The minimum online trading commission for the "Frequent Trade" charging scheme is HK$0.01. The scheme charges differently from those on the fee schedule for general clients, including but not limited to:

  1. The minimum online trading commission for "Frequent Trade" is HK$0.01, while the minimum charges for general chargeable services are listed on the fee schedule.

  2. The online trading commission rate for "Frequent Trade" (0.1%) is higher than the general charge rate (0.0675%). Clients can consider whether to participate in the plan.

The "Frequent Trade" charging scheme calculates commission separately for every partial or fully executed trade on the same stock.

**

The preferential interest rate is only applicable to the overdue amount within the marginable value. P refers to Chong Hing Bank Prime Rate.
