if big amount, do a FX conversion from SGD into USD at the bank that offers the tightest spread... then do a TT into your SCB USD settlement account.

if small amount, just convert using SCB inhouse FX conversion (lousy spread but convenient)
really can do this ? because i think i ask before and they say no transactions allowed.

Sian, tried to set up an online trading account but after SCB saw my CAR that I had no prior trading experience or learning experience. They told me I cannot trade using SCB platform... anyone else have had this issue? Or do I need to trade elsewhere before trying to open a trading account with SCB again?

I agree.. but I think its the best way to protect SCB's interest by blocking new investors...

I have read this thread for page 1 onwards over the last 3 days.
Very informative.

I have a couple of questions to ask tho:

* seems the the SCB platform is not the most user friendly and stable. But has there been improvements over the past months since it was lanuched ? Just curious

* I understand that for Singtel it is possible to 10 or 100 shares.
Singtel 10 / Singtel 100 for example.
But is it possible for other stocks such Starhub or ST for example ?

Thanks.

* not much change. whats your priority? a nice platform with all the tools but more expensive commission OR just a simple platform to transact cheaply? if its the latter, then SCB is for you.

* number of shares still follow the same board lot conventions like other brokers.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your reply.

* I am just curious if SCB have been upgrading their platform for the past year. I am looking for a simple platform for buy and hold basically so that a simple & cheap platform will do just fine.

* Are there any other ways to buy 100 / 500 shares of other stocks beside Singtel ? My funds are limited ...
