I was recently advised my bank - HSBC - that I will no longer be permitted to transfer my money from my USA account to my account in my home country.

I was recently advised by my on-line share trading company - Firstrade -that they can no longer provide me with a share trading account because I live overseas. They will sell all my USA shares on the 15 March if I don't sell them beforehand.

Anyone have any advice about an alternate on-line share trading company to use that is able to provide a service for overseas clients?

Or maybe, because I am a foreigner and the banks - eg HSBC - have been behaving criminally in their dealings with foreigners, I am no longer able to have financial connections with the USA?

Best wishes
