Changing my broker Any ecommendations

Hi I am a UK citizen, currently trade on the Canadian exchange via Lloyd's TSB bank Sharedealing but they are rubbish, cant place stop loss and limit orders. Anyone able to recommend a company that accepts non Canadian/ USA resident? Thanks

Try TD Waterhouse in Canada: www.tdwaterhouse.ca. A discount broker that I've been using for a long time.

If for some reason they won't take you, try Investors Europe in Gibraltar: www.investorseurope.com.

Interactive Brokers

Interactive Brokers is the best I have used (from my limited experience with different brokers - etrade, scwab, and vanguard). I'm not a trader by any means, I think my average holding period for a stock is between 2-4 years and I make maybe 3-10 trades per month. If you use Interactive Brokers and are not a trader you can get away with a $10 per month account charge if you don't subscribe to any news feeds and you can trade on international exchanges for something like $3-4 bucks per trade (my trades are generally only $500-$3k). I know the dumbed down retail sites charge ridiculous amounts for executing trades on the TSX or venture for instance, etrade was like $25 +. 

Quick edit: the $10 per month is a minimum monthly charge, so if your commissions for the month are more than $10 I believe you are not charged if I remember right - you can really tell I don't trade much. I'm probably a money loser for IB :P
