[Post 96] Learning investing/trading together part 21:How to purchase a stock?(Standard chartered) part 2

Continue from the last Learning investing/trading together post ...

Some key term to note...

Trading A/C No:
  • should have been auto fill
Counter code:
  • Stock code as the name implies, SPDR STI ETF(ES3)
  • Click buy to buy stocks and click if you are selling the stock
Order quantity:
  • 100=SGX( 1 lot size)
Buy order price:
  • The price that i want to buy the shares at
Order value:
  • Order quantity x Buy order price
Order type:
  • The below chart does a good job of explaining the various order type
  • Market order-Buy or sell at the current Ask price(Order get filled immediately)
  • Limit order-Buy or sell at a specific price(Order filled depend on the price you key in, will explain later in the post)
  • Always choose Limit order!!!
Valid for(until):
  • A Day order is a limit order good for that business day only. If the order is not filled by the end of the trading day, the order will expire. 
  • This is the order we are going for, for simplicity sake.
Settlement amount:
  • The settlement account should be fixed
9)Key in order quantity

I have key in 100 shares
SGX(lot size)=100 shares

10)Key in the Buy order price

The price that I would like to bid:$3.274

You may ask why $3.274?

Remember the offer from the last post,which states 3.275?
  • What i am doing here is trying to bid lower at 3.275 by putting the bid price at $3.274 but... this may not get my order to fulfill instantly and my order will be added to the queue
  • This is like trying to bargain with a shop seller at a market to buy an item(e.g fish) which is stated as selling for $3.275, but you want to buy it cheaper at $3.274
Can you bid at 3.275 or higher?
  • Yes, you can put the bid price at $3.275 or higher(Note: this will get your order fill instantly because you are purchasing the stock at the selling price(Ask or Offer))
  • This is just like buying an item (e.g fish) at a stated price from the shop seller at the market without any question asked, you hand over your money and off you go
What does it mean by having my order added to the queue?
  • Since there is no seller willing to sell(ask) at the price you want(bid), your order is added to a queue
  • A queue is like a database where they store everybody offer whose order is not filled, the order is more likely to fill quickly if you key in the price nearer to their Ask price(selling price)
11)Click the submit button after keying in,you will be shown the confirmation form below

  6. Halo semuanya, Nama saya Siska wibowo saya tinggal di Surabaya di Indonesia, saya seorang mahasiswa, saya ingin menggunakan kesempatan ini untuk mengingatkan semua pencari pinjaman untuk sangat berhati-hati karena ada banyak perusahaan pinjaman penipuan dan kejahatan di sini di internet , Sampai saya melihat posting Bapak Suryanto tentang Nyonya Esther Patrick dan saya menghubunginya melalui email: (

    Beberapa bulan yang lalu, saya putus asa untuk membantu biaya sekolah dan proyek saya tetapi tidak ada yang membantu dan ayah saya hanya dapat memperbaiki beberapa hal yang bahkan tidak cukup, jadi saya mencari pinjaman online tetapi scammed.

    Saya hampir tidak menyerah sampai saya mencari saran dari teman saya Pak Suryanto memanggil saya pemberi pinjaman yang sangat andal yang meminjamkan dengan pinjaman tanpa jaminan sebesar Rp200.000.000 dalam waktu kurang dari 24 jam tanpa tekanan atau tekanan dengan tingkat bunga rendah 2 %. Saya sangat terkejut ketika saya memeriksa rekening bank saya dan menemukan bahwa nomor saya diterapkan langsung ditransfer ke rekening bank saya tanpa penundaan atau kekecewaan, segera saya menghubungi ibu melalui (

    Dan juga saya diberi pilihan apakah saya ingin cek kertas dikirim kepada saya melalui jasa kurir, tetapi saya mengatakan kepada mereka untuk mentransfer uang ke rekening bank saya, karena saya berjanji bahwa saya akan membagikan kabar baik sehingga orang bisa mendapatkan pinjaman mudah tanpa stres atau penundaan.

    Yakin dan yakin bahwa ini asli karena saya memiliki semua bukti pemrosesan pinjaman ini termasuk kartu ID, dokumen perjanjian pinjaman, dan semua dokumen. Saya sangat mempercayai Madam ESTHER PATRICK dengan penghargaan dan kepercayaan perusahaan yang sepenuh hati karena dia benar-benar telah membantu hidup saya membayar proyek saya. Anda sangat beruntung memiliki kesempatan untuk membaca kesaksian ini hari ini. Jadi, jika Anda membutuhkan pinjaman, silakan hubungi Madam melalui email: (

    Anda juga dapat menghubungi saya melalui email saya di ( jika Anda merasa kesulitan atau menginginkan prosedur untuk mendapatkan pinjaman

    Sekarang, yang saya lakukan adalah mencoba untuk memenuhi pembayaran pinjaman bulanan yang saya kirim langsung ke rekening bulanan Nyonya seperti yang diarahkan. Tuhan akan memberkati Nyonya ESTHER PATRICK untuk Segalanya. Saya bersyukur
