just went to open to open an standard chartered e$aver account along with a online trading account.

the CSO told me from 1st June 2011, all e$aver account need a Minimum average daily balance of $1500?

I went to their website still put as $0. Anybody can confirm?
e-saver should be at least $1 after 6mth upon open if not will auto closed.

No minimum commission for all the available markets from SCB online trading. This includes the US market, of course.

while min 3K avg daily balance, but if you dont maintain 6K, you will not get the necessary cash rebates.

what is the confusion?

if you maintain <3k, there is a penalty and no rebates
if you maintain >3k but <6k, then there is no rebates and no penalty.
if you maint >6k, you are entitled to rebates

the no min. comm. is the biggest draw for me

so paul, i save u the trouble and call them myself
firstly, the tel no. given on the promo site - 1800 747 700 - is NOT the no. to call
it should be 1800 242 5333
1st operator gave me the run-around, promising the trading side will call me back... its been 1hr.. no call back...
2nd operator gave me the correct no. to call...

this is what i got;
************************************************************
The min. comm. is an ongoing thing... its not a promo..
the promo is the 2 free trades

The custodian of your shares is confirm - SCB will keep your shares
there's no custodian fees
but if u prefer to move your shares to CDP, u can request SCB to do so and they'll arrange it - again, no fees for this
************************************************************

for myself, the 2 free trades promo is no biggie... i'll standby and see what are the actual experiences...
(i'm secretly hoping for the no min. comm. practice to catch on) :p
Just open esaver today.
For the transfer of securities to CDP, officer who assist me told me transfer fee i have to pay myself, think is 10.60 from CDP website.

Dont think there is any link to CDP with this SCB trading acct.
Thus whatever we hold in CDP currently we cant sell them through SCB, if not it will be a short sell i think.
