I have not found a US online broker who dealt in shares not listed in American Stock Markets. Most will let customers buy ONLY shares listed in the US and
Canada.
If you do find one that allows trading on European shares in Europe, please let me know as I am deffinitely interested


Same here. There are lots of great companies all around the world, but most people (in the USA) are limited to what's on the NYSE or NASDAQ.

I'm sure that some of the major firms can set something up for you, but I doubt if any "discount" firms offer foreign trades.

I've gone through the same thing for years now. That's why I finally went to a local (European) bank to open an account. And that's a topic for another discussion (i.e. related fees, EXTRA fees, limitations...)

Let me know how things go for you,
Shifty
