Tiger Brokers Review: Best trading platform to invest in the Singapore, US and Hong Kong Stock Market

I have been using TDAmeritrade to invest since the beginning in the US market. When I decided to diversify across different stock exchanges, I switch from DBS Vickers to Tiger Brokers (a cheaper alternative). It is very hard to open an account with TDAmeritrade fast due to their $0 commission rates now. I have friends who used Tiger Brokers to invest in all markets (Singapore, US and Hong Kong Stock Market) as a result.

For myself, I used Tiger Brokers to invest in HK market and TD Ameritrade in the US market. One reason why it is not recommended to use invest in HK stocks in NYSE is because of the extra fees incurred ( stocks with ADR behind) and that it is a "holding company".

It took me a long time to decide which brokers to use, based on my needs.

  • Brokers who don't charge a custody fee
  • Reliable brokers with strong backing as I am a long term investor
  • Brokers that could attend to my calls. On this note, I find it very hard to connect with Tiger Brokers but their fees are really cheap in the markets and I am good with their interface. Also, it is super convenient to deposit my money and do an exchange rate conversion.

As a collaboration with Tiger Brokers, there is an exclusive promotion from my link here.
