There is an insider interview about Softbank's dare-to-say-"no"-to-Son former executive. Interesting reads ahead.

I am testing out withdrawing USD from IBKR to DBS my account:
2 options provided by IBKR, one is "Bank wire" and the other is "Connect Your Bank via ACH". Which one should I choose? My intention is to keep some USD in DBS my account on top of existing HKD and SGD.

ok, thanks. Just found out that DBS could be charging SGD10 for incoming TT. In that case a cheaper option is to convert from USD to SGD in IBKR and withdraw SGD directly from IBKR to DBS my account. The downside with this is can only keep SGD.

Just keep in ibkr. Now ibkr giving interest on USD. Why do you red to move your USD around?

I don't think DBS giving any interest. If you are DBS Treasures can waive. But need to call your RM.

OK, was thinking of withdrawing USD so that in future can use the linked debit card for direct USD transaction (e.g. online purchase or overseas travel).

I didn't know that IBKR is giving interest for USD balance, then at least can keep there while waiting for trading opportunities..

In celebration of the upcoming World Smile Day on 7th of October smile.gif, something amusing to brighten your day while I read the above book.

The author quoted an old book "Buyout", published back in 2001 and the author, Rick Rickersten, private equity deal practitioner helped translate some "complex" financial jargon commonly encountered in private equity pitchbooks/deal making in layman terms.

Read all these in this "Glossary of Investment Banker Speak". You will find them useful in your own evaluation of companies in the future when conducting fundamental analysis of corporations.

21 years has since gone, yet surprisingly the "translations" are pretty much applicable to this day.

UK gilt market was nearing a Lehman moment yesterday. Volumes dried up and the BOE just intervened after big banks called up before a fire sale by the pension funds could start.

IBKR is this one?

sorry, not really familiar with the jargon

how about buy singapore REIT? using the same method? or use my trading stock trading account/platform?

Yes that one. Get your IB account set up first and deposit SGD, then we can guide you on how to buy SREITs.

One step at a time is better for starters. nod.gif

Follow these guides:



https://ringgitfreedom.com/investing/beginn...-from-malaysia/

SREITs are purchased via IBKR or any other brokerage accounts you own.
