Trading with WH Selfinvest
WH Selfinvest offer their clients almost unlimited trading options. Minimum deposit is 2.500 USD. The deposit is not transferred to the broker itself but to an independet bank account with postbank or barclays. As an investor you have the choice between the following financial instruments:
As a trader you can easily set on rising or falling rates of stocks, indices and commodities by means of CFDs (Contract for Difference). If the trader for example buys stocks in forms of cfds he isn't the actual possessor of the stocks but has the right to profit from rising or falling rates when the stocks are being sold or bought. The big advantage of CFDs compared to traditional stocks is that they can be sold short as well which means that one can even make money when the stock price falls.
Commodity Trading with WH Selfinvest
By means of CFDs and/or Futures you have access to many commodities:
- Crude oil, gas, heating oil, natural gas
- Gold, silver, copper, platinum, palladium
- Cocoa, coffee, sugar, orange juice, live stock, pork, cotton, soybean, corn, wheat
Please bear in mind that most of these commodities are only available on the WHS Pro- and Future Station. Metatrader 4 is mainly for trading currencies.
Using the leverage
As with other forex brokers you needn't deposit the whole value of the chosen instrument. The broker just needs a small margin as a security payment. If you would like to invest for example in stock CFDs you just need to deposit 10 per cent of the actual trading amount, with commodities it is even only 5 per cent or less. An example: If you want to buy BMW stocks worth 43.000 Euros you just have to deposit 4.300 (10 %) as a security. The leverage with WH Selfinvest is thus 1:100. WH Selfinvest has recently implemented the Metatrader 4 Platform for Forex Traders.
DAX30-CFD trading - 24/5
To date it wasn't possible for traders to trade DAX round the clock because of the markets' opening hours. This is new with WH Selfinvest: Trade 24/5 DAX30. Now you can open positions at night or before the acutal opening hour if you expect any signals from the market in the opening. With WH Selfinvest you can choose a so called "guaranteed stop loss" which means you don't need to worry about gaps. Your stop will be executed at the predefined level anyway.
