What To Do After You Open A First Metro Sec Online Trading Account
Upon submitting all you requirements you need to wait 2-3 working days for First Metro Sec to process your application. You will receive an email with your login credentials to confirm that your account has been made successfully. After this you are ready to buy your first stocks and start trading.
For non-Metrobank holders who have submitted their initial investment your account will have the said amount already upon login.
Metrobank holders on the other hand has option to 1.) Connect their First Metro Sec account to their Metrobank account to automatically transfer funds for your investment. 2.) Do an over-the-counter deposit at the nearest Metrobank.
That’s it. You are now officially investing in stocks.
