STEP 1

Sign Up With The Right Broker

Equity trading is the buying and selling of shares for the purposes of hopefully making a profit. And so, it is important that the broker you choose should match your lifestyle preferences.

Just like how you would choose an airline to fly with, do you want a low-cost carrier, a full-service carrier or something in between? We suggest looking into the following elements when choosing a broker: 

  
  • Are they licensed?
  • Do they specialise in catering to retail investors? Remember a lot of brokers design their services around corporate/institutional investors and not for individuals
  • How much do they charge? Brokerage rates are similar to agency fees and are charges that you have to pay on top of the cost of buying or selling shares
  • Do they extend investment ideas that you are comfortable with so you can get some idea of what to buy and when to sell?
  • Can you get assistance when you need it? Don't forget the share market can move pretty quickly.

Choose The Right Account

Rakuten Trade offers two ways to trade on Bursa Malaysia. You can apply for one or both when you trade with us. 

  • Cash Upfront trading, which operates like a debit card allows you to trade using only your available cash in the account. 
  • ​​​​​​​Contra Account trading is like a charge card. This means that you are extended a spending limit based on the share(s) and cash placed as collateral but are required to fully settle their transaction(s) within two days.
