I will be posting a short summary of Global Outlook to monitor the market movements. […]
With easy to use features and SGD 200 Stock Cash Coupon Bundle, I had hopped over to Futu Singapore as my latest broker. Out of all the features that I enjoy on moomoo app, having a good customer support is the one that I appreciated the most. I had made 2 calls while signing up and my queries were responded promptly. A 24 hours customer service on trading days is very important to me, as it gives me a peace of mind when I trade. This is exactly what moomoo powered by FUTU offers as well.
In case you are wondering, my first question was to clarify the fees after the promotion period (180 days). Under " Calculate commissions", you will know the commission and platform fees once you type in the Stock Code. My next question - when my account will be ready (within the day for my case).
Multiple brokerage accounts are beneficial in helping you to diversity your risk of putting all your eggs into one basket. Also, account insurance under the Securities Investor Protection Corporation amounts to $500,000 per broker. So dividing assets across different brokerage companies can help you protect a larger overall portfolio more effectively.
Commissions are charged differently in each market. If you are looking to minimize your commissions, having more than one brokerage accounts would be wise. It is best that you have an investment plan and find the brokers that align with your plan. I personally have 5 different brokerage accounts, each for their own purposes.
- Futu Singapore (US/SG/HK stock)
- DBS Vickers (SG stock)
- Tiger Brokers (SG/HK stock)
- Standard Chartered (Irish-domiciled ETFs on LSE)
- TDAmeritrade (US stock)
What I will need next: FSMOne (to sell SG stock from CDP)
Unique selling point of moomoo trading app
- Free real-time quotes and competitive commissions
- Centralised information & global community·
- Learning courses & 24 hours customer service
- From first picture, you can see my transactions which are very transparent. I used the commission-free coupon for SG market. S$1.62 is charged for platform fee. After depositing S$2,700, I received my rewards within 5 days too! Bank transfer takes around 15 minutes (Depositing S$2700 is the first condition to redeem your benefits). DDA is also available if you have a POSB/DBS account.
- From the 2nd picture, I made my first trade (you have to make 5 trades as a second condition). I would recommend you to make a trade with US stock to minimise your fees (unlike SG market, you don't have to buy stocks in multiples of 100)
- From the 3rd picture, click on "currency exchange" to exchange SGD to USD
