When we talk about developement Us always has been the center of focus . Its every event has Lot of impacts on the world Economy and growth . More over many small countries have direct dependability on the Imports done by the us from these nations .

if we talk about India , Many of the indian's dream about getting Green card to get the benefits offered by the world's most developed economy.

So the point here is if we are spending buying things from these cos then why not become owner of these companies by investing in their shares .

Point 2 - The another reason to think about investing in Us stock is the Currency Difference . Today For every 1 $ we need to give 74.5 Rs as a conversion ratio , In 2017 for 1 Dollar 64 Rs were required to be given . As the Dollar is the main Global currency Since past many years the price of it has been appreciating ovr period of Time . If we think of next 10-20 years ahead then there are chances of $ reaching the ratio of 1 $ = 100 Rs or so , Crude oil,Gold's international transactions will remain the key factors behind Dollars Upmoves .

Point 3 - We talk about diversification of the Equities and tend to invest in the different stocks or sectors to build baskets .

So if you have Exposure in the Us market then it may help your porfolio to Gain better when the indian markets are not doing well .

Point 4 - Indian Investors has the options to invest in the Mf schemes which will either directly invest in the overseas funds which are directly investing in the us stocks or They may invest directly in the us shares .

Point 5 - You must be feeling , I am ready to invest but don't have much idea about hwo to pick the stocks , Do the analysis of the sector and so on , Yes ! its valid thinking , Good news is that some of the platforms offering Global / Us equity investments offer ready made baskets based on Different themes , like Value investing , Global innovation , Us tech bluechip , GlobalX , War & peace etc are some of the sample names of them .

No ! as of now if we see most of the platforms transaction charges structure , many of them are very small amount as brokerage , Some of them are also giving you the Free trades* every month , the account opening cost is very low or Free ! There is no AMC for most of the platforms , Yes there will be charges related to transfer / withdrawl of the funds as those are taken by your banks . The platforms in most cases don't take anything for adding / withdrawl of the money .

Point 7 - This is another Crucial Point which all investors will ask , " What is the security of the stocks which we will buy , Who will held our stocks , in case of any Issues of the Platforms what is the assurity of our stocks , the amount held as balance in the opened investments account "

US brokerage ecosystem recommends that ever investor account should have insurance.

In case of Stockal's brokerage partner, DriveWealth LLC, a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), will serve as the custodian for your securities account. In the event that DriveWealth LLC fails and is placed in liquidation under the Securities Investor Protection Act, securities in your brokerage account may be protected up to $500,000. For details, please see

Please note that this USD 500,000 is not applicable general losses in the stock market. SIPC says the following: SIPC protects against the loss of cash and securities – such as stocks and bonds – held by a customer at a financially-troubled SIPC-member brokerage firm. The limit of SIPC protection is $500,000, which includes a $250,000 limit for cash. A non-U.S. citizen with an account at a brokerage firm that is a member of SIPC is treated the same as a resident or citizen of the United States with an account at a brokerage firm that is a member of SIPC.

SIPC does not protect against the decline in value of your securities. SIPC does not protect individuals who are sold worthless stocks and other securities. SIPC does not protect claims against a broker for bad investment advice, or for recommending inappropriate investments.
