I want to buy shares of Swatch Group (the watchmaker).
I have a Tradeking and an MB Trading account.
On OTC, it is listed as SWGNF and on the Swiss Exchange it is UHRN.
What should I do?
The OTC stock seems to have extremely low liquidity (last trade was like 10 days ago) and it doesn't even seem to pay a dividend unlike the regular stock traded on the Swiss exchange.
If I buy 4 stocks (~100) and try to sell it in an year (hoping to keep it for far longer) then will I have trouble selling these shares.
I just want to know what the best/cheapest way is for me to buy shares of Swatch Group or any major foreign company for that matter.
