All the Services provided on this Site are intended only to customers who are able to withstand the loss of any money they invest and who understand the risks and have experience in taking risks in financial markets.

This includes, but is not limited to financial market data, quotes and news, analyst opinions and research reports, graphs and data (“Financial Information”).
The Financial Information provided on this Site is not a piece of intentional investment advice. The Company offers Financial Information only as a Service and is therefore not to be construed as offering trading advice. The client agrees that he/she is a self-directed investor, and all orders entered are unsolicited and based on Client’s own investment decisions or the investment decision of Client’s duly authorized representative.

Submission of every withdrawal request is supervised by the finance department of WorldStocks. Note that for any withdrawal request, the client should make sure that his trading account has not been termed as Dormant (As defined in Section 16 of the Terms and Conditions) and is in line with any other section of WorldStocks Terms and Condition not expressly mentioned in Section 13. The Client must imperatively place at least 5 trades on the platform following his first deposit. In case the client’s trading account has been termed as Dormant, his withdrawal procedure(s) will be delayed or voided depending on WorldStocks sole discretion.
WorldStocks may offer the possibility to fund your trading account and to withdraw funds via Bitcoins (BTC). Note that withdrawals by BTC are only offered to clients who deposited using BTC. The company reserves the right to choose the withdrawal method without being committed to any method.
Without further notice to clients, Bitcoins sent by clients to WorldStocks are always converted by WorldStocks into the base currency of the WorldStocks account. When a client is depositing using Bitcoin, the client must accept the risk of loss due to the fluctuation in the BTC to USD/EUR/GBP exchange rate between the moment he sends BTC to WorldStocks and the moment when they are converted into the USD/GBP/EUR.
To withdraw funds, the client is required to place a withdrawal request on his WorldStocks account. Withdrawal can only be placed in USD/EUR/GBP depending on the client’s account. WorldStocks will convert into BTC (at its own BTC rate) the requested withdrawal amount indicated in the base currency of the WorldStocks account while processing the withdrawal. Withdrawals by BTC are subject to a Withdrawal fee in accordance with WorldStocks Terms and Conditions.
If open PNL exceeds the real balance of the trading account, WorldStocks reserves the right to delay or void any agreement and pending withdrawal in place depending on WorldStocks sole discretion.
As indicated in WorldStocks’s Terms and Conditions, when a withdrawal request is submitted, WorldStocks may take up to 3 business days to process the request. The client hereby understands and accepts that the withdrawal process is not instant and that the BTC exchange rate is subject to fluctuations which are not in WorldStocks control and WorldStocks should not be made liable for any discrepancy which occurs during the withdrawal process and after.
Consequently, WorldStocks cannot predict the number of Bitcoins the client will receive in his wallet pursuant the withdrawal.
WorldStocks reserves the right to charge a fee for any withdrawal request.
- Wire Transfers- 50 USD/GBP/EURO
- Credit Card-25 USD/GBP/EURO (Note that a Processing Fee is also applicable to credit card withdrawals)
Processing Fee for Credit Cards:
- USD- 10 or
- EUR – 7 or

- E-Wallet/ Other Payment Methods – 100 USD/EUR/GBP
If a trader wants to withdraw a minimum of $500 by bank wire transfer, he/she will have to pay an additional fee as per WorldStocks’s terms and conditions. The client also needs to ensure that his withdrawal request is aligned with WorldStocks’s terms and conditions. However, in the case of withdrawal requests by Credit Card, the maximum withdrawal amount per transaction cannot exceed $20k. Limits imposed on withdrawals via Credit Card are as follows:
- 3 cards per account
- 10 transactions per card

When a withdrawal request is submitted, WorldStocks may take up to 3 business days to process the request. When a client’s application is approved, he is required to wait for 5 to 7 additional days before seeing his funds in his bank account. The funds will not take more than 21 business days before appearing in the client’s bank account. In regards to profits, the minimum amount which can be withdrawn is 500 USD/GBP/EURO, including charges. WorldStocks will only process profits withdrawal via Bank Wire Transfer.
Equally, note that WorldStocks requires telephonic approval to finalize the withdrawal procedure. But as explained, no withdrawal will be processed in instances where compliance documents are missing and where a trading account has been termed as fraudulent.
Also note that for any withdrawal request, traders of WorldStocks should provide documents or any other type of identification confirmation (i.e. identity card, driving license or passport photo) in case Compliance Documents have not been previously submitted. WorldStocks’ finance department handles all submitted withdrawal requests.
Moreover, WorldStocks uses the ‘source to source’ policy when processing withdrawals. This signifies that if a trader has used a specific method to deposit funds in his/her trading account, the same payment technique will be used to process a withdrawal. For instance, if a trader uses Bank Wire Transfer to fund his/her trading account, the same method should be used when withdrawing profits, which is through Bank Wire Transfer itself.
In the event that a client’s trading account has been alleged with any kind of fraudulent activities or arbitrage, his account will have to undergo close investigation. During this specific period, the client shall receive only 10% of his withdrawable capital on a monthly basis, excluding any trading benefits associated with the account as from when the investigation has started. Following the completion of the enquiry, the remaining withdrawable amount will be transferred to the client’s account. If ever, the client’s trading account has been termed as fraudulent; sanctions will be taken. Please refer to the Fraud and the above section of the Terms and Conditions.
The company reserves the right to choose the withdrawal method without being committed to any method.
WorldStocks reserves the right to conduct a diligence check after a client deposited funds into his trading account. However, deposits posing a potentially higher risk or fraud will be checked thoroughly by the compliance department of WorldStocks.

In the event of any disagreement towards the services provided by the Company or encounter any technical issue, account holders and clients are strongly advised to register the complaint as per the procedures listed below. The purpose of the complaint registration procedure is to ensure fair and consistent complaint handling whilst striving to provide the highest level of customer service.
Customers are hereby required to provide WorldStocks with details of the technical issue(s) encountered or of the disagreement towards the services offered, in an electronic form to be submitted to WorldStocks’ customer support department. For an enhanced speediness and efficiency in the handling of the claim, the following details are required:

To ensure swift response and fair assessment of the claim, the user should provide the following:

WorldStocks may upon receipt of the complaint and depending on the complexity of the issue, decide at its sole discretion the temporary freezing of trading activities for the trading account under investigation to preserve the current state of affairs until a resolution is reached.
Should there still be any disagreement with the proposed resolution following the investigation, the client may send his/her grievances to the company’s Compliance Officer. The relevant contact details will be provided by WorldStocks’ Support Department upon request.
16. Dormant Account Policy
A Trading Account will be classified as dormant if it is inactive for a period of 30 days or more (i.e. no trade has been placed for an extended period of time of 30 days or more). As such, the client is required to constantly monitor his trading activity in order to keep his account active.
To keep a trading account active, clients will be required to place at least 5 trades per month. The requirements for these 5 trades shall be the same as set out in Section 13.
In case a Trading Account has been inactive for more than 30 days, WorldStocks reserves the right to charge a 5% levy from the current account balance (Hereby referred to as the “Dormant Account Fee”) for every inactive month.
The responsibility of keeping a trading account active lies on the client and WorldStocks reserves the right to retroactively charge the Dormant Account Fee depending on its sole discretion.
If in case a client does not want to be subject to the above-mentioned fee, then he must make an additional turnover which is equivalent to the Dormant Account Fee as prescribed by WorldStocks.
For example, a client’s Current Account Balance is USD 2500, and his account has been inactive for a time period of 90 days.
The Calculation for the Dormant Account Fee will be as follows:
Current Account Balance: $2500
1st Month (30 days) 5% of $2500 = (5/100)*$2500 = $125
Fees deducted $125, therefore $2500-$125 = $2375
2nd Month (60 days) 5% of $2375 = (5/100)*$2375 = $118.75
Fees deducted $118.75, therefore $2375-$118.75 = $2256.25
3rd Month (90 days) 5% of $2256.25 = (5/100)*$2256.25 = $112.81
Fees deducted $112.81, therefore $2256.25-$112.81 = $2143.43
Total Fees deducted = $125+$118.75+$112.81 = $356.56
Account balance after 3 months = $2143.43
The Dormant Account Fee which will be deducted from the above-mentioned account stands at USD 356.56. In case the client does not want the $356.56 to be deducted from his account, then he will be required to complete an additional turnover of USD 356.56.
In case a client is unable to place the required trades, he must inform WorldStocks of his situation, and WorldStocks may waive the dormant account fee based on its sole discretion.
17. Trading Competitions
WorldStocks regularly hosts regular trading competitions allowing traders to compete and win prizes. These competitions might be organized on a weekly/monthly/yearly basis, based on events. Prizes are mostly offered in terms of bonuses that are credited into the winners’ accounts. The bonuses are subject to the general bonus terms and conditions stated.

The right to impose the dispute fee if and when required, will rely solely on the company’s discretion.
Upon agreeing to these terms and conditions, the client also agrees that any dispute he may have with the Company or anyone on its behalf will be first brought by himself in his own capacity before the Company. Should the client opt to be represented against the Company, the Company may (a) first deal with him personally regardless of the representation; or (b) deduct all of its expenses for dealing with said representation from his account, in advance.

24. Practice Accounts
A practice trading account, also commonly referred to as a demo account, is a type of account offered by WorldStocks, which is funded with fake money (demo funds) that enables a customer to experiment with the web trading platform and its various features in a risk-free environment.
WorldStocks reserves the legal right but is in no way required to offer practice accounts to new and regular Customers, to set the conditions of these accounts and/or change them without notice to the Customer.
Customers who want to request a practice account must be eligible for membership as described in Section 3.Membership Eligibility and comply with WorldStocks KYC procedures as described in Section 19. AML Procedures of WorldStocks’s general terms and conditions.
A practice account is valid for 30 days as from the activation date. After the 30 days period, the practice account will be deactivated.
Practice Account Trading Specifications and Conditions
While much of the functionality of the live web trading platform features in the practice account, WorldStocks does not guarantee that trading features and specifications for a live account and a practice accounts will be exactly the same at all times. In normal conditions, a practice account benefits from the trading account specification of a ‘Starter Account’ as described in WorldStocks account types. The trading specifications associated with each account type, including a demo account may be changed by WorldStocks from time to time.
