Hi all
I am in the midst of transferring my sg, hk, us stock holdings from fsm one to ibkr. 
Which option should I choose for the list (as attached)?
Can anyone advise? Are all these transfer options free?

Hi Red,
I had not done a transfer before so I am unable to advise on this. This is what I found on IB support:

I transferred my holdings to Tiger instead (and one week later IBKR says zero account minimum fees -_______-)

From what I know, FSMOne has no transfer fees, and it takes weeks to a few months to get the shares from FSMOne to Tiger.

What I did was raise the stock deposit request from Tiger, and then fill up the form from FSMOne (Letter of Intent).
Hope my experience helps.

Thanks Jieren. Haha I know right… Brokers can change their terms. As unpredictable as the market.

I was hoping to get onboard ibkr to dip my toes into options.

Anyway I have enquired. For investors who have non US stocks, they would need to choose the basic FOP transfer. And yup like what u mentioned, I also have to initiate the transfer request to fsmone using Letter of intent. No fees incurred in both brokers.

My only problem is ibkr complicated UI. I like fsm user friendly one. Not sure if I will regret my choice :(

I am using Thinkorswim now and Ninjatrader in the past, I actually found the interfaces like those more like home ^^”

I am actually quite frustrated by the Moomoo Shopee like UI (but they offer odd lots in HK)
