vietnam...I've been wracking my brains senseless trying to determine with whom to trade. Although not a huge amount, I should be able to cover the minimal requirements for IB/TradeStation, but unsure if they are what I want.
Is anyone using anything else? A mate of mine is using BOOM out of HKG, though even they are part of the Monex group (so too is TS), the Monex office here in Tokyo only offers US and China as foreign markets for trading....
I'm a tech trader (from the FX days) and prefer decent charts. I saw a comment from Soultrader on his price action thread where TS were a bit slow on the execution.
It's now 2014, so just want to know if anyone else is in a similar situation, and what the latest feedback is on some of the options out there!
Cheers in advance.
