Our List Of Brokers Dealing In US Securities For The EU, UK, And Other Countries

Some of these do not actually trade on United States Options Exchanges (which you need access to in order to properly use our strategies) and are so noted.

Carefully check the securities and options exchanges that each broker participates in.

Many brokers that trade on USA Options exchanges also trade on US futures and commodities exchanges.

Also review pricing and costs: there may be additional fees for USA market data.

Interactive Brokers relies upon numerous independent “introducing brokers” in many countries (like Banxbroker and Lynx).
The customer of the introducing broker typically uses the Interactive Brokers platform, Traders Work Station (TWS), via the introducing broker, or the broker sets up a client-account-facing front end that makes use of the Interactive Brokers infrastructure and trading system.

German Brokers

As a German citizen, you would probably want to consider FlatexLynxDeGiro, BanxBrokerInteractiveBrokers, or TastyWorks
Please note: Lynx is an InternactiveBrokers reseller with higher commissions. If you don’t mind handling everything in English and don’t need German customer support go to Interactive Brokers — Although for option selling Tastyworks is even cheaper and accessible to German clients.
Because of that, you’re probably best off using InteractiveBrokers, or TastyWorks, but look around to see which brokers best fit you.
