        Stock Paper Trading Rules

        1. Paper trading supports five markets: the Hong Kong stock market, the US stock market, the China A-shares market, the Singapore stock market, and the Canada stock market. Anyone can paper trade in any market. By tapping the "Get Now" button, you can open a virtual account for each market and will have initial assets of 1 million HKD, 1 million USD, 1 million CNY, 1 million SGD, and 1 million CAD in each account, respectively.

        2. The product types you can paper trade are limited to stocks, warrants, CBBCs (Callable Bull/Bear Contracts), and other products listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange for the Hong Kong stock market, and to stocks for the US stock market, the Singapore stock market, the Canada stock market, and the China A-shares market.

        3. Trading hours: Hong Kong stock market: 9:30 AM-12: 00 PM, 1:00 PM-4:00 PM (China Standard Time); US stock market: 9:30 AM-4:00 PM (Eastern Time); China A-shares market: 9:30 AM-11:30 AM, 1:00 PM-3:00 PM (China Standard Time); Singapore stock market: 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, 1:00 PM-5:00 PM (China Standard Time); Canada stock market: 9:30 AM-4:00 PM (Eastern Time).

        4. Paper trading supports dividends and bonus shares, but is not available for IPO shares subscription, rights issue, or placement.

        5. Paper trading adopts the rules of order matching. The highest bid (best bid) and the lowest ask (best ask) are the best prices for matching. A buy order at a price higher than the best bid or a sell order at a price lower than the best ask satisfies the matching conditions and will be automatically queued for execution.

        6. The paper trading system may not necessarily be consistent with the real stock market. In case of any inconsistency, data in the paper trading system shall prevail.

        7. If you hold the stock of a listed company that is delisted for any reason, you may no longer trade such stock in later trading days, and the system will return the virtual funds to your virtual account at the last closing price.

        8. The fees charged for paper trading may differ from actual trading in live accounts. For actual investments, please refer to the fee structure of the broker dealer which service your jurisdiction.
