  • Is there a minimum amount that we need to trade?
    Is RM1000 enough for starters?

    • The minimum is 100 unit of shares irrespective on the amount of money.

  • Morning! Fantastic info u got here. I would like to ask a question, if you don’t mind.
    In the Brokerage Fee section, there’s the percentage if Cash. For non-cash, there’s 100k. Why no same info for cash? Does it mean that for cash, no matter how big u trade, the percentage is the same?
    And keep up the good work!

    • Hi, some broker does not offer special rate cash account. The broker that do have normally their fee is flat which is not dependent of the trading amount.

  • I think your table will be more complete if you indicate if each of these is a nominee account or direct holder account.
    I have Public account and its a nominee account. I am looking for a direct holder account, which one recommended?

    • Thanks for the suggestion. I will look into it.

      By the way I have Nominee account with HLeBroking and Direct account with Jupiter Securities. Both of them are good.

  • Hi thanks for listing out this extremely useful comparison table. It helps me a lot.
    May I suggest to include a link to download the mobile app for trading for those brokers that support mobile trading?

    • shanyung,
      Hi, I will look into it as I have limited space available for more information.

  • I heard that HLeBroking also offer Cash Upfront Rate 0.1% flat. Am I right? How to get more info on it?

    • Kent,

  • hi im having problem with current brokerage.

  • For Public Invest, min. is RM28 not RM12.

  • Hi, i thought Maybank already use RM28 min per trade? thanks

    • Hi I am not so sure. I don’t have account with them. If you have please let me know.

  • For Public Bank there are public Invest and Public Online share. As I know both have different site to log in. Example (Public online share) (Public Investment bank)

    What is the different between this 2.


    • Hi,

      I don’t have any account with Public Bank for share trading to test out. I hope somebody out there to do the test.

      The link for public online share direct you to online banking.

  • Hi,

    I’m just starting….

    Can I assume that Jupiter is the best ?


    • I am using it for more than a year now. Everything is good!. 🙂

  • Bro,

    I’m interested to open account with jupiteronline,but wonder their support is good?

    Because i emailed them already 2 day no reply from them.

    • I seldom contacting them but when I do, the response was very quick. When you open an account you will be assign to 1 remiser. You can contacting him/her directly.

  • I got an untrusted warning when I try to click on the public invest link. Do you get the same?

    I just open an Public Sharelink account (I believe this is what you guys mean for Public Online Share) which is using the PBebank login.

    Well, it looks like Jupiter has the lowest fees and reliable. I think active trader should use it then?

  • maybank brokerage..

    intra – cash (same) : contra (0.15%)

  • Hi there, may I know what is the risk of paying cash, since it’s the cheapest amount?

  • Hi Ken,

    There is no risk, in fact is it better since you are using only the money that you have.

  • hi.
    im new.i jz open an acc in itrade.are u using itrade as well?..doest it hv min amount of stock that i need to follow??and what in intraday?how it will charge?Thanks


  • lim,

    I don’t have any account with CIMB itrade. Normally any broker does not ask for minimum number of stock to follow.

    Intraday means that you buy & sell the same stock on the same day.

  • Since Jupiter offers the best brokerage fees, how shall I contact them to open a trading account with them.Pls assist.

  • nur,

    To open account, the best is to visit their office.

    • Tks for the info.

  • For Amesecurities:

    Cash upfront:
    100k – 0.15%(buy) 0.20%(sell)
    min brokerage: RM28
    Intraday: 0.15%
    Intereset on balance: 2.45%

  • Thanks Ivan, table updated

  • Appreciate your effort in updating the timetable..
    its very useful for newbie..

  • thank you 1-million-dollar-blog for all the information. all the trading jargon used to scare me so much but you explained it in simple terms to help newbies like me to understand. thanks for the effort 🙂

  • I want to trade with my android phones, can you suggest any good brokerage…

  • i will like to ask OSK online brokerage fees is rm28 now or rm12??

  • Dear 1mdb,

    Additional info about Maybank2u online share trading.
    Maybank HOT broking cash upfront brokerage 0.1% min RM8. It is an Islamic stockbroking. Mobile trading is also available and it’s free. I have been using this service for quite some time.

  • Hi,

    What are the latest brokerage fee and offers for Maybank? What are the differences between Maybank2u Share Trading and Maybank IB offer for opening trading account? Do they have a cash upfront online trading account? I tried to finding out their products info but could find it a bit confusing.

    • If you opt to Maybank IB you’ll get Direct CDS account. If opening with Maybank Equity Investment Centre (or Maybank Share Investment Center) you’ll get nominee CDS.
      So, with one to choose? As for me, I opened both. Why? I use the Direct CDS to apply public IPOs. Once alloted, I transfer the shares to my nominee CDS as its brokerage fee is much cheaper (i.e., 0.10%, min RM8. This rate is for cash upfront)

      As for trading online, both type of account use the same platform , i.e., Maybank Online Share Trading, an IE-based platform.

  • Hi, great comparison table, could you include the interest rate as well?

    I am going to write my Phd thesis and I need some data which I could cited by them as my reference, u have lots of useful information on your blog e.g. about Transaction Cost but they are not cited able, so I would be thankful if u help me in this matter.
