Update on Margin Call Procedures
Dear CFD Clients,
16 Dec 2015

When a client's equity balance falls below the initial margin at the end of each market day, a margin call amount equivalent to the difference between equity balance and initial margin will be made.
You will be notified by your Trading Representative in such an event and will be given two business days to fulfill the margin call. You may do so via the following options:-

  • Cash at Maybank Kim Eng’s cashier counter
  • Electronic Payment for Shares (EPS) from your bank account before the official bank's cut-off time
  • Liquidating sufficient CFD positions to fulfill the margin call
Please send proof of the transfer or payment to your Trading Representative within two business days of the margin call to avoid any forced liquidation by the Maybank Kim Eng CFD Team.

Maybank Kim Eng reserves the right to force liquidate any position without prior notice in order to bring the margin call account back to required levels and Maybank Kim Eng shall not be liable for any losses incurred due to forced liquidation.

e-Learning Portal for Unlisted SIPs Now Available
Dear CFD Clients,
13 Mar 2015

You can now access the e-Learning Portal for Investors, jointly developed by Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) and Securities Association of Singapore (SAS). This portal educates investors on the basic concepts and risks of trading unlisted Specified Investment Products (SIPs). It includes a quiz at the end that tests your knowledge on the subject.

Before you can trade in SIPs, a Client Proficiency Assessment (CPA) must be conducted. Part VI of the CPA form now takes the ABS-SAS e-Learning Portal for Investors into consideration. Hence, if you previously did not fulfill the Educational Qualifications, Work Experience and Investment Experience requirements of the CPA but still wish to trade in unlisted SIPs, passing the necessary modules on the e-Learning Portal is an alternative way for you to fulfill the CPA.

  • depositing either with Maybank Kim Eng or a third party share certificates and the duly executed transfer forms thereof to the intent that Maybank Kim Eng is consequent thereto to have a security interest over such shares as are evidenced by such certificates;
  • executing all forms and documents and doing or causing to be done all acts and things as may be required by Maybank Kim Eng to attach and/or perfect any and every security interest which is intended by you to be and/or is and/or has been granted to and/or taken by Maybank Kim Eng over your shares;
  • giving good receipts and discharges for all documents of whatsoever nature which your Attorney is authorised to receive by this letter; and/or
  • generally taking all further steps which your Attorney may in your Attorney’s sole and absolute discretion deem to be necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes herein specified.
Please be assured that all instructions that you have made to your Trading Representative so far will not be affected.

Change in Margin Rates for KE CFD Counters - Effective 1 Sep 2014
Dear CFD Clients,
14 Aug 2014

We regularly review the margin rates for all CFD counters, to ensure that they are competitive, in line with regulatory standards, and reflective of current levels of market volatility and liquidity. We have recently concluded such an exercise, and there will be revisions to the margin rates of certain counters.

The margin rates for more than 1000 counters will be lowered, with emphasis on HK and US counters. There will also be a slight increase in the margin rates of about 350 counters, more specifically, on small cap HK & SG counters. You are strongly encouraged to see the list of counters with change in margin rates here, and to ensure that you have sufficient Free Equity should there be an increase in the margin rate of a counter you are holding.

The changes will take effect 1 September 2014.

Should you have further queries on the impact of the change in margin rates on your account, please feel free to call the CFD Team at 6536 2000, email us at cfd@maybank-ke.com.sg. or chat with us at www.kecfd.com using our 'live chat' function.

[IMPT] KECFD Market Orders No Longer Available for SG and HK Markets
Dear CFD Clients,

With immediate effect, Market Orders will no longer be available for Singapore and Hong Kong markets. Only Limit orders will be accepted.

Clients who have existing contingent orders with price types set as market orders will not be affected. However, should you choose to amend your existing market order, it will be saved as a limit order. You will need to enter a limit order price, instead of leaving it to the CFD platform to exit your position at the prevailing bid or ask price.

Note: Ensure your limit order price is less than 4.99% away from your trigger price. Otherwise, your order will get rejected by the platform.

Please call us at 65362000 should you have any queries.

Re-Launch of KE CFD
Dear KE CFD Client,
28 Jun 2012
Maybank Kim Eng is pleased to announce that our new CFD platform is now ready. We would like to thank you for your support since our launch in August 2008 and for your patience in the past few months. We have extensively reviewed the CFD business, with a view of delivering an improved product to you.

Some highlights:

1)   We will continue to offer Direct Market Access CFDs for ALL the markets that we cover. This means you will be able to trade into the underlying exchanges, place limit orders and participate in opening and closing auctions.

2)   Your counterparty risk will be Maybank Kim Eng at all times. Your funds will be kept in a customer segregated bank account in Singapore.

3)   Choice of two platforms: CFDTrader and CFDInvestor. While most of you will be familiar with CFDTrader, we are launching a lighter, faster version called CFD Investor. This version uses less bandwidth and results in less Java-related issues.

4)   Trade UK CFDs. This is a new market on top of our existing 8 markets (Singapore, Hong Kong, US, Australia, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan and Korea).

5)   Default commission for Singapore and Hong Kong CFDs has been lowered to 0.27% and 0.35% respectively (down from 0.30% and 0.40% previously).

6)   Processes such as account opening, uploading of funds etc. have been shortened considerably and made more efficient.

 

Our Commitment to Clients

Our clients have appreciated the fact that their monies and positions have not been compromised by the MF Global situation. Clients have not been forced to close out any positions and up till today, there are still some with open positions who are free to close out at anytime. KE CFD has also waived the closing commission and financing charges for all trades during this period.

 

Migration of Accounts

Your existing CFD account (funded or otherwise) will be migrated to the new platform. No action is required from you. This exercise will take place from 26 June to 3 July 2012.  You will receive a Welcome E-mail with your new login details, and your new password will be sent by post. Please call us at ext 6160 – 4 or e-mail us at cfd@maybank-ke.com.sg if you do not receive their User ID and Password by 9 July 2012.

You may wish to fund your account and start trading by logging on to www.kecfd.com.

 

Please note that clients who have not qualified to trade Specified Investment Products (which applies to CFD) will not be receiving a new UserID and Password. Do contact your Trading Representative to take the Client Proficiency Assessment.

 

Attend a CFD seminar

There will be a seminar for clients at our branch in Nex mall on 9 July (Mon); 6.30 - 8.30pm. Interested clients can register here .

 

Product Highlights Sheet

Attached is the new CFD Product Highlights Sheet, which amongst other things, sets out the risks of CFD trading. You should take some time to familiarize yourself with the highlighted risks before you start trading.

We look forward to having you trade CFDs with us again.

Trading Specified Investment Products
Dear KE CFD Customers,
7 Dec 2011

We are taking the opportunity to revamp our website and improve our CFD offering. You can look forward to some exciting upgrades when we are back online next year.

Clients who have existing open positions can close their positions or continue holding them if they wish, subject to maintenance of margin requirements.

Specified Investment Products (SIPs)

The Monetary Authority of Singapore has introduced new requirements for broking firms to formally assess their retail customer's investment knowledge and experience before selling certain investment products to the customer. These stronger measures and enhanced requirements have been imposed by MAS to further safeguard customers' interests. Under the new measures, brokers must conduct a Customer Knowledge Assessment to assess whether a customer has the relevant knowledge or experience to understand the risks and features of Contract for Differences (CFDs).

If you wish to qualify to continue trading CFDs, please visit any of our Customer Service Centres or our Investor Centre to fill the complete the CKA assessment form. Alternatively, you can download the form here and mail it to Kim Eng Securities Pte Ltd at:

KE CFD - Update in Reference to Latest MAS Statement
Dear KE CFD customers
3 Nov 2011
Reference is made to the MAS statement here and in particular to paragraph 4 thereof which states that MF Global Australia, counter party to MF Global Singapore has closed out all CFD positions resulting in MF Global Singapore's CFD positions being closed out on November 2.

Kim Eng would like to reassure all customers that this development in no way affects the ability of our clients to continue holding or closing out their open KE CFD positions, as communicated by KE CFD on October 31 and November 1. The solution that KE CFD devised and implemented on 2 November to address the lack of market access experienced by customers on November 1 does not involve MF Global and such solution can continue notwithstanding any further developments at MF Global, including the reported actions of MF Global Australia.

As at the start of business on 2 Nov 2011, KE CFD has provided access to clients who have existing open positions.

For clients with existing positions, please note the following:

1. We will not allow any new position; only closing out of existing open positions
2. Minimum initial margin will be maintained at 25% until further notice
3. Orders can only be placed offline through your Trading Representative
4. Orders need to to placed by 3.30pm for Hong Kong market and 4.30pm for Singapore market in order to be executed on same day
5. Commission will be waived during this period for the closing out of your positions.
6. All request to withdraw money from trust will be process and account payee cheque will be issued to client as per our normal rules with this product, subject to client having sufficient free equity

Due to the offline nature of execution, placing of trades and confirmation will be less expedient.

Please note that clients who wish to continue holding open positions may do so subject to maintenance of margin requirements. Their ability to do so is unaffected by any developments at MF Global.

We seek your understanding for the inconvenience caused.

US uptick rules for short sellers will be re-instated for stocks dropping more than 10% in a single session
Dear Clients,
US CFD - US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopting additional short selling restriction effective from May 10, 2010. SEC has approved the alternative uptick rule (Rule 201) on February 24, 2010. The adopted rule is a short sale-related restriction that will be triggered when the price of the stock has dropped more than 10 percent in one day from closing price of the previous trade day. When triggered it will restrict further short selling from driving down the price of a security which has already experience significant decline. It will enable long sellers to queue sell their shares before any short sellers once the rule is triggered. When the rule is triggered, short selling restriction will apply to all short sale orders in that security for the remainder of the day and the following day. This measure is intended to promote market stability and preserve investor confidence. [For more information refer to SEC Press Release (http://www.sec.gov/news/press/2010/2010-26.htm) and 334 page Official Release (http://www.sec.gov/rules/final/2010/34-61595.pdf)
