Introduction

moomoo is a trading platform offered by Moomoo Inc., a subsidiary of Futu Holding Limited (FUTU), and its subsidiaries which has 43 licenses globally in major financial markets such as the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, and others. In Singapore, capital markets products and services on moomoo are offered by Futu Singapore Pte. Ltd. (FUTU SG), licensed and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

Moreover, the US securities brokerage accounts you own with Futu SG are protected by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). The SIPC provides some protection over an investor’s securities and cash when a brokerage firm is liquidated.

Futu Holdings is backed by world-class strategic investors including venture capital affiliates of Tencent, Sequoia Capital, and Matrix Partners. After almost 9 years of development, Futu’s trading platforms have garnered almost 16 million users from more than 200 regions and regions around the world, with more than one million average daily active users.

Competitive Commissions

Futu SG being the newest broker introduced into the Singapore market has definitely come into the market with an aggressive fee structure to entice new users to sign up. The fee structure is more attractive than the traditional brokers we have here such as DBS Vickers or UOB KayHian and is more on par with the other online brokers that just came into the market such as Tiger Brokers and Interactive Brokers SG.

Once you registered for a moomoo ID, you will be given free real-time Level 2 US Market Data, Level 1 SG Market Data, and now Level 1 for China A shares. For opening an account, you will be given 180 days or 6 months of unlimited commission-free trades across the US, HK, and SG markets (do not apply for Stock Options and Futures).

When you deposit SGD 2,700, USD 2,000, or HKD 16,000 successfully into your account, you will be rewarded an SGD88 cash coupon (only from 17 September at 20:00 hrs SGT to 30 September at 23:59 hrs SGT). After completing 5 trades for any market or products except Futures, you can get 1 free Apple (worth SGD 200*) share. This equates to a 10% ROI on your deposited SGD2,700 without doing any work!

  1. Hi,
    I am interested to jump into Moomoo. Just to clarify with you — there was an earlier mention of a new subscriber being offered a free 128GB iPhone 13? Is this offer still on, and what does a new subscriber have to put in to get this iPhone as well as the one free Apple share? I understand I have to deposit at least SGD 2,700 into my account after registration.

    One other question : currently I am in Kuala Lumpur. If there is such an offer of iPhone 13, how do I get to claim it?

    Thank you. Looking forward to your reply.
