I am an American citizen married to a French national living in France.

I'm scouring the boards to find the best way to invest in stocks via a discount brokerage! I am currently trying to get signed up with Firstrade as Tradeking gave me a flat out 'No can do!".

I haven't been able to get an online form that works for me, not having a valid US address. I've heard of one guy who uses a friend's snail mail address - which I could technically do, but am a little worried about confusing (or!!!) the IRS.

Anyone out there who can give advice...I'm eager to get started!!!

Thanks a lot!
