Ya too much hype, in fact retail investors should do opposite... Keep volume low until they lower min comm from $25 to $5 or $10

The sad thing is that, on Monday, no one will be surprised if SCB won't accept the order if you key in less than 1000 shares.

If SCB is becoming a discount broker like IBRK, I don't mind. Good platform to do ETFs and foreign shares.

Technically StanChart don't have to follow the SGX rules since they're not a listed retail brokerage house with SGX...

EDIT: The way I see it, there are 2 ends: SC and SGX. If SGX changes lot size, on SC side 1 lot = 10 lots on SGX. So even if SGX changes lot size to 100/lot, SC side unchanged, they can still function, and since they're not a listed retail brokerage firm, they don't have to follow SGX. Would be good if they did though, so as to make it clearer for retail investors.

Alternatively, if SC end is "tied" with SGX, then the changes should be "transparent", i.e. SC does not have to incur any additional costs to implement 100/lot, just have to verify the system link.

i called scb on fri/sat to ask whether they would be following sgx 100 shares/lot and the cso said they would be following. To be confirmed tmr though.
