Yes, most definitely since it is only less than $600.

I am required by mu current company to close all external broker accounts and i have closed mine with POEMS.

I want to open a new external account but i do not wish my current company to know. By opening an account with SCB, since it does not involve my personal CDP account, does it mean that my employer is unable to check then?

Use your father or mother's name to open a joint USD current account in SCB. Then based on this, ask them to open an online trading account to trade.

It is not illegal to open a scb foreign currency account. Neither is it illegal to open a joint savings account with parents. If any company that you are working with tells your at the abovementioned I stated is illegal, you have the right to sue their pants off.

but your job is at risk if you are found to have an online trading account (individual or joint) to trade even though it is not bound by law.

So lets say you join ABC bank as a trader, and the bank requires you as part of your job not to have external trading accounts to prevent conflict of interest, insider trading etc, you can sue your employer? Really? Just asking.

i know each year, the compliance will pick up a group of employee, and do a throughout check, just dont be the unlucky one and if they need, they can request MAS to grant the right to check and request all other banks to surrender your details..

maybe he mean sue MAS or company?

joint and single ownership are no difference. you are still holding an account in the course of your work. you think an employer is so stupid to draft such rules stating that no single account but can joint account?

i mean joint account with no trading facility is fine. but if there is a trading facility, then its definitely against the rules.

can the guy sue you for wrong information instead if anything happened?
