anyone trading US stocks using SCB? As far as i understand, commission is low, but the Forex spread is high?

Also, instead of using their forex spread, could you go to any moneychanger to change your SGD to USD and then deposit into your security settlement acct?
I think there may be a cost for transferring in foreign currency leh. But then the super cheap comms somewhat offsets that, so overall still not bad la, mai hiam.

Yesterday's rates were 1.358843352538319 SGD/USD
