It's a Catch-22 situation: you need trading experience to open a trading account, but you can't get trading experience until you open a trading account. I don't know why they have the "minimum 6 trades" rule in the first place...
You need trading experience or relevant experience or qualification to buy/sell foreign listed market + etf and warrants listed in Singapore only.

My guess is because scb does not have the procedure or technology to restrict selective markets or limit for specific market for certain classification of clients to trade and therefore they have to restrict all markets include Singapore market also.

Maybe you guys can consider taking the sgx education test and try to pass then bring down the email n show them that you are qualified and educated enough to start trading with scb?

I tried open in SCB NEX, but they refuce to open for me because I don't have experience in trading SIP..

Stanchart is maintaining its low cost fee structure. utilise it while it lasts! buy in smaller lots to ride these volatile and uncertain periods.

anyone use SCB online trading to trade US stocks?

how do I get started? now I use SCB online trading trade SG stocks, need to fill up extra application forms?

I called SCB trading hotline rep but she doesnt give me clear info about the extra forms part.

She did told me that the commission is 0.25% for US stocks but when I ask her if it covers the charges for NYSE/NASDAQ trading she seems to be confused and put me on hold for long.

SCB is better or I use etrade/ameri trade?
