Hi Susan,

I can't answer your question very well, having only helped foreign guests open US accounts (not the reverse) but usually it is a huge pain in the neck to buy through international markets, including opening accounts with foreign brokers, exchanging currency, different trading times and rules, and tax issues.

However, at first glance it appears Vestas Wind Systems only trades on the Pink Sheets here in the US, and that lends its own special problems. There is a ticker VWS listed on the NasdaqGS according to Yahoo, but it doesn't trade. (e.g. Etrade doesn't recognized it) Maybe it will soon? A question for Vestas' investors relations dept.
