Yeah sure why not? Cheapest access to US markets

Yes but you have to convert before buying, which is a little bit more troublesome.
Do I have to do the conversion before I buy? Or I can just place the trade in SGD and they will do the conversion?

This below is the thread to IB.
Suppose, you can start from here, most of your questions should be answered in there.

Note that this can only be used for overseas trading/investing. It can't access local stocks unless your address is in a foreign place.

Must convert to USD before buying - simply transfer cash from any SGD account to the Securities Settlement USD account. They will quote you before confirming the transaction.

By right, at most 2 day delay, you should receive it today, if not have to call in liao.

Hi, quick question. If I want to buy IWDA on LSE, since it's dominated in USD, I would have to transfer or exchange my SGD in esavers to USD in my FCY USD account?

Thank you!

You're half right. You only need to transfer into the Securities Settlement USD account. Unless your FCY USD account offers better exchange rate, don't do it, it's just a waste of time

Suggest you all give SCB a call. It's 2nd day delay if your dividend pay date is on 28 August, as SCB is always delayed by 1 day. So proper time to receive is yesterday, today is 2nd day delayed.
