Which bank or banks are best for investing directly into US stocks of your own choosing without having to go via an external brokerage like Schwab?

Does Citi allow you to invest directly into whatever US stocks you want? HSBC? Any others worthy of mention?

Citi is a US bank with local presence and brokerage arm. Of course, they will allow you to trade into US.

The other banks are DBS and Standard Chartered. They have brokerage arns too.

You can check Standard Chartered. Their commissions are lower for overseas stocks.

Many thanks, will give them a look - I assume it's DBS Vickers that I need to look into?

Should I also need to look at/invest in other markets like the UK for instance, which bank (with its own brokerage arm to keep things seamless and "in-house" in terms of funds transfers between normal accounts and brokerage accounts) would be best for currency conversions at minimal spreads?

I took a look at MU this morning - Current price is some 35% below the peak, suggesting that this stock my have entered bear territory. Short term moving averages such as 13,20 and 50 EMAs are sloping down in a down trend manner while 200 day SMA is flattish. However, I note a positive close on high volume which suggests that new buyers may be coming in and stemming the tide of selling. Short term stochastics has bottomed out and trying to make a bullish cross over. Quite tempted to catch a near term bottom bounce at current levels. Just looking for a very quick punt for 1 or 2 days and square out quickly.

DBS Vickers is the brokerage arm of DBS.

The thing is if you buy stocks through local banks, the FCY exchange spread is going to be wider. Commissions will be relatively higher too.

I think if you ask any other traders, they will say the direction is down for MU.

Yes, I think out 1 month, we may see more downside. I am just looking to catch that bounce from all the overselling. This is a very short term play which can last for as quick as 10 mins and not longer than 2 days.

never chase a stock at its 52 week high (and climbing).

It's fascinating to watch every night though.....
