UK Trader

Hi Ladies and Gents,

I am an active trader in the UK/US and European derivatives market. I am looking to invest heavily in the indian markets and was wondering if anyone can give me any advice with respect to how I go about doing so.

Things like setting up a trading account, an account to fund the trading account, best internet trading software etc.

A little info about how the indian derivatives markets operate would also be helpful. Thank you.

P.S. I am particularly interested in the NSE futures and options markets.

I think he means to ask if you are a Non-Resident Indian (NRI) , beacuse then u CAN trade on the Indian Markets.

Conversely, if have a foreign passport (regardless of country of origin), you may require some approvals from our Regulatory authorities to allow you to trade here.

Am I correct? .... Traderji /others
