Are there positions in Tiger Vault that can be used for systematically forced liquidation?

Yes. When the insufficient margin in your securities account triggers system leveling, if you have enabled Auto-Sweep, your Tiger Vault positions will be recorded as cash assets to be leveled first;

The system will automatically close the positions in your securities account to increase the account margin first, and if the margin is still insufficient, it will close your Tiger Vault positions. To avoid this, please be careful to maintain a sufficient margin in your account.

Will I incur any margin interest when using Tiger Vault as buying power?

No margin interest will be charged when using Tiger Vault positions as buying power to invest in stocks, funds or futures. However, when an exercise of a client's option occurs, if the amount of available cash funds in the client's Tiger account is insufficient, the operation of exercising the option through financing may trigger a margin interest charge.

Risk warning: When you use Auto-sweep to trade other investment products resulting in the MMF redemption amount greater than the MMF redemption gate, it may cause your MMF redemption to take longer to arrive and incur some financial interest.

How to withdraw funds from the positions in Tiger Vault?

You will need to first redeem your Money Market Funds holdings under Tiger Vault at your portfolio. Once the order is settled and cash returns to your account, you can then withdraw the cash from your account as per usual.

How about futures?

Tiger Vault's position as buying power does not support investing in futures for now.

Can Tiger Vault USD money market funds be used for HKD trading after I open Auto-Sweep?

Not for cash accounts, but for margin accounts. Margin accounts users using the buying power of the Tiger Vault USD money market Fund for HKD trading need to manually exchange currency after the USD money market fund redemptions arrive to ensure sufficient cash in HKD to avoid incurring financial interest.

After the Auto-Sweep of the Tiger Vault USD MMF is activated, will the Auto-redeem of the Tiger Vault USD MMF be triggered when only Hong Kong dollars generate liabilities?

No, if there are HKD arrears, the system will only Auto-redeem the HKD MMF in Tiger Vault to repay the HKD arrears. If there is no HKD MMF position in the account, the Auto-redeem will not be triggered, nor will the Auto-redeem of USD MMF position be triggered.
