I’m foreign student in Kaohsiung. I want to open stock account to buy stock in Taiwan. Therefore today morning i went to Yuanta securities to open account. They gave me a contract (only in chinese), I cant understand and must use GG translate to complete it. BUT they dont’nt allow me to create account because I dont understand contract in chinese. Anyone can give me advice? what company i can open account easily. Thank you very much
Find a tw friend to help?
Have you open successfully?
No no , dont have a arc .
I dont think i can on a tourist visa.
But knowing a good tw friend that is smart about translation is a valuable tool here.
I dont have a friend to offer i wish…
In order to open a stock account you need to register first at the Taiwan Stock Exchange corporation so you can obtain an “Investor ID”
You can check the required documentation in this link
Can you give me advice some name of company i can open account easily? Thank you
I don’t have a stock account , however if your registration has been approved , then shouldn’t be difficult to open a stock account with any security firm
You can check the list of the Securities firms in the following link
I have an account with Yuanta Securities. Wasn’t hard to open, but all the forms are in Chinese.
yes, They gave me a contract (only in chinese), I cant understand and must use GG translate to complete it. BUT they dont’ allow me to create account because I dont understand contract in chinese.
The stock trading apps are also all in Chinese. So if you can’t read Chinese, you’ll have a hard time investing.
i know. But i can learn. I 'm very unsatisfied about their sevices
You can try with CTBC (China Trust) but they have a separate securities offices for that.
Thank You but unfortunately CTBT hasn’t brand in Kaohsiung. I have searched
that’s too bad.
Maybe you can try here, it’s right below Yuanta!
yes. I have search only JihSun, Huanan, Yuanta is near my address
I had success with Fubon, can’t recall if I could have gotten by without Chinese though.
Oh, thankyou. i can’t understand why they dont’ have english version of contract
Hi, may I know how did you open the securities account? Do I have to first obtain the “Investor ID” thing through TWSE, or do I just need to go to a security firm like Yuanta and register everything there? Thank you!
But don’t bother trading foreign stocks with them.
Only Taiwan stocks have low fee trading.
