This looks interesting. Is it possible for non residents to open accounts?

Yes.  There's no FATCA requirements when it is foreign branch of a U.S. company.

You don't need a foreign account to buy foreign stocks though.  Plenty of U.S. brokerages offer it.

Still seems very expensive:

Service fee
This covers the costs of everything the administrator of your investments offers you. At Fidelity, the service fee is typically at 0.35% of the value of your holdings (or less if you have more invested with us). This fee reduces to 0.20% if you have �250,000 or more with Fidelity Personal Investing. In addition, we won't charge an annual service fee on any assets above the level of �1,000,000.

It is difficult to find really cheap Fund Platforms from what I have seen. I like to have some money in funds rather than rely solely on ETF, just for more diversification.
