7 BEST Articles to Read Before You Jump into Stocks Investing in Malaysia

In case you didn’t know, Bursa Malaysia is having a moment right now. It kept smashing records.

As of the time of writing, it broke the trading record high of 27.8 billion shares in volume worth RM7.8bil on 11 Aug 2020, AFTER breaking the trading record high of 26.65 billion shares worth RM9.05bil on 7 August 2020, AFTER breaking the trading record high of 15.62 billion shares worth RM10.45bil on 4 August 2020 (and it broke records the day before that, too).

[SPONSORED] I Tried Bursa Marketplace’s Mirror, Learn & Trade Platform

But if the idea is so easy, then why do I find it intimidating?

Bursa Malaysia knows that many people have the same feeling. Part of their mandate is to attract more investors to the Malaysian stock market, so they come up with various initiatives, including educational ones, to help us overcome that fear.

The latest initiative – Bursa Marketplace’s Mirror, Learn & Trade Platform or MLT Platform for short – may be the coolest one yet. I tried it out. Here’s what I thought of it.
