Mercury Securities Share Trading

About Mercury Securities

In 1984, the company started as Seberang Securities Sdn. Bhd. Four years later, the name was changed to Mercury Securities Sdn. Bhd. and the principal office was opened in Butterworth, Penang. Mercury Securities acquired the business and licence of PTB Securities Sd. Bhd. and was authorised to open branches throughout Malaysia in response to the Securities Commission’s call for stockbroking businesses to be consolidated.

What is a share trading account?

If you have a Share Trading Account in Malaysia, you can trade shares with funds from your account (Cash Account). Because traders often acquire and sell assets, usually within the same trading session, their accounts are regulated. The assets in a trading account are kept distinct from those in a long-term purchase and hold plan.
