read somewhere if we are issued warrants, we can call in to SC to exercise the warrants?

But is there anywhere to buy and sell the warrants? Could't find anything related to this matter

Got a qns with regards to the real time quote.

Is it possible to see more than 5 last executed trades at the bottom left?

And for volume, can you see how much was bought/sold?

For day's range, i assume it is for bid? and not ask. Am i right? Thank you

I have a question on buying foreign stock.

Lets say if i want to buy 1 share of a stock listed on US market, currently its hovering around 100-110 USD. So i transfer 110 usd to my usd settlement account. If i manage to buy the share at 105 usd, i will have 5 usd left in my settlement account. If i transfer that 5 usd back to sgd, does that mean that i will have to pay the forex charge twice?

Also for the commission, will it take from my usd account or sgd account.

Yes. It is not really the forex charge per se, but rather the high spread of forex conversion. For example, you change SGD to USD at 1.34, and then change USD back to SGD at 1.29, when the actual spread itself could be 1.32/1.31 respectively. I would rather leave the USD5 as float inside the account, which I do.

Commission is charged in USD and will be deducted from your USD settlement account.

Can I check, for stand chart securities, if I buy 1 share at $0.05, total I need to pay is:

1 share: $50
Personal banking brokerage fees: 0.20%
Market fees: 0.0325%

Total: $50.12?

Based on the rates that you quoted, it should be about 50.12 rather than 55.12.

Do you guys get this problem? If you log out and log in again within 15 min, you cannot do online trading because it says you are still logged into the previous session and you should log in again after 15 mins. Frustrating.
