How to Start Trading Stocks in Singapore!

To start to trade stocks in Singapore, you will be required to go through a simple sign-up process with a brokerage firm of your choice.

start trading stocks in singaporeThe invention of the Internet has brought about many changes in the way that we conduct our lives and our personal business. We can pay our bills online, shop online, bank online, and even date online! And of course, we can even buy and sell stocks online. Traders love having the ability to look at their accounts whenever they want to, and brokers like having the ability to take orders over the Internet, as opposed to the telephone.
All Singapore brokers and brokerage houses now offer online trading to their clients. Another great thing about trading online is that fees and commissions are often lower. However, while online trading is great, there are some drawbacks still. For instance, if you are new to investing, having the ability to actually speak with a broker can be quite beneficial. If you aren’t stock market savvy, online trading may be a dangerous thing for you. If this is the case, make sure that you learn as much as you can about trading stocks before you start trading online.
You should also be aware that you don’t have a computer with Internet access attached to you. You won’t always have the ability to get online to make a trade. You need to be sure that you can call and speak with a broker if this is the case, or be able to trade using your mobile phone. This is true whether you are an advanced trader or a beginner.
Singapore Brokerage Account
To start off, you will need to choose from one of the several brokerage firms around. Some popular brokerage firms include:
Depending on the firms, you may be asked to place a refundable opening deposit. Most brokers just require proof of earnings, i.e. with a payslip. Sometimes trading representatives or brokers may waive these requirement, or they may hold promotions or fairs which typically waive this as well.

Central Depository (CDP)
Besides an account at a brokerage, you’ll also need what is known as a Central Depository account. All stocks that you own are held in your CDP account. If you have never traded stocks before, you most likely do not own a CDP account, and your very first brokerage account will come with a CDP account opening form that you can fill up as well.
Electronic Payment for Shares (EPS)
In the past, any outstanding payment to your brokerage had to be settled in the form of cheques. This form of payment conveniently links your bank account to your brokerage, so that you can login into your Internet banking account and pay for any outstanding contracts there. This is highly recommended.

When you've got the basics covered and are still not convinced...

Some people have an unjustified fear of new technology and innovation, which is a little silly.. Just because you don't understand for example, how a refrigerator works, doesn't mean you should be afraid of it.
The same happens in binary options trading. When a potential trader feels he/she does not have enough knowledge of the trading world or in using our platform, this can put him of from exploring profitable opportunities and discovering new ways to make money.
The same goes for taking risks. You might be afraid of making a mistake. We're not saying that mistakes don't happen, but don't you take calculated risks every day? The most common risk by far is driving, think about it. The fastest way to get somewhere is by car. But it's much safer to walk. This is a risk we all take every day. but we know it's worth it!
Wouldn't you be willing to take a minor risk to reach financial freedom?
We suggest you start with a small amount. You can deposit as low as 200€. At 10€ a trade this should give you enough to see for yourself if you are able to make money trading binary options.
And to show our commitment, we are prepared to offer you a special bonus, an extra amount added to your balance just to try us out.
Remember, it's your money and you have no time limit or commitment for that matter. You have the possibility to withdraw your funds at any given time.
Still not convinced? Register now and we will set up a meeting to answer any questions you might have, explain how you can build for a better future and train you to become the best trader you can be. Hearing us out won't cost you a dime!

Follow these 3 steps ...
Start by opening an account on OptionYard. There are many different sites on which you can trade binary options, but OptionYard is by far the most intuitive and the easiest to use for beginners. That's the site I use to trade binary options on a daily basis to grow my capital following the strategy explained in the video above.
If you want to trade binary options actively, I strongly recommend that you also open an account on OptionYard. I personnally have an account on both sites and they complete each other very well, which is why I definitely recommended having an account on both sites if you intend to trade binary options seriously.
The trading system shown here is based on trend following, a strategy widely used by many professional traders and recognized for its effectiveness. An asset rises or falls when pushed in that direction by large financial institutions that influence the financial markets such as investment funds and banks. The principle of this method is very simple:

If the recent history of an asset shows a significant and constant increase, the probability that it will continue to rise in the near future is higher than the probability that it will turn around and go the other way. We would therefore invest on the asset going up.
Obviously, the same logic applies in the case of a decline. Here are the 3 different trends that can be spotted on charts:
Upside Trend:
The price is going up, we buy
Downside Trend:
The price is going down, we sell
Neutral Trend:
The price is moving sideways, we don't do anything
Even if you follow the system perfectly, it is definitely normal to lose some of these trades you get into. Indeed, you just can't expect to win all the time, as no trader in the world can do that!

The method of trend following will enable you to make more winning trades than losing ones, which enables you to make significant gains on your account in the long run. There may be a bad day where you will make several losing trades, that is why it is important to follow this strict rule of investment: each position you open should not represent more than 5% of your capital.
If you have $200 on your account, each open position should be $10 maximum
If you have $500 on your account, each open position should be $25 maximum
If you have $1,000 on your account, each open position should be $50 maximum
If you have $2,000 on your account, each open position should be $100 maximum
Let's get started...

Minimum Deposit: 

"By luck, I stumbled upon your site, and of course I wanted to try it out. I went on to deposit $500 on OptionYard, then opened 5 positions and won 4. Took out the $500 and still have the profit of $288 to trade with. This is a great system you got there Sir, I definitely owe you one."

Jacelyn Tay - Singapore
"I began with $200 on OptionYard and I went down to $100 the first day. I rushed too much on the trades without following the trends you suggested in the system. Then I began following them seriously and won, and won, and won some more the next day! ... Thank you! I didn't believe this would work so fast, It just seemed too simple, you know? Now I am extremely confident as I have already tripled my starting capital! It's amazing how effective the system is."

John Bates - Melbourne, Australia
"I didn't know what to think about this system at first, as I have always looked at trading as too complicated and only for professionals... obviously I was wrong. I started off only trading $100 and made a loss in the first week as I didn't follow the system exact (I have no idea why I love doing things the hard way...). After following the system step by step I made $3220 in the next month!! This has given me so much financial freedom."

Julia Moore - Chicago, USA
"Just started trading binary options a month ago. I was very skeptical at first as i never really saw myself as a trader but now I earn more than $500 per day and get to spend much more time with my boys and wife. The system is so simple: just put the odds on your side. I am now trading full time on 4 different platforms and it's so good to live without having to worry about bills everyday.".
