iOCBC Trading Platform

Is anybody here using iOCBC to trade? It doesn't seem to have additional functions like stop loss and market order.

I see the top right side says additional functions are blocked, anybody successfully asked their broker to activate it and used it before?

I dun used it so often but if its blocked, you probably need to 'chalk' up enough brokerage a month to gain access to the functions.

Frankly I'm not sophisticated enough to use such functions. You may call me a newbie in this area.

Some functions are only available to peeps who trade more than $300 worth of broker commission per mth. But I thought are basic functions should be open to all... LoL

Guess not many peeps here uses iOCBC based on the replies here

i dint enable.. cos i dont trade very often and usually, most retail investors have very small holdings, and their orders get filled quite quickly and easily or just sell/buy instantly without queuing

so personally, i dont see the need to enable for the functions

iocbc

i have heard of friends using iocbc and face problems such as:
- system breaking down evey few months esp after some 'upgrade'
- very slow posting of trades esp when market is active
- even worse for fictitious trades or trades of others being entered into their accounts! This is dangerous!

generally among iocbc, uobkayhian and cimb platforms - the consensus among most is that uobkayhian is most stable and friendly even on desktop and mobile platforms - at least no errors in fictitious trades.

Called and asked. Was told the additional functionalities is still "being fixed" at the moment. They put my name on the "queue list" and once fixed in the future they will enable it.

So it is free for all to use? Just a new platform glitch is it?

I use iOCBC on my iphone 4s. There is definitely a bug or two as once in a while, when I go to the Charting section, the program will hang and I have to power off and on my iPhone. Also, occasionally, the program will shut off itself suddenly. So it's quite quirky. I use it not to trade but to look at the charts and Bid/Ask iMatrix as these two features are lacking in the POEMS app.

I am using iOCBC and have to say its not as stable as POEMS,eg, the Times and Sales, just freezes after some time. And you have to click around to see current indices where POEMS is all in one page
