Hi. Im new to trading. Is Rakuten deal with syariah stocks as well? I see their fee is cheaper than bank. Any idea why some broker charge very much for example like Kenanga?

Posted by MrBorneo26 > 2021-03-16 02:25 | Report Abuse

@moneytree88 u can download (Bursa anywhere apps) to active back your account,,just RM5 fee to reactivation of a dormant CDS account..Or u can open another account if u want.. 1 broker for 1 account..u can open more than 1 account..up to you..

@DzulY74..Rakuten can buy and sell all stock at Bursa either shariah stocks or non-shariah stock. Rakuten is a Nominee account, cannot buy IPO..it's Better for newbie to start invest at Bursa if they have Rm1000 below. some broker charge higher coz they have different features. some of them have features-Stop limit/Cut loss/screener/live chart/indicator/Alert/transaction History..some broker dont have.

What is the difference if managed directly vs Managed by Broker?

I started my investment journey with a nominee account (Rakuten Trade). But later this year I decided to switch into a direct account (Malacca Securities) after I found out their differences...

I tried the calculate function on MPLUS to simulate the amount of brokerage I have to pay. But the minimum is RM40 Brokerage fees charged, but isn't the advertised fee RM8?

Posted by Journey to Financial Independence > 2021-04-07 14:05 | Report Abuse

@benjikoh, my account is M+ silver account (cash upfront), charged a minimum of RM9.70 per contract including stamp duty and clearing fees. You can ask your remisier/ dealer representative what type of account are you using to buy/sell. If your remisier does not reply to your message, it's time to change from M+ platform to others.

Newbie here, I hear that if using Rakuten, all shared purchased will park under Rakuten account not park under our individual account, is this statement correct? If park under Rakuten, we wont be recognize when AGM it's?

Like MrBorneo26, I have accounts with both Rakuten and MPlus. My recommendation is to open account with more than one broker to compare stock recommendation and monitor stock performance if you can. As for the reason why Rakuten operate using nominee account type is because in addition to cash account which require cash to be deposited first before you can trade they also provide contra and margin accounts which require your stocks to be collateralized. The advantage of contra account over cash account is that you can trade and settle later (T+2) hence very useful for short term trading. As for the reason why I like Mplus other than cheap brokerage is because they provide very good market and stock updates and conduct free seminars for their clients very regularly.

@i3lurker Hi Thanks a lot... Yes after requesting they have reduced it to RM12 now...
It is sad that even the broker didn`t advise about it, she insisted the minimum was RM28 last month.

@msbr91. Often not enough limit although I have shares. Keep asking me to top-up money.
Ask why? don’t want answer. Ask further, then only say company got restrictions. Ask what restrictions, cannot disclose to me. I am tired.

Do we have a similar comparison for a corporate trading account? There are lots of info on individual trading accounts, the cost comparison, pros and cons, etc., but literally none (afaik) on corporate accounts.

There is a catch on CIMB Clicks 0.0388% brokerage rate with minimum $8.80.
Minimum $8.88 is per matched Order.
Say you have 3 matched order, each trade value 10,000.
Total brokerage is 8.88 * 3 = $26.64. Not 30,000 * 0.0388% = $11.64

Malaysia increase stamp duty from 0.1% to 0.15% from 2022.
Many countries don't impose stamp duty for stock trading, including Singapore, US.
While China impose 0.1% on the selling side only.
Also, Malaysia stamp duty still apply when you invest in foreign market through Malaysia broker.

Can I check if SST still applies for each transaction in 2022

Posted by chinvest17 > 2022-01-08 17:47 | Report Abuse

No more SST in 2022.

Actually 0.15% stamp duty do not apply to all stock type
0.10% still apply to Warrant, REIT, Trust, Close-ended Fund.
While ETF, no stamp duty until 2025.
