Thanks for the Advice on the US broker, I will look into that. Although I am wondering whay advantage do you see in investing in dividend-stocks vd. Investing in an accumulating ETF based in some high dividend index. It is my understanding that in the second case you will pay no taxes as this are capital gains. ( the dividends are reinvested so the share price of the ETF rises instead of giving you dividends each year ).

of course one can always go and buy and ETF with a US broker...
It's fun & possibly to significantly beat the index's, however if like most mutual funds you just buy whats hot today & what everyone else is buying you will under perform the index as 90% of them always do year after year,
