Investing in the US Stock Market even if you're not from the US


Investing in the US Stock Market even if you're not from the US
Investing in the US Stock Market even if you're not from the US 1
Hi guys!

I was just wondering, is it possible to buy stocks on the US Stock Market like on Dow Jones even if you are not American and not from the United States? I am from the Philippines. Is there any website, an app, or a platform wherein someone can open a brokerage account online and buy stocks of companies listed in NASDAQ? 

Thank you for your replies, have a great day!

Yes there's a way by using a Malaysian or Singaporean site because these 2 countries are able to invest directly in the US Stock Exchange. A friend told me about it but everytime Im asking him the name of the site, hell go own ranting that he spent 2 years looking for such a site and that he won't give it to me for free. But it's legit because he can seed his account using PayPal or his Atm card and he gets his earnings the same way.

So if anyone here knows the site I'm talking about please do share it.

He is not your friend since he won't tell it to you for free haha! Kidding aside, I think that website is great since you can link your PayPal account. Others would require you to have a credit card which I don't have, and I have no plans of getting one since it is only a hassle. I do not wish to spend money I don't have.

I'd do some research about it and post it here if ever I get something substantial. Thanks, man!

You know I've been researching about this topic for about a year now and I know for a fact that our government doesn't allow or is it the other way around, investments to stock exchanges of other countries.  It's just like online casinos in which we don't have access to international betting, it's being blocked by pagcor while international stock investments are also being blocked.  I think our government wants us to invest in our local companies and they also want us to gamble in sites managed by pagcor.  

But there are loopholes in which one could bet in online casinos in UK and Europe.  One can also invest in the US stock market but the problem is noone is telling how?  Because it's quite lucrative and they just want to keep it quiet.

There are some leads in a site called Money Pantry and this led me to a site called Money Online Investment, I think it's a shady scamsite so I just invested $30 on on DAO stocks, that's $3 per stock and I just let it ride for 6 months since I invested in January of this year.  My balance there was $0 because I've used the $30 I've deposited to buy 10 stocks then by June 1, I've got $20 plus on my balance, it's withdrawable, it seems that they give out earnings or dividends, precomputed on a daily basis.  It means my $30 would earn about $40 aditional per year so that's basically double your money. Check it out at...

MoneyOnlineInvestment.  

Again I haven't withdrawn my earnings because, I'm waiting to earn a total of $30 to recoup my full investment before I would try withdrawing it.  I'm not guaranteeing that it's legit okay but better see it for yourself and also google for scam reviews and YouTube videos.

You could try buying one share just to try it out...minimum investment is $3 via PayPal, precomputed dividends paid daily, credited daily. $3 would earn $0.01 - $0.02 per day.

From what I heard, it's very hard to invest in the US stock market. There are so many requirements that are required to be meet before you can be able to invest in the stock market, and I doubt if it's open to non US citizens. You have to be a US citizen, have a social security number, have physical address etc.

You can invest through Philippine banks. There are banks that offer equity feeders like BDO for example. BDO offers China and US Index funds. You will need a large sum of money to invest in foreign country stock markets though.

There are some alternatives to investments outside the Philippines one of which is a site called MoneyOnlineInvestments where you can pick a company and buy some stocks for as low as $3 investment per share. They also give out a precomputed daily dividend which differs on what stock you purchase, you can make deposits to your account via PayPal.
I really don't know if it's all legit but I did invest $30 in it last January and they've paid me $20 in dividends since then.
