I see a lot of users portfolio's and Stocko's recommendations are oriented towards the UK markets. Do Stockopedia users actually invest in US or other shares? I know it's an extra cost for different regions and I purchased the US region on top of the UK region. That gave me far more choices compared to UK only.

So I'm wondering if other users have done this and how much success they have with US stocks compared to UK shares?
