SRS Trades

You need to open an SRS account  in order to trade in SGX with your SRS funds.

SRS trades are only applicable for your Cash Trading Account, are not applicable for Share Financing and Share Borrowing Accounts.

All securities listed on SGX, except ADRs, are tradable under the SRS scheme and will only be settled in SGD.

c)      Payment mode selected must be in SGD. If you are buying / selling “SPDR GOLD SHARES” (traded in USD) or ETFs (traded in USD) , the settlement currency has to be SGD

If you have selected the settlement currency as USD by mistake, you must call your Trading Representative immediately to amend settlement currency to SGD.

No contra is allowed for SRS trade.
