Brian Ong is of Singapore and is one of the early adopters of moomoo when it launched in the city-state. Brian’s nickname on moomoo is @Brianjh.
A year ago Brian was at an all-time low because he was unemployed, but a year later he’s been successful in both the workplace and the stock market. Not only did he become a product engineer in a well-known technology company in Singapore, but he also learned to invest and manage his wealth from scratch. He regained his self-confidence in his investment journey and found a new lease of life.
Brian shared his story with us about how moomoo helped him on his journey in investing and trading, and how it increased his motivation for self-improvement.
From unemployed to employee, Brian has regained his self-confidence
Brian lost his job a year ago due to the pandemic and other reasons. He had lost the thread of his life during this time and lived aimlessly. Having spent all his savings, he had no choice but to rely on his parents.
Fortunately, Brian’s parents weren’t hard on him, but instead encouraged him to seek new employment opportunities. Brian felt ashamed of his aging parents and realized he couldn’t go on like this. So he started to think about how he could get out of this difficult situation.
To improve his financial situation, he decided to try his hand at investing. However, starting out as a newbie, he didn’t even know what kind of investing and trading software was right for him. As he painstakingly researched online investment information, an app with an orange “Wall Street Bull” logo caught his eye.
moomoo had just embarked on Singapore around this time, but quickly established itself in Singaporean investment circles. With a âlet’s try and seeâ attitude, Brian downloaded the app, registered and began his journey as an investor.
What he loves most about moomoo is the abundance of investment tutorials on the platform, aimed at investors with varying levels of experience ranging from beginners to advanced. He uses moomoo every day to learn about basic investment and trading knowledge, the stock market, trading strategies, long term investing and other financial knowledge etc.
In addition to using moomoo, Brian also watches numerous YouTube videos on investing and trading every day. All of this greatly improved his overall understanding of the stock and money markets, and his knowledge of investing improved in leaps and bounds.
He then slowly began to formulate his own investment strategies. Before investing, he would do in-depth research and analysis on the companies he is interested in, and use moomoo to learn about related industry news and trends, then analyze the trends to decide if there are any opportunities for investment. potential investment.
At the same time, it also uses YouTube, Google and other channels to find more information in order to come to an overall understanding, and then rates and selects 1-5 companies to invest small amounts at regular intervals. Brian believes this reduces risk and “generally leads to good returns.”
moomoo was Brian’s guide to the world of investing
As a totally newbie investor, even in his wildest dreams, Brian didn’t think he could invest well in such a short time. He attributes this success to the investment software he uses every day, moomoo.
We can say that moomoo is the first software that led him in this investment adventure. Brian says that the moomoo operating interface is very user-friendly and that investors on moomoo can view individual stock quotes and related market news in a more efficient and convenient way.
Brian enjoys looking at the fundamentals of a business. The variety of reports, information and news available on moomoo meets its analysis and research needs. This helps it discover high growth technology companies with strong fundamentals.
Of course, the most appealing aspect of moomoo is that “it has a great community, which is suitable for people to discuss stock information and share their investment ideas or any other finance related topic that might be of interest to them. . If you have questions about a particular function or stock, you can find the answer on moomoo. It’s like a pool of knowledge that everyone benefits from, and everyone actively gives feedback, helps and encourages a another.”
Brian also enjoys the various activities and rewards on the moomoo platform. Several months ago, Brian exchanged the points he earned from participating in activities for a limited edition “lion dancing bull”, which he places on his desk so he can see it every day.
He says he will continue to participate in the activities and earn points. âNext I want to get a piggy bank, which I intend to give to my father. He is almost 70 years old and he loves lucky charms. This piggy bank has the Chinese character for “fortune,” so I’m sure he’ll love it. “
Investing becomes an alternative way of life
In addition to being successful in investing, Brian was also offered a job at a well-known tech company in Singapore thanks to his hard work. Now he has a stable job.
Today Brian is working hard to do his job and also to invest, and is very confident about his future.
He frankly admits that the investment has brought something new to his life. âInvesting means my wealth can grow. I learned a lot of new things and made a lot of like-minded friends throughout the investment process. “
Brian plans to slowly expand his investment portfolio and plans to invest in other financial products in addition to stocks. He believes that as his own analytical and decision-making skills improve, he will be able to make even better investment choices in the future. “I hope to bring back 40 to 50% in the future.”
This year marks Futu’s 9th anniversary and Brian says, âI hope moomoo will organize more activities or webinars in the future and bring more people together. This will allow us to share our own experiences and investment ideas in real time. , if possible, I would like to meet friends from the community in person. “
