Any suggestions on what platform is the best to buy stocks in the American markets?
And what is your guys feelings about the American markets? Bad timing to buy stocks?

Looking at your other post, you’ve mentioned that you are based in South Africa. If that’s indeed the case, then it would be better to trade American stocks / ETFs through your local/existing stockbroker. Most countries’ stock exchanges have links to other exchanges and hence using the local stockbroker you can trade. This will also simplify your tax compliances.
There have already been a few discussion posts on the forum and hence if you search it you will find further detail information.
For the market timing, meaning whether is it a good time to buy, nobody knows. Most individual investors have lost more money waiting for a correction or trying to time the market compared to the actual drawdown in the market.
I hope this will be helpful.
