36% of Moomoo users that participated in the survey made money in 2023, outlook generally positive for the rest of the year

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Online trading platform moomoo, an intuitive investment and trading platform providing investors with pro-grade, easy-to-use tools, data, and insights, released results of its second quarter investor survey for U.S. moomoo users.

In the first half of 2023, moomoo users who participated in the survey are trading more, and a larger number are profitable in 2023 compared to 2022, but their confidence levels have not improved. The survey also shows that amid the recent U.S. stock market rally, 36% of surveyed users have made money in 2023 as compared to only 15% in 2022 year-over-year when the S&P 500 lost 19.4% *- its worst decline since 2008. However, in the first half of 2023, Fed rate hikes, recession fears, upheaval in the financial sector, and inflation remain as the top concerns among the moomoo investors.

Users are also split on their thoughts about the safety of banks and on ESG investing. According to the survey, under 25-year-olds are more likely (64%) to consider environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors when making investment decisions than the other surveyed moomoo users.

Although there is some investor confusion as to where the market goes from here and whether there will be a recession, 39% of users in the survey are bullish compared to only 21% at the beginning of the year. Lower than expected inflation and better than expected earnings for some companies and economic growth contributed significantly to the change in investor sentiment.

“We are so glad to learn that the stock market rally has boosted users’ confidence overall. Many are cautiously optimistic about markets for the rest of the year, but inflation and recession continue to worry them, and we will watch closely for the rest of this year,” said Justin Zacks, Vice President of Strategy, Moomoo Technologies Inc.
