They're too expensive for US stocks. $20 USD per trade is way too much to pay.

If you're specifically punting US stocks (don't forget ye olde dividende withholdinge taxe), you'll want to look at the US-based brokers. Interactive Brokers is the obvious pick because of the rock-bottom commissions and margin rates, but I think ETrade and TD Ameritrade have presence in Singapore as well.

i use Lim Tan and Standared Chartered for local stocks

i have tried to use IB a few years back but the platform is quite confusing... i intend to trade small amount and am looking at local banks (although commission is higher than foreign brokers).. but am unsure which one is the better one

Interactive Brokers - SGD now available for funding
