For U.S. Market

All brokerage accounts are held under the U.S. tax bracket of 30% withholding, which is imposed by the U.S. tax regulator- IRS. The tax will be imposed on dividend payments and the custodian will perform the withholding automatically. This means, dividend payments are always net of tax when credited to your brokerage account with Citibank.

With effect from May 2011, submitting a Form W-8BEN to Citibank Brokerage, may qualify your account for a lower rate of withholding if the U.S. has a tax treaty with your home country. In order to have the correct amount of tax withheld - which can vary from 0% to 30%, depending on the accountholder's country of residence - a non-U.S. person must have provided to Citibank Brokerage with a valid Form W-8BEN that has the "Claim of Tax Treaty Benefits" section duly completed.

Dividends distributed by foreign corporations listed in the U.S. markets are subject to different tax rates. The tax rate may vary for different countries (country in which that corporation is located) and also the different types of business entities.

Note: A non-U.S. person's residency status must be re-certified every 3 years, or when any information on the original Form W-8BEN has changed.

SEC stands for Securities And Exchange Commission, the federal agency created by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to administer that act and the Securities Act of 1933. The statues administered by the SEC are designed to promote full public disclosure and protect the investing public against fraudulent and manipulative practices in the securities markets. Generally, most issues of securities offered interstate commerce or through the mails must be registered with the SEC. (See Maloney Act, Securities Act Amendments of 1975, Securities Exchange Act of 1934).

All trades are executed by Citigroup Global Markets or other brokerage firms and not Citibank Singapore Limited. Citibank Singapore Limited will take your instructions for transmission to such brokerage firms.

Before a "Buy" order can be accepted, Citibank Brokerage will check your Cash Trading Account for sufficient funds and earmark the full amount for settlement.

Before a "Sell" order can be accepted, your securities account is checked for sufficient sellable stock quantity.

You can use "Stock Symbol Guide" to search stock quotes by entering company name with the help of "Containing" and "Starting With" functions.

For Buy Orders, you can only place limit orders (The highest price you are willing to buy) across all markets.

For Sell Orders, you can place limit orders (The lowest price you are willing to sell) and stop loss limit orders across all markets.

Market Order is available for U.S. Market sell orders only. When a Market Order for a "Sell" order is placed, the order will be partially or fully filled at the prevailing bid price. Note: The execution price may not be the same as the last traded price as stock prices are volatile and it may have moved upon execution.

For "Sell" order, the "Limit price" which you indicate will be the lowest price you want to sell your securities. As for "Buy" order, it will be the highest price you want to buy the securities.

This is the triggered price for your sell order to be sent to the market for queuing/execution.

For Buy Orders, you can only place limit orders (The highest price you are willing to buy) across all markets.

For Sell Orders, you can place limit orders (The lowest price you are willing to sell) and stop loss limit orders across all markets.

Market Order is available for U.S. Market sell orders only. When a Market Order for a "Sell" order is placed, the order will be partially or fully filled at the prevailing bid price. Note: The execution price may not be the same as the last traded price as stock prices are volatile and it may have moved upon execution.

Stop Loss Limit Order is a normal order with respect to a sale instruction (with a specified Lowest Selling Price and a pre-set Stop Loss Price) which you may place with the Singapore, U.S. and Hong Kong markets for processing during the continuous trading session on any relevant trading day.

As the last traded price is used to determine if the Stop Loss Price has been triggered, the opening price of the continuous trading session may be adopted for the earliest triggering of a stop loss order placed on the relevant trading day.

Once the order is triggered at the Stop Loss Price on any trading day, the sale instruction will be carried out at or above the Lowest Selling Price in the same way as a normal order except that any unfilled order (in whole or in part) will lapse at the end of the same trading day and will not be carried forward to the following trading day. Therefore, even if the Stop Loss price has been triggered, the stop loss order may not be executed (in whole or in part.)

Your "Good for the day" order expires at the end of the trading day. "Good till date" (GTD) order is valid up to 30 calendar days across all markets.

Remember to check your order status at the end of the trading day. If you would like to continue with a lapsed order on the next trading day, please submit a new order.
