Automate Your US Market Trades with Raku-Invest

Ideal for long term traders and beginner investors

Everything is getting more expensive, from breakfast to smartphone upgrades. Our money’s value is shrinking every year due to inflation. This problem is even worse for many Malaysians because of low savings rates and economic uncertainties.

In these tough times, regular investing is more important than ever to beat inflation. Without a plan to tackle the rising cost of living, you might have to cut back on the lifestyle you love.

If you would rather keep the lifestyle, you’ve grown accustomed to, consider boosting your secondary income through regular share trading.

Enter Raku-Invest. The solution for those who don’t have the time or interest to constantly read the news, follow influencers to wait for that call to Buy or Sell. If you prefer efficiency over following trends, Raku-Invest is for you.

What Is Raku-Invest?

Raku-Invest allows you to schedule recurring orders on the US market from as low as RM100 on a weekly or monthly basis.  Once you’re set up, the system will handle the trades, executing them at your chosen intervals — either weekly or monthly — without any further action needed on your part.

Why Choose Raku-Invest?

It’s an easy way to invest long-term and removes the emotion or influence social media has on your investments.

 It creates a more disciplined approach of sticking to a regular investment schedule.

 By focusing on long-term goals and ignoring market ups and downs, it helps lessen the impact of market volatility and reduces the risk of investing a big chunk of money at the wrong time.

 This investment strategy is very popular in Japan, especially for beginners and busy professionals.

How Do I Know It’s Right For Me?

  • You prefer efficiency over indecisiveness.
  • You have a long-term investment goal.
  • You are concerned about market volatility and want to mitigate your risk.

Raku-Invest is great for cultivating a habit of consistent investing and allows you to focus on long-term goals despite market fluctuations. By starting small and investing consistently, you have your path toward financial freedom.

It effectively deploys the strategy of DCA or Dollar Cost Averaging, where you invest a fixed amount at regular intervals and avoid being impacted by market fluctuations.

This strategy is different to lump-sum investing, where you invest your money all at once.

With the examples above, you can see how DCA can smooth out market volatility and lower your average share price. Of course, every situation is unique and different investment strategies will be optimal in various scenarios.
