Superman009 Dear All, I am trading via AmInvestment Bank. It is indeed the lowest brokerage rate in the market - 0.035% or minimum RM 6 and there are no hidden charges and no minimum deposit is required. You can always call the customer service at 03-20310102 to find out and clarify on these issues. So far I am enjoying the lowest brokerage rate and am satisfied with the customer service.

Superman009 AmInvestment Bank - 0.035% or minimum RM 6 for cash upfront, no minimum deposit needed. Why pay more brokerage at Hong Leong? Anyway, just to share out good deals with you guys.
01/09/2014 22:26
Superman009 I just don't get it. If you are looking for low brokerage rate and willing to pay 0.0388% or min RM 8.88 at CIMB, might as well go for 0.035% min RM6 at AmInvestment... Anyway, happy trading. As long as we can earn gains from stocks, anything lar. It's just that with lower brokerage rate, we can trade more and maximise our profits.

haikeyila whats the point of having low brokerage when its a cash upfront? You are giving your money for free even before you trade. It should have been zero brokerage, but then again no free lunch in this world.
