hi all, i just went to open a scb online trading account, but i realized the relationship manager didnt help me open a cdp account. Is it an automatic opening or is it cos scb is using nominal account so cdp is not required?

thanks and sorry if this has been asked and answered..


How did you pass CAR if you have no CDP account which means you have never traded before? Care to share the secret?

orders filled alr, but when will they take the money out from the security settlement acc ? to pay for the stock i purchased?

2-3 days. It is actually taken out already, if you try to transfer your $$ in your settlement account out right now, you can't. The updated sum is always delayed a few days so sometimes you dunno how much you have in your settlement account. If you really wanna know, you need to keep track yourself.

correct. and if u transfer in 10k to ur securities account, buy a stock using 7k, try to buy another that cost 4k, you will tio rejected even though the balance still shows 10k.

really have to track urself, this part i find quite annoying. :s13:

SCB is a custodian. there is no CDP linkage. you will not receive those fanciful prospectus as well. which imo, is a plus actually.

Go to online trading -> under the purchase share page, on the right hand side column there is a function called "check purchasing power" or smth along that line. If you click that it shows u exactly how much cash u have left in your respective settlement accounts

Found it. Thank a lot! Took awhile.

So the more detailed instruction to find this purchase power is go to scb, log in, go to online trading, place a trade, on the right hand side you will find purchasing power, click refresh to see how much purchasing power you have left with all the different currency account in all it's glory.

I try to do a internal transfer from SGD settlement account to Esaver with whatever amount is left that is displayed, not possible. This is despite still having a purchasing power higher then displayed amount left in the sgd settlement account.

Apologies for the vague instructions.

Hmmm that's strange. Any idea why?
I usually just use that function to check how much power i have left to purchase shares.

Is it because the purchase power increases upon selling of shares? But only can use it for purchasing shares and not for withdrawing? Just a wild guess..

I think so too. But testing this will have to wait till market opens and a little math to make sure its a test and not a real transaction. haha.

That is not right. If above certain amount, commission is 0.2% for SCB and 0.275% for the rest. Still a big difference. 27% cheaper for SCB.

I think u ignored the other brokerage's cash upfront account... above a certain amount, other brokerage with cash upfront is cheaper,

above 50k, even poems is cheaper... etc.

I using ocbc, but they see contract value one

under 50k is the 0.275
50-100k is 0.22
100k is 0.18

SCB is 0.2 for any size right, so overall definitely looks much cheaper

I prefer put my shares in CDP

however I now thinking of applying new strategy, since now can buy 100 shares per lot

can machiam build my own etf inside SCB
example buy 20 different reits like $100 x 20 = 2k = 1 lot reit etf

quite interesting now that I think of it
