Need a UK stock broker that does international shares as well


8 1
I'm in the market to buy some shares and I have been looking for a decent UK stock broker. My top choices so far seem to be an IG stock broking account or a TD Direct Investing account.

I'm going to be relatively low activity trader so TD Direct Investing isn't idea as it has a £10 per quarter inactivity fee. IG stock broker is better as there is no inactivity fee (well there is if you are inactive for 2 years but I plan to be more active than that) but it doesn't offer shares on the NYSE.

So basically I'm looking at buying shares in the:

FTSE 100
FTSE 250
and maybe even in some Asian exchanges.

One thing I'd really really love is API access so I can write programs to query my holdings. From what I have read this normally requires direct market access which I am not adverse to getting if it means I can use it in my own programs. But that is a nice to have feature not a must have.

Can anyone recommend any decent stock brokers to me at all based on the above?

If you need any more information let me know.
