Hi guys,

do you know if any of the following restrictions apply to either SEHK, Shanghai, or Tokyo Stock Exchange?

1. Prohibition of day trading in general (I hope none of them have this restriction)
2. Prohibition of day trading for foreigners
3. Minimum capital requirement (like the SEC's 25000$ minimum deposit rule)
4. Uptick rule (I believe SEHK and Tokyo have it, but correct me if I'm wrong)

also, what broker would you recommend for trading Shanghai stocks, because Interactive Brokers doesn't list Shanghai for some reason....

Shanghai shares are not available for day trading as you are not permitted to close your position on the same day. I believe that all Chinese exchanges are the same. Also short selling has not been possible up to now although the government has recently indicated that this will change.

Finally China "A" shares are not available for Non-Chinese nationals to buy.
