Frequently Asked Questions
Can I contra (buy and sell on the same day) with my CPF/SRS trades?
Contra is not supported by the banks. The bank may affirm your buy position for a settlement if you have sufficient investable amount but the SELL position will be revoked to cash settlement and is subjected to buy-in by SGX unless you have sufficient holdings in your account to satisfy your delivery obligations.
