Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, US equities are on a tear after rebounding strongly from a plunge earlier this year. Investors have worked out a huge appetite to buy and ride the bull run in the world’s largest stock market. But for those who reside outside the US, how can they do so in an informed manner at minimum costs?

Tiger Brokers, in partnership with Nasdaq, is offering such a solution. Through its trading platform, investors can now access US market data at little to no cost. Powered by Nasdaq Basic, the trading platform provides real-time trade and quote data of all US-listed equities for free. These include best bid and offer, tick by tick price and Nasdaq opening and closing prices.

Under Nasdaq TotalView, the trading platform provides a full order book depth to determine the liquidity below top of book. This is useful for sophisticated traders, who want insights into the true supply and demand profile of a security at each price point. Tiger Brokers charges US$26 a month for this plan. “Our trading platform in collaboration with Nasdaq helps clients make more insightful investment decisions,” says Ian Leong, head of business development at Tiger Brokers Singapore, whose backers include leading brokerage Interactive Brokers, notable investment guru Jim Rogers and Xiaomi, famed for its ever-expanding range of innovative consumer electronics and other digital products.
