blackjeanz Hey guys, I have a little question here about the transaction cost of shares trading, can sifus here give advice?

For example if my brokerage fees is 0.7% (minimum rm40), clearing fees 0.03%, stamp duty rm1 for every rm1000 (maximum rm200)

Let's assume that I made the following purchase in 1 day:

Stock A: 10,000 shares x RM4.52 = RM45,200 (gross value)
Stock B: 10,000 shares x RM0.21 = RM2,100 (gross value)
Stock C: 5,000 shares x RM64 = RM320,000 (gross value)

So what is the total transaction fees payable for this investment?

METHOD 1:

Stock A: (RM45,200 x 0.7%) + (RM45,200 x 0.03%) + RM46 stamp duty
= RM316.40 + RM13.56 + RM46
= RM375.96

Stock B: (RM2,100 x 0.7%)+ (RM2,100 x 0.03%) + RM3 stamp duty
= RM40 (RM14.70 < min. RM40) + RM0.63 + RM3
= RM43.63

Stock C: (RM320,000 x 0.7%) + (RM320,000 x 0.03%) + RM200 stamp duty (max)
=RM2,240 + RM96 + RM200
=RM2,536

Total transaction fees payable = RM375.96 + RM43.63 + RM2,536
= RM2955.60 (round up from RM2955.59)

METHOD 2:

(Gross value of Stock A + B + C) x 0.7% = RM367,300

BROKERAGE FEES
(Gross value of Stock A + B + C) x 0.7% = RM2,571.10

CLEARING FEES
(Gross value of Stock A + B + C) x 0.03% = RM110.20 (round up from RM110.19)

STAMP DUTY
(Gross value of Stock A + B + C) / RM1000 = RM368 (round up from RM367.30, but maximum is RM200, so we calculate only RM200)

Total transaction fees payable = RM2,571.10 + RM110.20 + RM200 (max.)
= RM2,881.30

So which method is actually the real method?
Or there is another method used to calculate the transaction cost other than these 2 methods?

Please help! I am confused =/
22/10/2014 17:34
alantan METHOD 1 is correct
22/10/2014 17:49
blackjeanz really?
then the stamp duty that I will be paying will be more than RM200 liao wor?
22/10/2014 20:00
acefate blackjeanz must be a student
22/10/2014 21:13
blackjeanz yes, indeed
my questions may sounds stupid but I think it's better to make it clear than pretending that u know everything when u'r not haha
