You'll have to compare across the various companies to see if you're getting the best value for a particular policy. One easier way is to go to an independent firm (a.k.a. distributor) first. Usually, they will also have their own agenda, but at least you get them to present a few across a few companies...as compared to just an agent representing 1 company (AIA, GE, NTUC, etc.)

I would think its the volatility of stocks in Singapore. If options were to be introduced, the time frame is rather short and it'd be hard to speculate the direction of share prices rather than warrants where the validity can be up to 15 years

Cheapest way to buy US stocks would be through TD Ameritrade or Interactive Broker. Saxo markets also offer min. USD4 broker fees

Hi anon, Perhaps you would like to elaborate a little on your current situation so that a more specific answer can be given. A more accurate picture really should take into account factors such as your current age, assets, liabilities, portfolio, cashflow, etc. However, if you don't feel comfortable to share, I will do my best to send you some guidelines to work on - What should I be looking at investing in? Asset classes have two broad forms, guaranteed and variable. Or you can look at asset classes as those with growth and those with income. Which suits you more depends on your goal. If you are near retirement, you should focus more on income assets. Growth assets would work if you have the ability to cope with more risk or have more time to grow them - How should I distribute my cash? Again, this is dependent on your investment goals, as I mentioned above. However, I can say this: Don't throw everything into a single asset class. Diversify. - What should I have set up before I start investing? A multi asset investment account, and a CDP account. Plus, nerves of steel, since you're about to start something that you've never done before. - What are some educational tools that I can use and look at before I start investing? The seedly website has a number of good articles for beginners. Hope that helps.

Using astrology to trade. Apparently some guy plotted the moon position v.s. share prices and determined when to trade. It just goes beyond all technical indicators.

I sure do hope someone from FSM answers this! Definitely a good way for one broker to stand out from another if they offer something that is exclusive / pilot something new

You can reinvest your dividends back to your ETF but you have to do it manually, I don't think ETFs under RSPs offer this service

Is he a broker from Maybank KE? I know some brokers have rather credible track records.

The settlement date is the day that the transfer of cash or assets is completed and is usually a few days after the trade is complete - note that in Singapore this is T + 2 (used to be T + 3), and other markets will have different settlement dates. You'll have to pay by settlement date if you are buying, else your broker has the right to force sell for you and you will have to settle the difference. If you sold, then it's just a matter of waiting for your proceeds minus the costs to appear.
