why do you need to monitor purchasing power? i dont rely on that.

i monitor my settlement account. thats where all the transactions are debit/credited. and the balance will determine my purchasing power. how much i can buy. so far no issue.
Yes can check settlement account for reference and try to find out what's going on, but it's not real-time and does not include trades made in the last 3 days? By right we should be able to rely on the purchasing power. Seems something is wrong lately since I am not the only one who came across this. Maybe there is a bug or something, hope it's not virus or anything like that

Have sold some stocks so the "debt part" are now covered and I can trade already. Still need to check through the statements and see if all add up good except am now too busy to do that Some say your money will not disappear, yes but to be safe, better check through, and save the statements to your pc for record purpose.

ever since SCB online started, i traded at least 3 to 5 times on average per month with them. i didnt rely on the purchasing power. because i know how much i can buy base on my account balance plus any outstanding due to me.

after 4 days, all my transactions are counter checked correct up to 1 cent accuracy base on my own calculations.

Mike,

How do you keep track of the transactions? Your own excel file or an app to track your portfolio? Any app to recommend for this purpose? I'm just starting out in this and would appreciate any guidance.

go take this test

https://onlineeducation.sgx.com/spec...tmentproducts/

then print the result and show them lah..

by right this 6 trades are for warrants n etf, and not for sgx stocks, but they trying not to help people open this trading account cos lesser point or incentive for the rm.

so what u can do is to take the test, print the result, and show them u pass the criteria and make them open for u

if they want additional evidence, print this sgx flyer

http://www.poems.com.sg/docs/SGXOnlineEduflyer.pdf

and bring along too
Ok I go try but I still waiting for their application status. Until now there is no news. Anyone know how long for the application to go through?

just create 1 excel sheet to keep track of your transactions ie date, stock, quantity, credit/debit amount. just like what you see on your statements. i throw away all my hard copies and i just consolidate all the transactions into 1 excel sheet.

on page 4



show them that flyer, tell them you DO NOT WANT TO BUY WARRANTS or ETF and ask them WHY still must go through CAR

and you have already passed the online education test, and why still denied you to open the account?

get them to call sgx to verify
Say don't want to buy don't mean really won't when got chance. Last time my friend say go geylang look see only but then left in a cab with a chicken. Abandon the rest of us. Real farker that one.
