The displayed price is the current indicative price, not the price you bought it.

It shows yesterday's closing price. It will update to today's closing price later.
This price changes every trading day.

Oh, that. Yup, All brokerages does that. It's US's tax law towards foreign investor in US stock market. No way to avoid it if you are investing directly in US market.

I should make a section about tax law then...

Hi, I am still a total beginner in investing and am planning to start one day. I'm deciding on investing in index funds and bonds long term using the DCA strategy every month. But I'm also concerned about how to go about rebalancing this portfolio keeping the ratio accordingly while trying not to incur any extra transaction costs, would it be true that I would incur a 0.18% fee each time I DCA and rebalancing the portfolio respectively? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

scb charges 0.2%, not 0.18%. the best way to keep your ratio would be to add new funds according to the ratio, or as close to it as possible.

each time you try to rebalance by selling and buying, you incur transaction fees.

it's 0.20% per transaction. 0.18 for priority and above banking customers.
Anyway, be very careful with SCB now, due to a problem i encountered.
