What is mid-day trading break that is being offered by SGX?
From 13 November 2017, there will be a mid-day trading break from 1200h to 1300h, during which orders will not be matched but participants may enter, amend or cancel orders. An indicative equilibrium price (IEP) will be published to provide an indication of the market level during the break, which ends with an auction. Continuous trading resumes at 1pm.
This change addresses the preference of some market participants for shorter trading hours while retaining significant overlap in trading hours with key markets in Asia. The break also allows trading representatives to engage their clients or for issuers to make announcements during this period.

Changes to General Terms and Conditions Governing PDPA and FATCA
We are making changes to our General Terms and Conditions and have summarised the changes below:
Singapore Personal Data Protection Act ("PDPA")
We would like you to understand the purposes for which we may collect, use or disclose your personal data. We would like to assure you that we value your privacy and your personal data will continue to be kept confidential and secure in accordance with PDPA, which comes into effect from 2 July 2014.
U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act ("FATCA")

Our Affiliated Companies, including Maybank Singapore and Etiqa Singapore, will be able to reach out to you to provide you with information on products and services which you might be interested in.

Please fill up the form and mail back to us with the Business Reply Envelope at the back of the form.
What are the electronic trading risks that I need to take note of?
The speed and quality of your internet connection will affect the performance and accuracy of live prices on our online trading platforms and mobile trading applications. Broadband internet connection is recommended for online trading.
Always keep your internet trading password confidential and change it regularly. Clear your browser's cache and history after each session so that your account information is removed. You are advised not to use your browser's "Auto Complete" function to save your User ID and Password as this function stores and lists possible matches from entries that you have typed previously.
Virus, Spywares and Adwares
Always install the latest anti-virus software and spyware programs on your computer or mobile. Regularly scan your computer or mobile to quarantine and delete any Virus, Spyware or Adware that may be present. Avoid downloading programs and email attachments from suspicious unknown sources.
Phishing is an act of acquiring sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. It is typically carried out by email or instant messaging, and often directs users to enter details at a website.
NEVER reveal your password to anyone. Be suspicious of any email or instant message asking you to provide sensitive account information. If you receive such emails or instant messages, do not reply or click on the links in the email or instant message.
Wireless networking works by sending information over radio waves so it can be more vulnerable to intruders. Avoid using unsecured Wi-Fi networks (i.e. Public Wi-Fi) as cyber attackers can capture information passing through unsecured Wi-Fi networks, including your credentials.
In the electronic trading world, you may encounter situations such as being unable to withdraw erroneous orders in time due to the speed of the internet connection, or experience delays in order transmission and confirmation of order execution.
Please contact your Trading Representative or our Customer Service if you require any assistance.
