Best Futures Broker award since 2014. Award-winning order execution!
Legendary service from 8h00 to 22h00:
Retail and professional clients have equal status. Every client, retail or professional, receives the best market data, trading platforms and order execution.
Our historical charts cover years. Although futures expire frequently, we are capable of seamlessly mapping one expired future chart after another. This allows correct technical analysis and the back-testing of trading strategies. Most brokers provide futures charts which are either one or three months long.
A profit or loss in another currency than the base currency of your account remains unconverted. At the beginning of the month all currency balances are converted into the base currency of your account at institutional(!) exchange rates plus 0.25%.
Unlike many other providers, we do not charge extra for telephone or liquidation orders. Modifying working orders is also free of charge.
We provide award-winning high-speed order routing and execution technology. Efficient order execution can make the different between profit or loss. An order, which is executed one point better, means 5 €, 10 € or 25 € more profit for you.
Tick-by-tick quotes are one of the key success factors in futures trading. Many brokers (including Interactive Brokers) save costs by providing 1/2 second snapshot quotes. With 1/2 second snapshot quotes a trader is blind. 75% of all price movements in the market are not visible. Limit and stop orders may not be executed. And, orders are executed at a slower speed, often at inferior prices.
You can avoid the spread when trading futures. The NanoTrader trading platform can automatically manage your orders so that they are constantly at the best bid or ask price.

* The main advantages are the length of the historical data and the fact that the charts of all expired futures are seamlessly integrated into one, long chart. Other brokers simply provide the one-month or three-month chart of the current futures contract. These charts are useless for technical analysis.

Depending on the WH SelfInvest branch office you choose for your account, WH SelfInvest will use one of these depository banks.

Trading account balances do not receive an interest. If trading account balances are charged an interest or similar costs, the cost will be passed on to the client.

This fee does not apply to accounts in all other branches.
Funding the account can be done by money transfer to a client assets account held at one of the depository banks. The cost is € 5. Due to regulatory requirements WH SelfInvest will only accept transfers coming from a bank account in the name of the account holder. Transfers from third parties, including family members, cannot be accepted.
The security of the account is very important. For your safety we will only accept a transfer out instruction signed by the account holder(s). Transfer costs are € 5 for amounts < € 30.000 and 0,10% (with a maximum of € 50) for amounts > € 30.000.
