  7. A Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer will be eligible to receive their first Cash Rebate when such Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer meets the Balance Requirement and the Trading Requirement by the next account review date. For example: a new Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer opens an Account in February 2022 and funds his account with at least SGD10,000 on 20 February 2022. On 28 February 2022, the account review date, if the Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer has a cash balance of at least SGD10,000 in their account and has generated Trading Costs of SGD300 for the month of February 2022, we will apply a Cash Rebate of SGD300 to that Account within ten (10) business days from 1 March 2022, i.e. the first trading day of the following month.

  8. When you become a Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer before your first account review date, a grace period will apply such that you will not be required to meet the Trading Requirement from the date you open your account until the first account review date but you will still be entitled to receive a Cash Rebate for that period. For the avoidance of doubt, you will still be required to meet the Balance Requirement during that period. For example: a new Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer opens an Account on 15 February 2022 and funds his account with at least SGD10,000. The Customer will benefit from a grace period whereby as at 28 February 2022 (their first account review date) they will only require a cash balance of at least SGD10,000 in their account and they will not have to have generated Trading Costs of SGD250 in order to receive a Cash Rebate.

  9. For a Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer to continue participating in the Program and to receive a Cash Rebate each following month (up to a maximum of twelve (12) consecutive months), such Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer must meet both the Trading Requirement and Balance Requirement each month. For example: the Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer in the above example continues to conduct trades in March generating Trading Costs of SGD400; then on 31 March 2022 the next review date, if such Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer also maintains a cash balance of at least SGD10,000 in his account, he will then receive a Cash Rebate of SGD400 within ten (10) business days from 1 April 2022.

  10. We will apply the Cash Rebate to a Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer’s Account within ten (10) business days of the first trading day of the month following the month for which the Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer has met the Trading Requirement and Balance Requirement during the Program Period. The Cash Rebate can be withdrawn at any time.

  11. If a Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer does not meet the Trading Requirement or the Balance Requirement in any month during the course of the Program Period, such Trade Free for a Year Qualifying Customer’s participation in the Program shall automatically cease.
