Guten Tag Alles !  :)

Do you please speak English ? I ask that because my German is catastrophic and I need some advice ; I am living in Switzerland, I need some information in relation with our country and here is obviously the only forum for my case.

My name is Amel, I am living west Switzerland and I am going to trade US option. My idea is to open an account in (US company), account which would be then located in England (because I am in Europe).

My question is simple : does someone know if it would be then complicated to take some of my own money (from this account) and send it to one of my accounts in Switzerland ? I ask this because if the account is in US (by example in TD Ameritrade), I would have then to explain EACH time I take some money the purpose of that, because the "US patriot act", and I find this boring...

Does please someone know the subject and can inform me ?

Thanks all, best regards,

Amel    :)



I use IB and transfer to other accounts are no problem and very fast. Just make sure that the account is under your name - otherwise it will not work.

Kind Regards,
