Spread betting might work out cheaper? I don't have much experiance with that but you can certainly access lots of world markets. Were you after specific stocks? If you just want exposure to the US you could buy a tracker, Ishares has them for loads of markets including US.

elsoft. Yes a non-US citizen can invest in US stock market, provided you are a resident and have a social security number. A checking account will be useful as there are charges cheques and wire deposits for most of the brokers. This said an extreme care should be taken while investing you hard earned money in the stock market, but I am sure you understand that.

I see no reason why a non-us citizen is not allowed to buy US stock. You can do it in two ways that I can think of. First, you check with your local brokers to see if they provide the service to invest in foreign stock market ie US market. If yes, then it would be quite simple for you to start investing in it. Secondly, you can open an online broker and fund it with your money. But you need to careful in selecting a reliable online brokers, in order to ensure your capital is protected in case the broker gone busted.
