No spread-widening – The spread of the CFD is equal to the spread on the stock exchange
The spread on our stock CFDs is exactly the same as the spread of the stock price on the exchange. Most brokers who offer stock CFDs widen the market spread. This increase is called a dealing spread. A dealing spread is an extra cost for clients. Clients are often not aware of the dealing spread as they are not equipped to compare the stock price and the CFD price.
We do not charge a dealing spread. Never have, never will. The spread on our stock CFDs is exactly the same as the price of the stock on the exchange.
Free real-time quotes
Clients get free real-time quotes. These are provided by Reuters or the exchanges themselves, such as the high quality Deutsche Börse price feed.
An outstanding Forex offer
Both commission-based forex and spread-based forex are available.
>80 forex pairs quoted 24/5
Any order size above 1.000 is possible
Volume discounts are available
Forex prices quoted in fractional pips (1/10 of a pip)
Fractional pips allow traders to place their stop orders and limit orders at more precise price levels. All CFDs and Forex pairs can be traded on the same account.
Key economic data
WH SelfInvest does not widen the spread on its forex pairs before the publication of key economic data! Many forex brokers advertise with very narrow spreads. Before an expected increase in volatility they widen their spread. WH SelfInvest does not engage in this practice.
Impressive order execution
Studies show that the main source of frustration clients have with their broker is the order execution. Our order execution will never be a source of frustration, on the contrary. Consider these five facts:
1. No slippage, no requoting
9 times out of 10 there is no difference between the price visible when you place the order and the execution price. If there is a difference, it will be extremely small, less than 0,03% in 98% of cases.
2. Proven high speed
9 times out of 10 orders are sent, executed and confirmed in less than 1 second.
3. A better execution price than your own limit price!
7 times out of 10 we are able to give clients a better execution price than the limit price they entered themselves! Other brokers keep this profit for themselves.
4. A better price than the market price
There is more good news. Whenever possible, clients get an execution price better than the market price! Due to a unique price improvement mechanism any order in normal market size will receive an execution price which is at least equal to, and possibly even better, than the market price of the stock on the exchange.
5. No hidden costs
There are no extra charges for telephone orders. There are no extra charges for liquidation orders. There are no charges for modifying or cancelling orders. There is no monthly inactivity fee. There is not monthly commission minimum. In short, there are no hidden costs.
Not a Market Maker
WH SelfInvest is a real broker. We take your order and execute it at high speed without intervention for a small commission. Simple. Our interests are aligned. Clients who make trading profits and who enjoy their trading, stay clients for a long time.
The majority of CFD-Forex brokers are market makers. They have a fundamental conflict of interest with their clients: your loss is their profit. This conflict of interest can lead to questionable behaviour such as hitting stop orders and order slippage. You may have already noticed this at your current broker.
safe and reliable
WH SelfInvest was established in 1998 and has offices in six European countries. Safe and reliable due to…
Secure transfer procedures
Segregated client assets held in dedicated client assets accounts
Client assets accounted for on a per client basis
Client assets deposited in major banks
Official asset protection schemes
Depending on the WH SelfInvest branch office you choose for your account, WH SelfInvest will use one of these depository banks. Our depository banks are members of their local asset protection and guarantee scheme.
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.
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. You can use this transfer form and fax or e-mail it to us.
You do not pay currency conversion costs
A profit (loss) in a currency other than the base currency of your account will be converted into the base currency FREE of charge.
