投資美國股票

With the rising prominence of US technology companies like Apple, Google, and forever present Microsoft, and the attractive potential returns associated with these companies, more and more people are asking, "how do I invest in US shares directly?"
當美國科技大廠蘋果,谷歌及微軟掌控全球市場,而且它們未來的報酬率仍大有可為時,越來越多的投資人在問,“我如何能直接買美國股票?”
Given the exchange controls in place in South Africa, it is not a straight-forward task. However, it is also not insurmountable. There are brokerages in South Africa that let clients invest in foreign shares, albeit with higher costs.
因為南非還是有外匯管制,這不是件直截了當的事。但是,直接買美股也非行不通。在南非有證券商提供客戶購買外國股票的服務,雖然費用較高。
After having googled to find an answer, I have found an article that perhaps direct us to a good way of investing in US shares directly, for non-US citizens:
上網搜尋後,我尋找到一篇文章,也許給與我們非美國居民一條直接投資美股之路:
