Transfer USD to moomoo

The last part you’ll need to do is to transfer USD to moomoo.

To do so, you can go to ‘Transfer‘, and then ‘To Other DBS or POSB Account‘.

DBS Transfer To Other DBS Account

It will be best to use a Multi-Currency account to deposit USD, such as DBS Multiplier or My Account.

This will bring you to a page where you can add some details. You will need to indicate that you are sending USD. An important thing will be to select USD under ‘Currency‘.

DBS iBanking Select USD As Currency

By doing so, you will be transferring your USD balance from your Multi-Currency Account to moomoo. You can view this on the next page, which shows the amount of USD that you’re sending.

If you choose SGD as the ‘Currency’, you will be sending your SGD to moomoo, instead of the funds from your USD balance.

DBS iBanking Send USD from SGD

DBS will make the conversion from SGD to USD for you, at their defined exchange rate.

The exchange rate that DBS offers is usually less favourable compared to the current rates. As such, it will be better to deposit SGD into moomoo, and then exchange for USD.

Once you have transferred the funds, you should receive them in your moomoo US Margin Account within a few hours.

Are there any fees to withdraw USD from moomoo to my bank account?

moomoo does not charge any withdrawal fees if you are withdrawing USD from moomoo to a DBS Multi-Currency Account.

This is because moomoo has set up a DBS Multi-Currency account in Singapore, which makes sending and receiving funds much more convenient.

Since you are making a local transfer from moomoo’s DBS account to your DBS account, you will not incur any fees.

DBS only charges a fee for incoming transfers if the bank account is an overseas bank account.

However, I am not sure if you will incur any fees if you are withdrawing your USD to another multi-currency account in Singapore, such as OCBC or UOB.

Should I withdraw USD or SGD from moomoo?

Since moomoo’s exchange rates are usually more favourable compared to those being offered by DBS, it may be advantageous to exchange your USD to SGD first on moomoo’s platform before you withdraw the SGD back to your account.

However, if you are looking to use USD for another purpose such as remitting to another platform, it will be better to withdraw USD instead.

If you receive USD from moomoo to DBS with the intention of converting it back to SGD, it would be better to perform the currency exchange on moomoo instead.

The exchange rate is usually more competitive for moomoo compared to DBS.

However, you may intend to use USD for another purpose, such as:

If you intend to use your USD, it would be better to leave your funds as USD. Otherwise, you may incur a lot of unnecessary fees when you convert your currencies!

Conclusion

moomoo has a DBS Multi-Currency Account in Singapore, which means that you will not incur any deposit or withdrawal fees from DBS when you are transferring USD to and from your DBS bank accounts.

This is because you are using a local transfer, instead of an overseas bank transfer!

The process is similar when you are depositing or withdrawing USD from Tiger Brokers too.

As such, you may want to consider using moomoo to exchange your SGD to USD, and then withdraw it back to your DBS bank account. moomoo has a better spread than DBS, which will help to save on some of the costs you’ll incur.

This will be especially useful if you are intending to deposit your USD to FTX to buy cryptocurrencies.
