How can I set the target number of shares?
The target number of shares does not include manual purchase, bonus shares, and the number of stocks deposited through settlement instructions (SI / ISI). The system will only buy the relevant stocks according to the target number of shares you set.
Example 1: You deposit 300 shares in SI / ISI, and set the target number of shares to 1,000, and the total number of shares when you plan to meet the standard is 1,300.
Example 2: Your account has some odd shares (355 shares) and you want to consolidate the number of shares (1,000 shares), you can set the new instructions and the new target number of shares to 645 shares. Then the total number of shares will be 1,000 shares when the plan is set.
