Futures TRADING
Is not expensive

Placing orders is cheap

SignalsRadar is not social trading, not copy trading and no robot.

Example the mini-DAX future. The all-in fee (before any commission discount and including the exchange fee) to trade one mini-DAX is only € 2,95. If you trade this future, you trade € 60.000 (if the DAX is at 12.000). A € 2,95 fee on € 60.000 is only 0,005% all inclusive.

The all-in fee is quickly recovered. When the DAX goes up only one point, your profit is € 5.

Example the mini-DOW future. The all-in fee (before any commission discount and including the exchange fee) to trader one min-DOW is $ 3,89. If you trade this future, you trade $ 125.000 (if the DOW is at 25.000). A $ 3,89 fee on $ 125.000 is only 0,003% all inclusive.

The all-in fee is quickly recovered. When the DOW goes up only one point, your profit is $ 5.

Do not trade futures...

if you do not have tick-by-tick quotes (see order routing below). The exchanges require a monthly fee for their real-time tick-by-tick quotes. The fee is around € 20. You can find the precise fees on the account application. The broker must collect the fee and pass it on to the exchange. Unlike most other brokers, WH SelfInvest does not up-charge real-time data fees.

1 The CME-CME market allows you to trade, for example, the Nasdaq future, the S&P 500 future and the forex futures.

2 Start of PC: charts start to accumulate when you open the platform. Start of day: charts starting at today's open price. CQG: historical data for all futures. 3 months intraday and 3 years end of day. VWD: historical data for the 55 most traded futures. Up to 5 years intraday and up to 15 years end of day. The big advantages are the long history and the fact that the charts of all the expired futures are compiled into one long chart. This allows real technical analysis and the back-testing of trading strategies. Most futures brokers provide historic charts which are only one or three months long.

3 A fee of € 40 is due if the minimum of 40 lots is not reached in the calendar month.

4 Instead of our standard margin requirement of 1/3 of the exchange margin, only 1/4 of the exchange margin is required. Overnight positions are not allowed. A client who keeps an overnight position will irrevocably be set to the standard margin.

5 Accounts above € 25.000 who choose this pack do not benefit from the increased leverage.

6 For futures in $ this commission is charged in $. For futures in € this commission is charged in €. The same for options. Volume discounts are available. You can either select a pack or discuss a volume discount: request a call-back.The discount is applied from the first order. A minimum number of orders is not required. The discount is always applied, even in months when you have low order volume. An agreed discount is never taken away.

The monthly total in the tables above, excludes the € 10 third party high-speed order routing fee (see below), which all traders need.

ORDER ROUTING

Increase your profits

To have direct market access, high speed order routing and tick-by-tick market data, traders use CQG technology. The broker debits the routing fee and passes it on to this technology provider.

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. Due to this missing data technical analysis (charts and indicators) is only approximate. Important chart types such as tick charts, range bars and renko bars are either not available or totally unreliable. The order book is missing key information. Limit and stop orders may not be executed. And, orders are executed at a slower speed, often at inferior prices.

High speed order execution makes a difference. One point better executed, means € 5, € 10 or € 25 extra profit per future.

   
CQG order routing fee: € of $ 0,50 per lot per order

CQG applies a monthly user charge of € 10. The fixed fee related to third party order routing is not included in the monthly total prices shown in the tables above, but it will be included and visible in the debit of the pack price on the account statement.

High-volume traders can opt for a flat fee of € 395 per month instead of paying the 0,50 per lot per side.

CQG offers up to 1.000 ticks per second. The traded market volume is the most precise available.

CLOUD TRADING – OPTIONAL

Cloud trading explained

A cloud trading solution allows traders to run and operate their trading platform on a professional server.

  • Cloud is useful if you wish to continuously run trading strategies. A professional server is more reliable than your PC and connection.
  • A second advantage is that the server can be accessed via IOS and Android apps. In this way you can use the full functionalities of a trading platform but still work from a mobile device!
  • Cloud is also one of the solutions for Apple Mac owners who wish to use NanoTrader.
 
   
Cloud trading (VPS): € 60, € 35 or € 10

€ 35 if you do 1 trade per day. € 10 if you do 2 trades per day. A trade consists of a buy and a sell order on 2 futures contracts, a CFD or a standard forex contract. 1 trade per day or a total of 21 trades per month. 2 trades per day or a total of 42 trades per month. Price excludes VAT.
