Like most projects in life, success in trading partially depends on how you equip yourself. The broker and technology solution you will choose, directly impacts your trading results. Price feed, market data, platform stability and order execution must be the best you can get. In order to provide the best, WH SelfInvest has a policy of combining the optimal building blocks. For every financial instrument we combine the optimal account, price feed, technology and order execution. This results in three specialised accounts: futures, CFD-Forex and stocks. On the trading platform the accounts can be traded individually or they can be combined. Choose the optimal solution for serious trading.
Note: the specialised stocks account also allows the trading of futures and CFD-Forex. If you want to trade these instruments actively, we strongly recommend you use their respective specialised account. Here is what is different.
The minimum required to open a Futures account is € 5.000 or the equivalent in GBP, USD or CHF. The account is allowed to go below this minimum when operational. There is no maximum.
WH SelfInvest has designated Belfius Bank & Insurance and Macquarie Bank Ltd. to serve as depository banks and handle all clearing functions for our client accounts. Macquarie Bank Ltd. belongs to Macquarie Group Ltd. The company is quoted on the ASX. Belfius Bank is primarily a commercial bank. Client assets are separated from our company's assets and from the assets of other clients.
Trading futures in EUR, USD, GBP, ... via one single account? Yes, it is possible. A profit on, say, a future in USD remains in USD. In this way the client incurs no conversion costs as it would be the case in the mono-currency accounts offered by most of our competitors.. At the end of each month all balances are converted, without cost and at institutional exchange rates, in the client's base currency.
Funding the account can be done by money transfer to a 'client assets' account with Belfius Bank. WH SelfInvest will only accept transfers coming from the account holder. Transfers from third parties, including family members, will be rejected. The money will automatically be posted to your own individual account. The cost is € 5.
Transferring money out of the account is straightforward. For security reasons we only accept a written transfer instruction, signed by the account holder(s). Transfer costs are fixed at € 5 for amounts < € 30.000 and 0,10% (max. € 50) for amounts > € 30.000. Transfer form.
Trading accounts do not receive an interest. In case trading accounts are charged an interest or similar costs, the cost will be passed on to the client.
