TOKYO, April 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Moomoo Japan has introduced Japanese stock trading services, allowing investors in Japan to seamlessly trade both US and domestic stocks using moomoo, a global investment and trading platform which was officially introduced to Japan in September last year.

Starting from 18th March, investors in Japan can access a vast selection of over 4,000 stocks, ETFs, ETNs, REITs, and other securities listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (Prime, Standard, and Growth markets) through moomoo while leveraging a wide variety of professional-level tools and exclusive in-depth market data on the platform. Following the successful launch of US stock trading in Japan, Moomoo Japan is taking a step further to diversify its offerings to deliver upgraded trading experience for local investors.

Japan holds a crucial position as one of the most significant investment markets in the Asia-Pacific region, boasting a substantial base of retail investors. The prolonged period of low-interest rates in recent years has ignited a surge in interest among investors for stock investments. This year, the Nikkei index has achieved unprecedented highs, captivating the attention of global investors who are keen on exploring the potential opportunities within the Japanese stock market. To cater to the robust investment demand from Japanese investors and offer them a wider range of trading options, moomoo launched Japanese stock trading offering,” said Francisco Izawa, President of Moomoo Securities Japan. “We firmly believe Japanese investors can better seize investment opportunities by leveraging comprehensive and up-to-date market information, coupled with professional financial services provided by moomoo. We look forward to a shared growth trajectory with local investors, with the aim of mutually benefiting from the experience.”
