Hi Steve or Def, I see from previous post that the execution for japanese stocks is pretty slow due to the system at the exchange. Can you perhaps elaborate a little bit on that? How slow is it? 5 min for confirmation or 15 min? I am interested in day trading japanese stocks. Is japan stocks 100 shares for standard lot? or is it like HK where the number of shares is different for each company? And how much margin do i need to put up? 50% like US stocks? Thanks in advance for providing the info.
