I have just bought a Stock Advisor subscription with the plans to get back into investing after some time away to regain my nerve after 9-11.I am a non-resident Canadian living abroad and my accountant back home recommended to find an offshore brokerage to start my stock buying again (i.e. non US/Canada) preferably in my local area, but as I am living in the Middle East, I don't see that as an option. I am a little nervous moving totally away from the North American market and feel a US based brokerage should be better than a Canadian based one tax wide (I used to have a Datex brokerage account, which later became Ameritrade before moving back to Canada in 2004 which necessitated moving all positions to Canada ;TD-Ameritrade). Does anyone know if there are any limitations to my opening an account in the US (I guess I could call a few to find out?) as all listed brokerages in the Motley Fool list say "Offers may be valid only in the US"?Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.
