Phillip Capital's Laura Chia (Head of Client Services) - Ask Me Anything (AMA)

Hi guys,

Laura Chia, Head of Client Services at Phillip Capital, will be monitoring this thread for any questions related to Phillip Futures.

Please keep in mind that some customer service/technical support issues are best handled through proper channels.

Laura Chia is the head of Client Services at PhillipCapital, where she coordinates with the various internal departments to address the needs of their customers. She also maintains relationships with brokers and institutional clients and works closely with them from onboarding to solving daily issues. Laura started her career at Oscar Mayer as a marketing spokesperson and later moved on to a public relations agency. She has been with PhillipCapital for four years and holds a Series 3 license.

PhillipCapital is a Chicago-based futures commission merchant (FCM) that is part of the PhillipCapital Group, based in Singapore since 1975. PhillipCapital provides customers with access to both the major and emerging commodity markets, boasting memberships with 28 global exchanges through the PhillipCapital Group network and connects to others via carrying broker relationships. PhillipCapital offers a wide selection of futures trading platforms and is one of two FCMs to have a clearing relationship with NinjaTrader Brokerage.

In addition to this thread, I will also be asking Laura to stop by on occasion for a casual webinar session so members can ask their questions and receive live feedback. The date/time of those sessions will be announced here in this thread.

You can find more on Phillip Capital's website:

Feel free to ask any questions below and we'll do our best to get them answered.

The futures io "AMA" (Ask Me Anything) series is by invitation only. The purpose of the thread is to provide easy access for forum members to engage with the service providers in the industry. Phillip Capital is also a futures io site sponsor.

The session was very informative, Thanks a ton for arranging it Mike.

Is prop trading such a big issue? Wouldn't most companies be engaging in some kind of prop trading?

I think it was fantastic. The tools shared to find more about a broker capitalization, infringements, etc. were great.

Thanks Mike for arranging the Webinar! Appreciate it!

I have some questions for Phillip Capital and would like Lynette to provide more information in the Q&A session:

Hi I am lynette and laura is out of commission. so here are the answers.
1. Can I trade HSI futures? (or even Hong Kong stocks?)
YOu can trade HSI futures but not Hong Kong stocks at Phillip Capital US . We are still in the process of implementing non-us stocks for customers in the US.

2. If so, does Phillip Captial provide tick-by-tick live data on the HSI futures/HK stocks? free or how much?
3. under Ninjatrader 8?

RIght now, you can only have HSI futures through CQG, and not Ninja 8. THe pricing is below.

4. any difference/benefit vs using its Hong Kong branch

If you reside in Hong Kong, you should open in Hong Kong so that they can better service you there. It would be easier for wire transfers if you live in hong kong to deal with them there. They also can provide hong Kong stocks for you.

If you are a US resident , then you shoudl open the account in the US.

Thanks.

Thanks in advance!




HKFE can only trade on CQG, market data fee as below

HKFE Delay: $5.00 per month
HKFE Level 1: $9.00 per month
HKFE Level 2 $15.00 per month
