Which Brokerages for which Products?
Forex, Bonds, Commodities
If you are trading forex or CFDs, most brokerages offer quite similar rates due to the competitive industry. Just make sure you pick a broker which is regulated by an established regulator, such as:
- UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
- Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC)
- Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)
I am currently using SamTradeFX (ASIC-regulated) for its wide range of products.
If you are based in the US, you can also use Interactive Brokers for forex and CFD trading, but I find it slightly less user-friendly.
Stocks, Stock Indices, ETFs, REITs
If you are looking to buy stocks/ETFs/REITs from around the world, or trade individual stocks actively, then I would recommend Interactive Brokers for its low commissions. If you are outside the US, you can also consider Saxo Markets.
If you are looking to buy or trade stocks/ETFs/REITs in the Singapore stock market only, then I would suggest Tiger Brokers or Moomoo.
If you are looking to trade stock indices for the short or medium-term, then I would suggest SamTradeFX to trade stock index CFDs.
If you are looking to buy and own cryptocurrencies directly, you can use a crypto brokerage such as Gemini. If you are looking to buy Altcoins, you can check out FTX Exchange.
If you don’t mind buying cryptocurrencies indirectly, you can buy crypto trusts or ETFs using Interactive Brokers or Saxo Markets for long-term investment.
If you are looking to trade the main cryptocurrencies to capture short or medium-term moves, then I would suggest SamTradeFX to trade crypto CFDs.
