Japanese online trading company Rakuten Securities plans to add 200 foreign stocks to its lineup of trading instruments. The additions include the stocks of 100 companies listed on US exchanges and the stocks of 100 companies listed on the Hong Kong exchange.
The new instruments include the shares of KLX Energy Services Holdings (KLXE), which provides oilfield services to oil and gas exploration and production companies, and Vigil Neuroscience (VIGL), a US-based biotechnology company. The broker will also add the stocks of JLMAG, a producer of rare earth permanent magnets.
The broker has been regularly expanding its offering. In January, for instance, Rakuten Securities unveiled its plans to add stocks of 170 companies, listed on US, Chinese and Hong Kong stock exchanges.
The additions include the stock of multinational electronics and semiconductors manufacturer STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM) and the stock of multi-crop and middle-market agricultural company S&W Seed Company (NASDAQ:SANW).
