In lieu of recent Spore T-bill low allocation, create this fixed deposit lobang thread. Welcome all to share.

Tenor period, interest rate, minimum placement, can DIY online are criteria for me.

The one I am looking at currently are
1. ICBC minimum $500 3-6 month
2. BOC minimum $5,000 3-6 month
3. CIMB minimum $10,000 3-6 month
4. RHB minimum $20,000 3-6 month
5. Sing Investment minimum $20,000 3 month

I guess the hole is patched already? Good lobang don't last long. Maybe next time then.
After some research decide to apply for ICBC fixed deposit account which come with current account and is multi-currency. No monthly fall below fee no minimum monthly balance but have dormant fee if no txn for one year. Except for this con think all is fine.

I like the minimum placement of $500. What this mean is you can create multiple placement each $500. Advantage is along the way if better rates appear you can terminate via the mobile app easily slowly one by one and since each placement is $500 you don't lose much even if penalty is levied.

Due to constant change of FD rate nowadays a lot of ppl put and terminate FD and for some banks terminate is tedious got penalty need go to branch etc so this is a point to take note. What is highest interest now can go higher within a month sometimes!

ICBC current account no minimum balance and is multicurrency. You put monies into this account and then use this account as source to put into fixed deposit account. FD for ICBC minimum 500.

Think this work same way as other banks but was told some no need any savings or current account can direct put monies into fixed deposit account. Then mature already monies go where since no savings or current account?
If not BOC lowest minimum balance of 1500 needed for SmartSaver I think for current 3-6 month FD it is best deal this week. For users already have BOC SmartSaver can use this account to place the new FD. Premature withdrawal of FD no penalty like ICBC just each FD minimum is 5000 compared to ICBC 500
