Anybuttie got problem transferring money out of the settlement a/c?
This stupid scb trading really @^%!@^
I could transfer money from my savers into the settlement but when I tried to transfer the same amount out from settlement back to esavers the transfer was rejected. I've been trying the whole pm. I called SCB they said they will look into it and until now got no solution. Maybe tmr will be better.

Objection!! Carry all the bank's tokens with you all the time is very very very inconvenience, and I don't carry lady's handbag... If SMS don't arrive, you should change your phone.
They can issue token and let us use either one of them, same as UOB online banking. My phone never had problem in other occasions.

When we cannot have both security and convenience, I think I would go for security on this matter. If you don't like to carry a handbag, maybe you can consider hanging all of the tokens around your neck.

This is one of the thing that pisses me off. They should either deduct immediately since it is basically cash upfront, or at least tell us how much is there left after we buy stocks on the T day.

I end up having to guess how much is there left between T and T+3

Quite pissed with SCB's trading. opened a UOB instead. Started using it and have no problems at all.

I will only consider using SCB when I want to keep for long term. Right now I got some money floating around and SCB can't tell me how much I have.

settlement is done on T+3, so money will only be deducted by T+3, or else i think you will be asking them for interest for that 3 days while between trade day and settlement day ;D

I see your point, thanks.

They should then at least let us know clearly how much is there left in our SS account once we purchase shares on T day so that we don't have to guess.

When placing an order, there is a box on the right with a button that you can click to see your current purchasing power. This value will take into account transactions that you have made but have not cleared yet cos it's before T+3.

So if you have 2k and you buy 1k of stocks, your purchasing power will show 1k, even if the account balance is still 2k.

you dun hv to guess what
you can get the exact NET amount of your trade the next day
Check the TRANSACTIONS tab then select the date(s) you can see all your NET amount per trade
then you keep track of the mvts on your spreadsheet lah
I always do that

Any way to stop the auto log out every 15 mins? Really troublesome to keep logging in again.

Really lousy platform, but commission saved is worth it for lousy trader like me.

The stop loss is also a bonus, but problem is when you put stop loss, you can't queue to sell at your target price
