With the addition of the OCO order type, you can now submit 2 orders simultaneously to either take profit or cut loss.
Definition: An order stipulating that if one part of the order is executed, the other is automatically cancelled.
Usage: To set a limit order to take profit and a stop limit order to cut loss.
To select the OCO option, click on “More Trading Options” to extend the trade ticket to include Related Orders options. (OCO is currently only available on SGX, HKEx and US exchanges)
An example to illustrate profit taking with an OCO order
A client has a long position on counter ABC at $3.50.
He submits an OCO order consisting of a limit SELL order set at $3.90 (order 1) to take profit, and a stop-limit SELL order set at $3.40 (order 2) to cut any possible losses.
As the price climbs and reaches $3.90, the OCO is triggered, causing order 1 to be executed, thus cancelling the stop-limit order to sell at $3.40 (order 2), which might otherwise be triggered should the price of the counter ABC drop to $3.40.
An example to show how an OCO order can be used to minimise losses
A client has a long position on counter XYZ at $1.12.
He submits an OCO order consisting of a limit SELL order set at $1.14 (order 1) and a stop-limit SELL order set at $1.06 (order 2).
As the market price of the counter starts to drop rapidly and hits $1.06, this executes the stop-limit order (order 2), which in turn triggers the OCO to cancel the limit order with the limit price of $1.14 (order 1).
Charting on POEMS Mercury has been updated to include Corporate Action Adjustments and a new technical indicator, NATR (Normalised Average True Range).
Corporate Action Adjustments (for SG stocks)
Corporate actions such as share split or share consolidation can create price gaps in charts that can be disruptive when you perform your technical analysis. For example, a share split of 3-for-1 will cause the price to become one-third of what it used to be, creating a large gap on the chart. This may create seemingly bearish signals.
Therefore, we provide the option of adjusting the historical price data to ensure that all price movements on our charts are caused by pure market forces for more informed Technical Analysis. Simply right click anywhere on the chart and change ‘Chart Data’ to adjusted.
New Technical Indicator – NATR (Normalised Average True Range)

A copy of the Prospectus and PHS are available from PCM, any of its Participating Dealers (“PDs“) for the ETF, or any of its authorised distributors for the unit trust managed by PCM.
An ETF is not like a typical unit trust as the units of the ETF (the “Units“) are to be listed and traded like any share on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (“SGX-ST”). Listing on the SGX-ST does not guarantee a liquid market for the Units which may be traded at prices above or below its NAV or may be suspended or delisted. Investors may buy or sell the Units on SGX-ST when it is listed. Investors cannot create or redeem Units directly with PCM and have no rights to request PCM to redeem or purchase their Units. Creation and redemption of Units are through PDs if investors are clients of the PDs, who have no obligation to agree to create or redeem Units on behalf of any investor and may impose terms and conditions in connection with such creation or redemption orders. Please refer to the Prospectus of the ETF for more details.
Investments are subject to investment risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. The purchase of a unit in a fund is not the same as placing your money on deposit with a bank or deposit-taking company. There is no guarantee as to the amount of capital invested or return received. The value of the units and the income accruing to the units may fall or rise. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of the future or likely performance of the Products. There can be no assurance that investment objectives will be achieved.
Where applicable, fund(s) may invest in financial derivatives and/or participate in securities lending and repurchase transactions for the purpose of hedging and/or efficient portfolio management, subject to the relevant regulatory requirements. PCM reserves the discretion to determine if currency exposure should be hedged actively, passively or not at all, in the best interest of the Products.
The regular dividend distributions, out of either income and/or capital, are not guaranteed and subject to PCM’s discretion. Past payout yields and payments do not represent future payout yields and payments. Such dividend distributions will reduce the available capital for reinvestment and may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Products. Please refer to <www.phillipfunds.com> for more information in relation to the dividend distributions.
