Picking an online broker for investing for a non-US Non-EU investor

I live in Turkey and picked up an interest in investing to be able to feel financially safe and hopefully free in the future, two years ago.
I picked a couple of divident paying stocks and bought small amounts. I also picked a couple of funds and invested even smaller amounts to see how they perform.
One thing I noticed is that, the market is not likely to beat the inflation (if it can, it will be barely - and statistics are not very reliable at the moment), and nobody in the country remembers a period where USD lost power to Turkish lira in a persistent way, but we are seeing the reverse right now. This is so obvious and certain for most of our people that just buying USD alone is an investment form which will not fail you.
Obviously unless I happened to pick up the stocks that will constantly outperform the whole market, it's unlikely that I gain a financial freedom in this way. And I can't do day trading or short term investment because I can't sit in front of a screen and monitor the market. Also, dividends are not reliable as a company might decide to skip a year or stop paying it altogether. And the divident performance of the whole market is around 1%.
So, I don't feel like this environment is the right one for long term investment. That's why I am planning to invest in the US and maybe the UK stock markets.
There are a couple of banks that let me invest in those markets, but their commission rates are insane. The minimum they will get for one transaction is $25. I was planning to start with something like $250-300 and if I invest with them, there goes one-tenth of my money. However, transferring money to a foreign account costs 40-50 Turkish liras, which roughly translates to $7-8. Considering that I'm planning to put small amount of money and buy stocks with it, transferring money to a broker makes sense.
However this arises safety issues as I'm going to invest with an American or British broker. Moreover it will have to be an online broker because others don't accept foreigner investors. Risk increases.
While I was doing research, I learnt that Saxobank, Tradestation Global and Interactive Brokers accept Turkish citizens. I can't pick Saxobank as they have a minimum of $10,000 which I won't have for a while.
I checked them out to see if they are safe, but apart from obvious advertisement websites, it is very confusing.
For instance, https://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex-reviews/165/tradestation-stock-broker and https://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex-reviews/165/tradestation-stock-broker They both are slammed here. But check this out: https://www.tradingview.com/brokeTradeStation/reviews/
Here, where the company can answer, there is a different story: https://www.trustpilot.com/review/interactivebrokers.com This one is another: https://www.trustpilot.com/review/tradestation.com?languages=en
So, what are your thoughts about these two brokers? Are there any alternatives I am missing? Or should I just not invest in these markets?
EDIT: I'm also worried about inactivity fees as I plan to buy and forget whether stocks or funds.

Need advice on which online broker to use. Please advise!

I want low cost trades, currently use Edward Jones and get raped. I started with EJ because I started a Roth there, and will keep it there. It just is not good for short term trading.
I want my money to be quickly accessible so I can disengage it / Reengage it to capture gains/avoid losses. I would want lowest fees. I don't mind commission per trade being around 10 bucks, so the 5-12usd range is fine. I ONLY do straight stock trades. No options/mutual funds/forex I think... as I am a newbie.... I would also need easy documentation for tax purposes. This will be my first year paying capital gains/loss on my trading activity. I want that to be as smooth as possible. I will be getting a CPA for taxes this year, previously used TurboTax and did it myself.
I will have between 2500-10000usd in the account. I do some light day trading. (1-2 trades max a day, usually 1-2 trades every 1-2 weeks, AKA not a lot but still in short term range.)
I started because of the following reasons. I have a B.S. in International Economics from Texas Tech. I invest in E&P companies. I have four years experience working completions[frac jobs] in the oil industry, primarily the Permian Basin/Midland-Odessa of Texas. I have a lot of time on my hands while at work that doesn't interfere with my work quality and I can still watch/act on the market movements.
So far I think TradeKing is my best bet but not sure. Maybe Cobra Trading
Any advice is welcome!! Please help!
Hoping this was the right subforum, also posting in Investment
e: I have robinhood but was told it took 2-3 days for funds to clear trades. This doesn't work for me as sometimes I enteexit on the same day.
e2: I am going to be calling a good friend with 4 years experienced for JP Morgan today to clear up some confusion I believe is here due to terminology. Will update thread when I can more clearly explain myself.
I looked up margin accounts, PDT, and margin trading. As far as I know, I am not a margin trader, I do not trade on margin, nor have I done so. I have the cash backing up all trades I made. All trades I made/make have the equity/cash inside my brokerage account to back them up.
e3: I have a cash account, I want to stay cash account. PDT will apply to me. I do not have the funds to enter into margin trading nor the desire.
I am probably just needing to decide between tradekings and tradestation. They all seem the same cost wise just need to look into their tools and layouts and which one I enjoy.
Thanks for the help everyone.
