1 Newbie Questions on Thu Mar 01, 2012 2:56 pm

Stock Trader
Hi all,

Got myself a Sierra act as I have a foreign passport.-

1. currently I am awaiting my Sri Lankan passport so that I can reclaim my Sri lankan citizenship - This may only be a few months away- ( maybe!!)
What would be involved for me to change accounts and then trade as a Sri Lankan once I purchase shares using the Sierra acct?

2. I am with Acuity brokers- do they provide any online tools for customer use? Is this available only after the first transaction.?

3. Do brokers charge any fees for non activity ?

Before starting internet trading, I phoned almost all the brokers who gave internet trading facility. Except Asia securities, other brokers need at least 100 000 initial deposit or portfolio value to give internet trading facility. They also said I can use my deposit to buy shares. Its the minimum portfolio value you must keep and its not extractly deposit. The most suitable word is minimum portfolio value.
Most of the brokers give internet trading facility to clients who fulfill their requirements. But I missed two or three broker companies.
