All the data is successfully collected and analyzed by descriptive statistic. The study found that, even though the Bumiputera do have general knowledge on the concept of investment, their direct involvement and accessibility to it are limited. The two main factors that hinder their ability to invest in Islamic stock trading are low financial literacy and exposure to the stock trading.

These phenomena are obvious when most of them are not able to maintain and increase their initial investment value.
