One Way to go is AWAY FROM Etrade: Etrade is the only online broker that charges international customers DOUBLE COMMISSIONS ($19.99)


It is official: Etrade lies on their commissions. On http://www.etrade.com they say commissions is $9.99. They don’t say anything about double commissions ($19.99)  for international customers for the same trades that cost US customers $9.99 This is the official statement by Etrade staff of their ripoff:
