Why don't just go to the counter, ask for the form, fill in yourself, then just pass it to anyone to do final check before u submit?

Unless of course you are also opening a bank account as well
Lol I already applied and done everything. Yep had to open bank account too as need to transfer funds from there to the trading account. Pleasant experience but I didn't open all markets or enquire about Dash account.

Just wondering whether it was possible to know who was the person who did the application after I left.

Now am more afraid will anyhow buy stocks due to the low comm.. the min comm earlier was a big deterrent for me from doing so

With Min Comm, your purchase must be zhun, and you tend to hoot at one shot like 100,000 shares etc

Without min comm, u can buy as little as 100 shares and so spread out your purchases into 100 days lor..

Sometime pungsai nothing to do can go hoot 100 shares of ug healthcare first, then later lunch hoot another 100 shares again..

Not happy with the price u get, just throw the 200 shares down since your loss won't be as high as $25 also etc then proceed to buy back again at lower price

Unlike using the min Comm $25, throw le instantly lost $50 Liao, like that half day of my pay gone in 5min.

$50 can do a lot of things also leh, can pay 2 months HP Bill or even go KL day trip

Doesn't matter; just make sure you have GBP for GBP stocks, and USD for USD stocks (there are USD stocks listed on LSE). It is recommended to open all currency settlement accounts, just in case.

ya ive been hooting stocks in at least $3k-$5k worth to "save" on the min comm.. so if like 50 cent stocks have to buy like 10k shares of them.. if go up also earn more, but go down also lose more

but me just a peasant don't have so much $3k to hoot
