MyTrade Review and First Impressions

What is MyTrade?

MyTrade is the online trading platform by Abacus Securities, a stock brokerage firm licensed to trade in the PSE – Philippine Stock Exchange. MyTrade is one of the newer stock trading platforms for Filipinos to take charge of their financial future. Through the platform, you can bypass the middleman! You can now easily buy and sell stocks and securities in the Philippine Stock Market (in your pajamas).

MyTrade Review and First Impressions

So What is my MyTrade review and how does it hold up to other platforms?

MyTrade isn’t my first trading platform, my first was COL. And of course, it takes some getting used to when you first look into MyTrade’s dashboard. COL was more ‘minimalist’ and simple, and MyTrade had a lot of widgets. If I could make an analogy, COL would be iOS and MyTrade would be Android. MyTrade’s interface can get a bit intimidating, especially for a first timer.

However, as soon as you get used to it, you will learn to love it and appreciate it, for the following attributes:

  • Highly customizable interface. Design your interface according to the information you want. Everything is there in the dashboard.
  • Solid Reports. Detailed information. I loved receiving their newsletters, very comprehensive research, and due diligence reports.
  • Great Customer Service. You can reach out to their customer service via chatbox and they reach out to you in real-time. How awesome is that?
  • Easy Fund Method. There are many ways for you to Fund your Account–bank transfer, Remittance, and soon, digital wallets via Gcash and Paymaya.
  • Easy Access. As an IMG Member, I get easy and convenient access to the MyTrade platform via the IMG dashboard.
