New To Investing Completely Online?
Investing can be intimidating, especially for someone with no prior trading experience or who isn't used to a completely digital platform. Not to worry, we're here to show you simple steps to get you up and running easily. And remember because we are a completely digital broker which means you can open an account and receive approval within an hour!
Now, remember a lot of brokers design their services around corporate investors and not for individuals first...unlike at Rakuten Trade. PLUS as we don't have those fancy branches or middlemen like remisiers or dealers, our brokerage rates (like agency fees) are alot lower than most brokers in Malaysia. It doesn't mean, though, that we're a no frills broker.
We provide access to trading ideas that are simple and easy to understand, customer support members (all licensed) during market hours via email, webchat or for a phone call and every engagement earns you rewards!
Choose The Right Account
Hold Up To 3 Accounts
- Cash Upfront Account: Similar to a debit card, it lets you trade with your available cash. At Rakuten Trade, it provides access to trading in Malaysia, the US, and Hong Kong. Just don’t forget to opt in for foreign marketing trading.
- Contra Account: Ideal for day traders and frequent stock traders. It's like a charge card, offering an increased trading limit based on available funds or shares (up to 5x) placed as collateral. Settlement is required within 2 days. It’s complemented with a Day Trade Rebate Program.
- RakuMargin Account: Like a credit card, it's a unique offering in Malaysia, with an automatic facility limit of RM100,000. If you need a higher limit, you can request one, subject to terms and conditions of course.
