So, what's left for canadian resident

When I am planning to open an account to trade eminis, I am surprising to see many companies do not accept canadian resident, (I guess this applies to both canadians and permanent resident, I am the later one, correct me if I am wrong)

Thinkorswim only allow me to open account with thinkorswim.ca;
MD Trading doesn't accept application from Canada;
TradeStation no longer accept application from Canada;

So, what options do I still have?
IB Canada? Does't it work exactlly the same as "IB the rest of the world"?? in terms of its markets accessiability and products?

Any work arounds with the so mentioned companies above?

or any other good companies that I am still missing out there.

recommandations are welcome.

Many thanks

IB works very well for me, but I am also a Canadian citizen so not sure if it works for permanent residents. Although, now that I think about it, it should work for permanent residents as well. IB also offers access to e-mini's for trading.

eSignal. It links directly with IB's TWS.

Re: So, what's left for canadian resident

hello

i used zumo (firetip software) and liked it very much. Reason why I closed out was because I dont trust the U.S. economy, their currency or their Government.

time to move off-shore which doesnt mean it gets easier as I really enjoyed trading futures and currencies through CME
