Futures exchanges modify these parameters on occasion. Although this table is updated as often as possible, information may be outdated. Margins are expressed in Euro (€). The indicated margins can only be considered informative, as they are subject to fluctuations that may occur at any time and without prior notice.
The PATS server is available from 22.30 to 21.30 GMT.

The futures exchanges charge traders for real-time market data. WH SelfInvest must collect these charges and transfer them to the relevant exchanges. Depending on the provider you prefer for your high-speed order routing the fees applied by the exchanges vary slightly.
