Trading

When can I start trading (Buy and Sell)?

You can start buying shares if there is sufficient trading balance and/or cash/margin balance in your share trading or share margin account.

The computation of available trading balance and/or cash/margin balance is basing on the total collateral pledged as per Banks valuation.

You are NOT allowed to buy shares if there is no available trading and cash/margin balance. The system will disallow you from placing Buy order if the available trading and cash/margin balance is insufficient.

For sell transactions, you MUST hold the stock with sufficient quantity of shares in your share trading or share margin account. You may refer to the ’Sellable List’ in the ‘Online Enquiries’ for the list of stocks and the available quantity held. The system will not allow you to place Sell order if there is insufficient quantity of shares held in your account.

Short-selling is strictly PROHIBITED.

When can I place an order?
Bursa Malaysia's designated order entry hours are as follows:-
  • First trading session: 8.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.; and
  • Second trading session: 2.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m.
 
You may place your orders electronically during these stipulated hours, and your orders will be routed directly to Bursa Malaysia for execution.
 
You may also place your orders for next trading day from 5.15 p.m. onwards, in which your orders will be 'Queued' for the next trading day.

What is the maximum quantity and value per order that I can place?
