MERITS OF THE HISA LINK APPLICATION
It offers greater investor control.
Using Hisa Link traders can trade when they want, unlike conventional trading, an investor may have to work with a delay depending on when she is able to contact her broker and when the broker is able to place her order. Hisa Link allows nearly instantaneous transactions. Also, investors are able to review all of their options instead of depending on a broker to tell them the best bets for their money. You can monitor your investments in real time.
No time restrictions
Investors can have access to their accounts 24 hours a day seven day a week. While trading isn’t open all day, this can still provide investors with numerous advantages. Traditional stock offices had hours of operation. If investors want to look over their account at 8pm, they can.
Manage your own portfolio
Investors are able to log into our Hisa Link, where they are able to view the fluctuations of their stocks, and buy and sell as they deem necessary. This much more attractive than having to call a broker on the phone to get updates on a portfolio and make trades. The ability to manage a portfolio from home also means that people no longer have to worry about making appointments with a broker to make trades.
More Control and Flexibility
Time is often of the essence when you trade stocks, so the speed of using Hisa Link is a benefit to many investors. With Hisa Link, you can execute a trade almost immediately. Traditional brick-and mortar brokers might require appointments, either online, over the phone or in person, just to initiate a trade. The time involved in such transactions is an inconvenience in the best of circumstances and can actually cost you money in the worst scenarios.
Request Payment for Shares Sold
After a sale order is executed, an investor can request payment on Hisa Link. The system displays the request on our end and payment processed T+3 days after an order is executed. This saves investors the hassle of coming to the office to request for payment or making phone calls for the same to be done.
