I gave up on equities trading a long time ago after losing a lot of money, and switched to options trading. I did a LOT of options trading while in the US. I've been here over 3 years now and still do a little. I use a virtual address (physicaladdress.com) for my mailing address for my bank, SS, and trading account. I use the ThinkOrSwim platform for trading. The only difficulty is the time difference. I used to watch my trades frequently during that day, and now that would require staying up all night. I've been trying to use a "set it and forget it" type of option trade that I've developed and so far (using simulated trading) it has been profitable.
