XM REVIEW –REVIEW CONCLUSIONS

XM is a CFD / Forex broker based in Cyprus. The company was found in 2009 and it is regulated by many different government bodies such as CySEC, ASIC Australia, and FCA UK. XM provides segregated client bank accounts and it is part of the Investor Compensation Fund. All the above facts and licenses ensure the safety of trading funds to a very high extent.

As concerns trading platforms and technology, XM provides a wide variety of features and selections. Trading platforms include MT4, WebTrader, and MT5, plus a version of MT4 exclusively for Apple Mac. There are also 3 versions of mobile traders plus an MT4 multi-terminal platform for PAMM accounts. XM offers multiple trading orders and their order execution is considerably fast. Note that when I traded with XM during News-Releases there were some delays in my execution. In addition, the minimum stop-loss distance when placing a trading order is wide. These two facts combined make XM unsuitable for Forex scalpers.

The asset index offered by XM is very wide including 60+ Forex pairs, many Stock-Market Indices, Energies, Commodities and Precious Metals. XM spreads start at 1.4 pip without any commissions charged. Usually, you will find EURUSD at about 1.7-1.8 pips. New Account Registration is very easy and you can start a real account with as low as $5. There are many different account currencies and the maximum leverage is up to 30:1. The customer support is very good covering more than 15 different languages (English, Arabic, Spanish, Russian, etc.). XM offers 30-50% welcome bonus which can be used as free margin.

There is also a $30 free bonus promotion. You can open a real account and get this small amount without making a deposit. The free bonus is a nice way to test the XM platform without risk. Note that the bonus is not applicable for clients registered under Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd and Trading Point of Financial Instruments UK Ltd.

As concerns trader’s education, the broker offers extended video tutorials, seminars, online webinars and daily market analysis. XM is a reliable choice for advanced, beginners and professional traders. XM is good for all trading styles except for Forex Scalpers. Swing traders will feel very comfortable when trading CFDs on Futures as they can trade Oil, US-30 and many commodities without paying overnight rates.
