Step 3: Within the Webull app, select “Open Account” (middle tab at the bottom of the screen), and follow the steps.

  • I logged into SingPass MyInfo to autofill some parts of the forms.

After setting your trading password, you will be able to fund your account.

Clarifications on ‘Welcome Rewards’ promotion mechanics

Are fractional share trades eligible to qualify for the welcome rewards?

[25 May 2022]: I asked Webull via the in-app ‘Help Center’ and they confirmed that fractional share trades are considered qualifying trades to meet the requirements to receive the welcome rewards.

“Trading in fractional shares counts as a qualified transaction. You need to meet the requirement of the holding amount over SGD 2000 in the holding period of 30 days at the same time. You also need to make 5 qualified transactions in total during the holding period.”

Do I qualify for welcome rewards if I deposited S$2000, bought some shares, and my portfolio subsequently fell below S$2000?

[25 May 2022]: I asked Webull via the in-app ‘Help Center’ and they confirmed that the ’total deposit amount’ minus the ’total withdrawal amount’ needs to be not less than S$2000 during the holding period of 30 days.

So you do not have to be worried if you deposited exactly S$2000 and the price of the shares you bought fell, causing your portfolio value to dip below S$2000.

No trading support for Singapore market (SGX)

As of launch date in May 2022, Webull does not support trading in the Singapore market (SGX). Hopefully they will add this capability soon.

Responsive ‘Help Center’

From my experiences in May 2022, the ‘Help Center’ responded to my queries within an hour which I feel is pretty good.

Webull Desktop App

In September 2022, Webull launched its Webull Desktop App. As an alternative to the mobile app for users who prefer the big screen, it offers:

  • A fully customisable trading experience
  • Powerful, easy-to-use trading widgets
  • Flexible charting tools

Educate yourself on investing

I would strongly recommend you register a FREE account with SGX’s Online Education Programme and complete the basic courses first if you are new to investing.

Staying safe from scammers

Be wary of scams that can take place in the form of online stock recommendations from unofficial sources or informal chat groups.

Scammers might impersonate real people from genuine financial services firms to tempt you into investing in any recommended stocks/investment products. Some scammers might use spoofed or unofficial social media accounts to spread and disseminate false information.

You can protect yourself and others by observing the following:

  • Change your privacy setting in your messaging apps to prevent others from adding you to random investment chat groups.
  • Be wary of stock tips/ recommendations from unofficial sources (e.g. Social Media platforms/Messaging App)
  • Do your research before investing in any investment product
  • Check the credentials of the supposed company or representatives using sources such as MAS Financial Institutions Directory, Register of representatives and Investor Alert List.

Disclaimer

All investments involve risks and are not suitable for every investor. The value of securities may fluctuate and as a result, clients may lose more than their original investment.

Margin trading increases the risk of loss and clients’ losses may exceed the deposits placed. The past performance of a security or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns.

Keep in mind that while diversification may help spread risk it does not assure a profit, or protect against the loss, in a down market.

There is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing.

Any reward including shares, fractional or otherwise, which are received via any promotion campaign does not constitute as an invitation, inducement, recommendation, suggestion, or solicitation to investing.
