Save your time. Just sign up online.

Cash upfront and there is no minimum brokerage fee! You can just buy a $10 worth of stock also

yes! A Godsend for people like me who want to DCA with limited funds.

Imagine you can buy 1 lot of a penny stock, say PTCL, at 40c and the commission is 80c

The old boy's club of local brokers aren't going to be happy....

I beliebe you CAN contra, cash is still only debited from you on T+3. Obviously you have to have the cash inside before you are allowed to buy.

I don;t think this is a problem, except for those who contra with money they don't have.

I know I'm going to sound terribly xenophobia but I dun trust foreign banks.

When I first graduated, my first credit card was actually with SCB. There customer service was quite terrible and they were very sticky on charges like late charge, interest charge, annual fee.

So in the end, I severed my relationship with them and never looked back. More or less same experience with Citibank. Bank of China was not a bad experience.

These was in the past and I'm sure their customer service has improved. But there is nothing that these foreign banks can offered me that the big 3 does not. And this will probably be through even when I become a HNWI.

So thanks but no thanks. Once bittern twice shy.
