just open a trading acct with scb since my citi brokerage increase their comm...

however can i ask when i place an order for scb, the order only last for 1 day? because i dont see any option for me to choose the period of time for the order like citi so everyday i have to login to replace my order if it didnt execute on that day?
Cheap. So barest minimum platform.

Want more features must pay for it. Lol.

I'm using scb too.

Hey guys, can i check when scb activate the other currencies for trade, do they do it 1 shot for everything, or do they activate them one by one?

I went down to scb last weekend to activate us and lse market with both currencies (usd and gbp) checked, but only gbp was activated.

You need to give them the authorisation to open all.

Best if you just open all, don't need to keep going back to activate it.

If they only open one but not the other, just give them a call.

Remember. Whatever currency the stock needs, they will only get it from the settlement account of that currency.

Hey guys. I been look through this thread and see that SCB still does not allow to open account without passing CAR and it depends on the discretion of the RM. That is still true right?

Is there any way to open an account other than just buying a bunch of foreign shares on another playform first?

Just tell them you've done 6 trades on other platforms, but make sure you know the terms used in trades incase they question you.

They will not ask to check? What terms for you mean?

They did not, atleast for my case. Terms like P/E, dividend yields etc, it could be anything to test your knowledge.

just act like u very pro can liao.. like u say u want open securities trading account, he say need to open bank account also, just cut him and say u know , know. then after he will also tell u about the commission SCB charges, just cut him again and say u know, u know. everything just say u already know can liao. but of cos if u need clarify some things don't say u know la also just remember some of the brokerage names like Vickers, Itrade, POEMs cos they will also prob ask what platform u already using.

try to print out the form and fill in before going down too also

In Singapore, if give wrongful declaration intentionally has it's consequences.

Don't get caught, then you are safe.
