for rights issue, they will send u a sms and letter, just call the cso and tell them ur option...maybe in terms of the deadline is shorter

after all is a no frill platform...happy with scb so far

Definitely. this is a godsend. for the longest time i was bitter abt the min comm in the market that limits how i trade and this comes out that completely addressed everything

eVERYDAY?? how is it possible? technical glitch? even weekly is a bit too much - even if its online. maybe you are their premier priority high net worth customer that they focus a lot on you
Nope, I not high net worth. very low networth.
Trade everyday, so they send me what I sell and buy on each date.
Singapore market not everyday, but US market is everyday got trade.

Pros
1) no min lot, so I can put at different price points.
2) no min comm( this is even cheaper than my KE and KH accounts if I buy the same value)
3) Dividends come in fast. For US today payout, within T+3 see payments in.

Cons
1) sometimes website down
2) no transfer to CDP (but doesn't really bother me)

OIC. hm is there a min lot by other platforms? I thought the min lot by default is 1. Yes i rmb there was once the website is down and it kinda pissed me because i was trying to log in to sell a counter. I could have called the customer service directly but didnt bother to since the trade is not that urgent or die die must execute. nevertheless, this is an isolated incident and so far happy with this and will be happy to stick to it as long as the no min comm sticks

I think he meant no minimum lot because he is allowed to buy even 1 lot of any penny stock (no minimum comm). if other brokers, you need to buy a certain number of lots for the brokerage fees to be worthwhile.

I refer to your previous posting in this thread. May i know where did you read about the availability of IPOs from SCB platform? I cant find in the FAQ.

*edit* Actually i should have asked my RM. lol

hi, after i sent that post, i realized i must have misread the content on the SCB platform when i proceeded to explore the online trading to apply for SPH REITS ipo. i called up my SCB officer who got someone familiar with this to call me back and she told me its not possible to apply for IPO via scb. in the end, i used my other trading platform to apply. sorry for the mix-up!

I see.

Not an issue. We can always apply IPO through ATM. its $2 only.

Then can transfer the shares from CDP to SCB if we plan to hold long.

ask yourself is your CDP linked to your standchart account? you'll get the answer

No pls pay Cdp 10 dollars plus to transfer ownership of sgx Cdp under your name to scb custodian account, then u can sell.

Net net I still think sell via scb cheaper after paying ten bucks plus but I wonder if so much trouble worth it or not

Yes but I didn’t have enough time to go to the ATM so I used online banking instead. Oh I have some shares in CDP that I wish to transfer to SCB – any idea how to do it? After I send this, I will log in to SCB to play around and hopefully will find out how to do it. Thanks!

you need to fill up 2 forms. 1 form to CDP and SCB each. I have soft copies of the forms. But i am not sure if they are the latest. You can print, fill them up and bring down to Battery Road.

There are no fees transferring from CDP to SCB. I guess they are absorbing the fees at the moment.
