For the account number, it is the whole array of numbers. Do not omit the first three digits

Lol why ask on HWZ when you are a customer of SCB? They are obliged to help you with your queries, make use of them

Anyway first 3 numbers is the branch code. Account number is the entire string of numbers, including the first 3 numbers. Made a successful transfer a few weeks ago after finding this out from SCB through their messaging system.

Kana before but not so jialat like yours. Mine was order keyed in but price was not matched even though i was the highest bidder for price.
Eg. CURRENT buy price: 0.22 and Sell price 0.225
I keyed BUY 0.225 (its a overnight queue) , wth only matched after almost 1.5hrs.

Did the order got cancel eventually? Whats the duration or did it went through?

Please note that order will only auto cancel / expire after later than 530pm on trading day. This is same as most SG brokers i know of.

Conclusion: SCB has its cons. Lagging is one of it.

All also need to queue. Chiu go sub for Market Depth, see how many more before the next price jump. (Not 100%) sometimes csb.

Chiu want to queue for next trading day. Submit at 5.16.

Aya he takes from seller, should have get filled immediately one and not wait for 1.5 hours later one.. But I think is a case of slow reply from scb on the order status lah.. Which could also pose another problem, imagine when u didn't receive any acknowledgement on the order status from scb, then market crash big time, you thought you got no order filled but the order status came late and you become stucked

Yes. SCB is not recommended for intraday and fast in fast out trades.

Even if it doesnt screw up like what happened to me in late filling of order, the platform is seriously lagged compared to other brokers.

U key buy / sell sometimes no response or will delay for several seconds.

I only use it for small orders and not big orders due to its no min commission which is a plus.

Protip if you want to transfer your shares between CDP and SCB hassle-free:

1. take queue number for "financial service", not "counter service"
2. have your CDP account number in hand
3. have your SCB securities trading account number in hand (not your securities settlement account!)
4. Know the full name of the share your are transferring
5. Know the SGX stock code of your share
6. Know the Sedol/ISIN code of your share
7. Know the exact number of shares you are transferring (avoid odd lots, they will get stuck with SCB since they don't offer odd lot trading)
8. Bring your NRIC (a photocopy will be taken)
9. Be mentally prepared to spend 30 minutes of your time filling up two very unfriendly forms with the above information.

Notes: SCB will not charge any fee, but CDP may or may not (i will report back whether they do once my transfer succeed). I am told that the transfer process may take up to 2 weeks...

But well... their no minimum commission fee won me over. Else i need spend a lot more to dispose of my IPO shares.
