Basic information about the broker
When you click on the “about us” section, you will learn that client success is a priority for the company, and it treats each client individually. The team consists of experts and trained professionals who are happy to help clients navigate the world of investments.
They also warn from the outset that margin trading carries a high level of risk it really isn’t suitable for every potential investor. Each client should therefore consider their investment goals, their level of experience and, most importantly, the extent to which they are willing to risk their finances. It is possible that a client could run into losses or even lose their entire investment.

Wonderinterest product offer
Wonderinterest Trading Ltd provides the following services to its clients:
- Floating Spreads (market conditions may cause spreads to widen or narrow beyond typical spreads)
- Wide range of instruments (forex, precious metals and CFDs)
- Trading of standard items
- Minimum initial deposit of USD 250 by bank transfer
- Financial leverage up to 1:30
Like any other broker, Wonderinterest offers a large range of options on where to invest. Specifically, it offers 2 types of trading instruments namely: CFD contracts and real shares.
If we talk about real shares, we are talking about an instrument that is mainly suitable for long-term investing. It is therefore good if the client is convinced that the funds he intends to invest in the purchase of shares will not be needed in the near future. The moment you buy real shares, you become a real shareholder in the company that issued the shares. This entitles you to so-called dividends.
Wonderinterest offers a really large number of these shares. We’re talking hundreds of them. You can choose from both American and European stock exchanges. Of interest to clients are shares in technology mega-companies such as Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook or Google.
If we start talking about CFD trading, the situation is different here. You need to understand that the broker is not selling you actual shares or commodities. They don’t even trade on a real stock exchange. So, clients need to be warned that such trades are high risk. This is what the broker does. Wonderinterest’s website is full of information about the risks of trading CFD contracts. This appears to be a fair deal from the broker and I definitely give it a thumbs up.
What is CFD?
We have already mentioned how CFDs are risky. But what is it? With these contracts, a client can speculate on the upside and downside without actually buying the contract. Compared to real shares, CFDs are suitable and ideal for short-term speculation. So, there is a need to understand this type of investing. Indeed, the company warns that it is completely unsuitable for ignorant investors and long-term investments!
Wondeinterest can trade many different instruments using CFDs. Here just in a nutshell:
- Shares (hundreds of types – European, American, and Czech titles)
- 10+ indices (S&P 500, Dax, Dow Jones)
- 50+ forex or currency pairs (EUR/USD, USD/CHF, GBP/USD and others)
- 20 + commodities (classic – gold, silver, platinum, coffee, oil, natural gas, and others)
As it says on their website, “Wonderinterest Trading Ltd is a Cyprus Investment Firm (CIF) supervised and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CYSEC)”. Also: “Wonderinterest Trading Ltd provides the following investment services relating to the financial instruments listed below in EU Member States.” Cyprus is probably the most popular jurisdiction for forex brokers due to its balanced regulation and favourable business environment. Brokers licensed by CySEC must meet certain requirements such as having at least €730,000, reporting their trades regularly and keeping their clients’ money in segregated accounts.
Using a demo trading account means you don’t have to worry about losing money, you can gain skills before you start trading. It is a good learning tool for beginners. This broker offers this option.
In a nutshell, you could probably say that the fees at Wonderinterest seem to be higher than some other brokers. However, it should be remembered that this company makes really big and risky trades that can earn their clients some really interesting money. And you have to pay for such a trade.
First of all, the commission fee for brokering the trade, the inactivity fee and also the swap fees seem to be high.
Unfortunately, I have not found the fee schedule directly, but everything can be found in the “trading conditions” section.
Fees for trading physical shares
Brokerage fee (commission) – A broker charges a commission fee for buying or selling physical shares. This tends to be very common. The size of the fee is 0.75% of the order, but a minimum of 500 crowns per trade.
So again, we are back to what I mentioned once before. The broker does not focus on smaller investments, but rather on the so-called “big fish”. A smaller order can therefore become very expensive (for example, you will lose 5% if you buy 10,000 CZK worth of shares).
Management fee – If a trading position is opened after the market close, the broker may charge a management fee. However, you would need to inquire directly with the broker about the size of the fee, as I could not find it on the company’s website.
Spread – Spread refers to the difference between the buy and sell price. Spreads on real stocks are very low, practically zero in percentage terms. This is very good news for investors.
CFD trading fees
Trade Arrangement Fee or Commission Fee – A commission fee is essentially a fee for arranging a transaction. Note, however, that the fee is paid at both the opening and closing of the trade. However, it is also important to note that it does not apply to all instruments traded, but specifically to CFD shares. The size of the commission is 0.25 % of the trade, but with a minimum of $25 (500 CZK) per transaction!
Spread – Spread refers to the difference between the buying and selling price. This figure tells you how favourable or unfavourable the trade rates are, or how much you lose for a two-way trade (i.e. buying and selling).
Other fees to mention are swaps, for example. These are also known as overnight fees. This fee is paid when holding a CFD position “overnight”. It is paid once a day, for each CFD position you trade that you leave open after the market you are trading in has closed. Should a client be looking to size these daily swaps, they need to visit the company’s trading platform and can view everything in detail here.
Trading – deposits and withdrawals
The good news for potential clients is that you can start trading with this company very quickly and without unnecessary delays. Just enter your name, email, phone number and the company will send you a password to your email address. After this, you can trade in demo mode.
If you want to go ahead and start trading in a sharp investment environment, you need to fill out a questionnaire, of course, personal and contact information, as well as information about your finances. If this is done, you need to deposit funds into the platform. At this point you can start trading.
However, we must be careful about one thing. If we would like to withdraw funds, we need to upload copies of 2 personal documents into the system (platform). This is a perfectly normal procedure. Every regulated broker is required to do this by the European Directive and the Anti-Money Laundering Act.
Let’s now move on to the information regarding deposits and withdrawals with this broker.
At Wonderinterest we can make deposits and withdrawals not only by bank transfer but also by credit card. Which I consider a big plus for clients. If we make a deposit by bank transfer, the minimum amount is 20 000 CZK. If we deposit funds via credit card, we can deposit only 2000 CZK.
The fee that needs to be mentioned is the inactivity fee. It is quite high for this company. So, if your account is inactive for 1 month, you will pay EUR 89 to the company. This is a monthly fee.
The good news, on the other hand, is that all deposits and withdrawals are free at Wonderinterest.
You can trade with the xStation Mobile app. All you need is your smartphone and mobile trading app. You can invest in tech giants like Microsoft, Alibaba, Alphabet or streaming service provider Netflix on your mobile phone.
If you prefer, you can trade on a PC. WonderInterest Trading Ltd uses the MT5 trading platform preferred by successful traders. MT5 offers intuitive buttons, suitable for both beginners and experienced traders. MT5, the successor to the popular MetraTrader4, includes several innovations to make trading easier and more enjoyable. You have 6 new pending order types, 38 technical indicators, 79 technical analysis tools and you can also export data to an Excel file.
Wonderinterest Trading Accounts
In the review we have already mentioned that the broker does not focus only on small investors, but it can offer interesting investment opportunities to large investors or companies that have decided to invest a sum of money even up to 1 500 000 USD.
If we click on the trading tab, we will immediately find the trading accounts section. Immediately, the trading options and what we can get with each account from Wonderinterest are spread out for us thanks to the clear tabs. I really like the clarity, simplicity and understandability here.
- COAL (minimum deposit up to 100,000 USD)
- WATER (minimum deposit of 100,000 USD or more)
- SOLAR (minimum deposit up to 300 000 USD)
- NUCLEAR (minimum deposit up to 750 000 USD)
- FUSION (minimum deposit of USD 1,500,000)
Of course, it is logical that the company offers services according to the amount of investor’s funds. However, for all these accounts the company will offer us the following services.
- Free trading account
- No fees for deposits and withdrawals
- Communication with the company in the local language
- Option to choose from 3 trading platforms
- 24/5 client support
Of course, there is an “open an account” tab for each of these trading account options. So, clients don’t have to search for a long time and can use their chosen variant immediately. I rate this very positively.
We have already discussed that the more money we invest, the more benefits we can take advantage of from the company. Specifically, this relates to spreads. For example, in the “SOLAR” account variant, the spreads are 45 % lower than in the “WATER” variant.
Website and media
The company’s website is designed in black and green. This is quite logical given the company’s focus on sustainable investments. Therefore, if you visit www.wonderinterest.com and want to see the entire range in detail, you can do so using the menu on the right-hand side.
The offer is very simple and client-friendly. I may be missing more information about the company. I would like to know much more about someone who will invest my funds.
I also miss the classic fee schedule or a better summary of fees.
Otherwise, the website is clear and simple. I especially appreciate that they are not “cluttered” and therefore do not distract clients from what is really important in the world of finance.
In this case, it is Mrs. Olívia Lacenová. She is particularly interested in fundamental analysis with a focus on green investments. She is also very experienced in commodities and precious metals. This lady also writes her own blogs where she explains to clients what they may encounter in the investment industry and how to react to it if necessary. So, thanks to Olívia, you can find out a lot of up-to-date information on topics related to green investing at the company’s booths every week. But that’s not all. Olívia also organises lectures for young people and collaborates on webinars on investment topics. If I were to rate this, I would definitely give it a thumbs up. First of all, I really like the fact that it is a specific person. Clients can respond very positively to that. Next – education in investing is a staple these days. Young people who are not very educated in financial services, products, may have a worse opportunity to navigate in the future. There is definitely a need to do any kind of education that will help young people get interested in the world of finance or even investment.
Advantages and disadvantages
If we were to talk about whether a company is suitable for trading your finances, it is important to remember that this company does its “business” a little differently. Let’s now take a look at the advantages and disadvantages that I see in the possibility of trading with Wonderinterest.
- CySEC license
- Czech language support and payments in Czech crowns
- Real stocks and CFDs in one place
- Deposits and withdrawals without fees
- Clear and client-friendly company website
- Deposits and withdrawals can be made both by bank transfer and credit card
- Media – mentions of the lead analyst on the company’s website
- High fees
- Minimum fee of 500 CZK per share trade
- Terms and conditions are in English only
- Lack of a specific fee schedule or list of fees

A client who chooses to do business with this company will certainly find its own positives. Fingers crossed that the investments grow.
