If you've spent any time in the international securities space, you may have heard of Monex Inc. Japan. The company was founded by Oki Matsumoto in 1999 as a partnership with Sony Corporation. Monex has grown into the third largest online broker in Japan, a nation known for its vibrant securities market. 

To expand its reach into key foreign markets, Monex established active collaborations with TradeStation in the US and Boom in Hong Kong, both well-known brokerage agencies in their own right. TradeStation is well-established as one of the largest brokers stateside, while Boom was the first online broker in Asia and still holds a powerful position in virtual trading.

Monex continues to expand its global footprint, opening offices in 12 locations around the world. Recently, we opened an office in Australia. Our focus is on allowing investors in Australia to access international markets at affordable rates, opening them up to global securities opportunities in international stock trading.

In the past, Australians couldn't easily trade in the global space, especially online. The fees were beyond their reach, and real-time transactions were a challenge. As a subsidiary of Monex in Japan, our office utilises the back-end programming, resources, and networks of not just the parent company, but also TradeStation in the US and Monex Boom in Hong Kong.This generous pool of influence, financial contacts, and technical know-how has allowed us to drastically reduce trading costs. These savings are transferred to our clients, enabling us to facilitate your trades at pocket-friendly rates. You can - for example - trade US securities for as little as $9.99, a rate not easily matched in our market.

Currently, Monex Australia allows you to invest in 12 key markets, all on a single platform. You don't need an app or download of any kind. You can do all your trading directly on the web using a browser of your choice. Our system is fully integrated, allowing you to buy, sell, and monitor multiple markets within the same space, and making it easier to invest in overseas shares.

Ordinarily, you may require a different trading app for every country you've invested in. Our international teams allow you to merge your dealings in Asia, America, and right here in Australia, all on one screen, regardless of time zones or local market conditions. Simply use wire or telegraphic transfers to load your account and start trading immediately.

We understand that it can be tricky to juggle trades across regions, so we facilitate market orders, limit orders, chain orders, sell-stop-limit orders, and two-way-sell orders. With all these automated options in place, you can trade while you sleep or before your target market wakes up. We will send you a daily statement of your dealings, just to be sure.

If you're exploring and prospecting in various markets, we can help you keep an eye on them with our multi-market watch list. At a glance, you can monitor trading conditions around the world, enabling you to make better decisions and speeding up the execution of your stock trades. Plus, we service clients at both individual and corporate levels, offering B2B and B2C services.
