3) Return is NOT the main goal of this approach.  The main goal is Risk Adjusted Return with minimal expense and maintenance.

how US brokerage work?

let take Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF @ USD82.17

if the brokerage is $0.01 commision per share, so I buy 10 share BND
Note: Note min brokerage fee is USD 0.01

USD82.17 x 100 =USD 821.70

Total cost + commision = USD 821.70 + $0.10 = USD 821.80 ?

Am I correct? Is there any other fee from gov?

I  am new to all this. Trying find out how to open a US account to buy ETF.

TD was mentioned by dreamer the TS , low maintenance fees suit me fine.

When i entered the TD website to open the account, i was stucked when asked about which account
to choose.  Option for individual - i think joint account would suit me.
Then there is option for a retirement account  - save for retirement 10 years later is my aim.
I didnt know  IRA only for US citizen,
For working malaysian paying 26% income tax here, which account would u recommend?

Let take Vanguard FTSE All Wd Ex US Small Cap ETF @ $110.28/share

I would suggest

1. If u trade less that 1000 unit of share go for PlaceTrade as commission is $0.01/share with minumum $1.5

2. merrilledge if trade more than 1000 unit of share

You are required by law to state the purpose of transfer for any sum above RM5,000.50 (five thousand ringgit and fifty sen).

The 'Purpose of Transfer' declaration is a compulsory Bank Negara Malaysia requirement for all foreign fund transfers exceeding RM5,000.50 (five thousand ringgit and fifty sen). This field is displayed only if the value of your transfer exceeds RM5,000.50.

By regulation, you will require prior approval from Bank Negara Malaysia for foreign currency transfers from resident to resident (i.e. someone residing overseas without PR status) except for education purposes.

For your protection, avoid sending identifying information, such as account, Social Security or card numbers to us or others. Further, do not send time-sensitive, action-oriented messages, such as transaction orders, fund transfer instructions, or check stop payments, as it is our policy not to accept such items electronically.

guy3288,

Come on.. If somebody tell you that you cannot open A/C using address from Malaysia, isn't it OBVIOUS that you should open A/C using address not from Malaysia.  For example, an address in USA??

Do not let education spoil your brain.  LEARN to THINK creatively.

Come on learn to think more deeper.

What if after u use the fake address then the brokerage need to verify your identity such as social security number? ID number? IC number?

Are you gonna fake that using Photoshop?

MNet,

<< What if after u use the fake address then the brokerage need to verify your identity such as social security number? ID number? IC number?>>

1) Why a person need to use FAKE address??

2) Did you ever try to open an A/C to begin with?? If NO, why do you THINK that they verify those things to begin with??  Or, they ask for those information to begin with??

<<Come on learn to think more deeper.>>

3) In all other countries, you can download the form or check online.  They tell you PRECISELY what you need to open an A/C. 

4) Ditto in all other countries, they tell you PRECISELY what information that they will verify and penalty in falsifying anything.

5) If you are INTERESTED, do your RESEARCH.

Why these "since inception" return is different?

Supposingly the iShares U.S. Healthcare Providers ETF will yield more higher % compare to Vanguard FTSE All-World ex-US Small-Cap ETF ?

Dreamer, any thoughts on Singapore STI ETF? It helps reduce local exposure and gives better regional/foreign exposure based on Singapore blue chip companies.
http://www.nikkoam.com.sg/etf/sti

With a standard chartered trading account, there are no minimum commission and brokerage fee of 0.2%.
It is more accessible with required investment amount of only SGD300~ per lot..

why select SG?
