I have accounts with a few brokers and none trade the products that I want. It seems it’s extremely difficult to get a retail platform in the UK that trades what I want (or perhaps impossible).
For what it’s worth, the stocks I am interested in are mostly traded as depository shares on the Frankfurt exchange, which seems to be the best in Europe for what I want. This seems pretty normal for most brokers dealing in foreign stocks. You’ll see a ton of Kazakh/Chinese/Indonesian/Indian companies listed on the exchange if you go to the official website, but your broker might only offer the top 25% as tradeable.
There are tons of brokers which allow you to trade on the Frankfurt Exchange, however, none allow me to buy the obscure things I want to buy.
Does anyone with more experience know what I would have to do to get the ability to trade these? They’re illiquid, but clearly being traded domestically since the prices are moving daily.
