XM Trading Account Types

XM has three different Trading Account Types, which are Micro, Standard and XM Zero Accounts. The main differences between Micro and Standard Accounts, is that the contract size with Micro Accounts is 1 Lot equal to 1,000, whereas in Standard Accounts, 1 Lot is equal to 100,000.

Micro Accounts are great for traders who want to start small and not risk high amounts of money, however Standard Accounts can also be used by beginner traders as both types of Accounts offer a very low Minimum Deposit of $5.

Spreads & Commissions for Standard and Micro Accounts are identical, and range around as low as 1 Pip for all Majors, just as Leverage is identical with maximum leverage being as high as 1:888.

XM Zero Accounts on the other hand, have zero spreads as the name suggests, but have commissions which cost $5 per $100,000 traded each way.

XM also offers Free VPS Services for clients who trade mostly with EAs, and also always covers all transfer fees whether clients deposit with E-Wallets, Credit Cards, or Wire Transfers (above 200 USD).

XM Website

We found XMs website one of the easiest to use. Navigation is straight forward and the home page specifically tells clients what they will get when joining XM registration which makes it very easy right from the beginning to compare the services offered by this broker.

A newly introduced Research & Education Center has been established by the broker, which aims to provide insights and education to traders at both beginner and advanced level. We have found this section particularly useful, as clients have access to Market Reviews, Stock Market News, Forex News, Technical Analysis, Investment Themes and Analysis Videos. 

Furthermore, clients also have access to Educational Material such as Forex Webinars, Video Tutorials and some great Tools for Trading, including an Economic Calendar and Trading Signals!

XM Deposits/Withdrawals

A large array of Payment Methods are available for clients globally, depending on what country the client resides in.
