shun I wonder if a malaysian brokerage house gives us acccount protection like in the US, which covers shares and cash in my account when the brokerage house fails. Could you please tell me if they have, some of them have, or not at all? If any, tell me which houses have. Thank you very much.

MarvelLady ellesse,u r not stupid but ignorant. Ur remisier is....he should hv advised u on the day when u started trading intraday. Or he is greedy...even if the trades r done, ur remisier can amend the same contracts on the following day.
11/04/2014 14:24
ellesse Hi Marvellady.. Thanks... :D
I think my remisier is greedy lah..
If I don't ask him today then he won't tell me..
He said he will help me open the daytrade account and
can be use on Monday... so for today he still can earn more because this morning done some intraday transaction already..
