As American, how to invest in SGX-listed stocks?

As an American working in Singapore on Employment Pass, how can I invest in SGX-listed stocks?

I think I can purcahse through my US-based ScottTrade account, however, I wonder if it's easiest and cheapest (no int'l exchange service fees) to invest through a local account? What implications are there?

Nothing particularly unusual about it, just sign up with an online trading service and off you go. Online brokers for SGX include DBS Vickers, UOB Kay Hian, POEMS, etc.
