Best Futures Broker 2014-2020. Award-winning order execution
All futures and futures markets can be traded on one account. LEGENDARY service from 8h00 to 22h00.
Retail and professional clients have equal status. Every client receives the best market data, trading platforms and order execution.
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.
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. The majority of futures brokers provide historic charts which are only one or three months long.
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.
These 20 facts illustrate why WH SelfInvest never compromises on quality.

* 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.
Alle futures have the same parameters. The values of these parameters are dictated by the exchange. Once you understand the six most important futures parameters you can trade any future.
Every future trades on one exchange only. Every order, from anywhere in the world, is routed to this exchange and executed in the order book. The open orders are shown in real-time in an order book with 20 lines. The executed orders are shown in the time&sales screen.
All our futures orders are executed at high speed. The futures markets are 100% electronic. There is no human intervention. Slippage is extremely rare!
The trader decides whether to use leverage or not and how much.
Futures trading is cheap. The order commissions are low, fixed and fair. The spreads are extremely low. When futures trading it is even possible to avoid the market spread.
An example: The bid-ask in the order book is 161,03 - 161,04. A buyer who places a buy limit at 161,03 can be executed, if a seller is willing to sell at this price. The bid-ask does not have to go down for this to happen! This buyer can even place a sell limit order at 161,04 after his buy. In the case of over-the-counter instruments (CFD, forex...) this trade is never possible without the spread moving down and up. To be able to do this trade with a CFD-Forex instrument the bid-ask must first go down to 161,02 - 161,03, to buy at 161,03. Then, in order to sell at 161,04, the bid-ask must move up to 161,04 - 161,05.
trading platform can automatically work your order so
that it is always at the best bid or ask.
