Singapore’s first online stocks trading platform - POEMS (Phillip’s Online Electronic Mart System) is Phillip Securities’ flagship trading platform and this year sees the introduction of POEMS 2.0 which is the improved version with advanced features and tools. To allow more investors to experience this new platform, Phillip Securities is proud to bring the POEMS 2.0 Stock Challenge to the masses, which was previously only open to tertiary students in Singapore for over 7 years.
Open to the general public in Asia and the region, the POEMS 2.0 Stock Challenge will appeal to savvy investors as well as those new to trading because participants can choose to take part through either a virtual account or through their ‘live’ Phillip Margin accounts. Phillip Securities is also partnering with Macquarie Securities in Singapore for the ‘Warrant Challenge’ category.
The POEMS 2.0 Stock Challenge was officially launched on 11th January during the POEMS 1Q14 Market Outlook Seminar, held in Singapore, by Mr Luke Lim, Head of Corporate Development, Phillip Securities who declared this year’s Stock Challenge to be “bigger, better and more exciting!” and encouraged the 300-strong audience to register on the day itself.
The competition period for the POEMS 2.0 Stock Challenge is from 3rd March until 30th May, with total prizes worth over S$130,000. Each participant gets a starter kit worth over S$200 upon successful registration with trading tools sponsored by ShareInvestor, Shares Investment, ChartNexus, iBillionaire, Recognia and Your Trading Edge magazine to help kick start their trading and investment journey. As a way to educate young investors, Phillip Securities and selected Community Sponsors will run a series of educational seminars that participants can attend for free.
The Phillip-Macquarie Warrant Challenge which offers $30,000 in regular cash prizes over the course of the 3 months gives participants the additional option to play the challenge via the mobile phone app TradeHero. The app will have features to help participants with the warrant selection process and also receive instant notifications of the trades that warrant experts are making on the Challenge.
To further encourage more interaction from the professionals, there are 4 appointed spokespeople for the POEMS 2.0 Stock Challenge – Joshua Tan, Head of Phillip Securities Research; Kenneth Koh, Markets & Equities Analyst, Phillip Securities Research; Collin Seow and Robin Ho, both who are Top Tier Traders and Remisiers with Phillip Securities. Participants and traders in general are encouraged to join in the discussion with these spokespeople using the hashtag #poems2 via social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
Making the competition more exciting is the PhillipCapital Grand Lucky Draw, which is running concurrently with the POEMS 2.0 Stock Challenge. By joining the POEMS 2.0 Stock Challenge, participants get a chance to win the Grand Lucky Draw Prize* of a brand new Mazda 6 worth S$90,000*.
