Starting 1st Jan, 2020, HDFC Securities got everyone by surprise by introducing www.globalinvesting.in, a no-frills US investing platform, powered by Stockal and a brokerage account with Drivewealth which is complaint with all the US regulators and also SEC registered. No account minimums. You start investing with any amount you wish.
Next, ICICI Securities, is also bringing a global door for us. But, ZERODHA was the first to promise and as usual no word on it. Meanwhile US stocks are hitting new highs day after day.
