Hi,

I'm a little new to this... but I'm potentially interested in purchasing a couple of Singapore-based companies. One is Asia Pacific Brewery (APBRF.PK), which was mentioned as a wild card selection in the July 2010 issue. I've been doing international trading through Fidelity, but they can't execute a trade for APBRF on the pink sheets. In fact, I can't find price and trading volume of APBRF pink sheets from any of my normal sources.

On the other hand, if I could get access directly to the Singapore exchange, it's easy to find the trading volume and pricing there. But Fidelity can't execute Singapore trades. And as far as I can tell, neither can some of the other favorite international brokerages (International Brokers, Etrade, Ameritrade) of GG members.

I'm also somewhat intersted in Breadtalk (BTKGF.PK) -- which trades at such low volumes in U.S. pink sheets that it seems crazy to do anything but buy directly in Singapore.

Any members with suggestions of what brokerages to try for trading in Singapore? Or is this just a fools erand?


Thanks!
J
