How to operate a margin account

After you have received the notication for margin account, you can use the account number and password to login to the trading system and begin to use your margin account.

You can use your margin account for the corresponding market. You can buy Hong Kong stocks, including those via Hong Kong and Shanghai Connect and Hong Kong and Shenzhen Connect. However, the commission can be higher compared to that for cash account, and you will also need to pay the interest using the credit.

You can transfer stocks and money from your cash account and apply for credit when you need it. You will have credit in your margin account after approval.

When you use your credit in your margin account for a transaction, interest will be counted immediately. The interest is proportion to the amount of credit being used. Please check the interest rate in the table for charges.
