Trading Platform

XM Trading Platforms

One of the most important aspects of choosing a Broker, apart from the trading conditions offered, are the Trading Platforms available. XM currently offers the MetaTrader Suite of Platforms by MetaQuotes.

This comprises of MetaTrader 4, as well as MetaTrader 5 which allow clients to trade over 1000 instruments, including CFDs on Stocks, Stock Indices, Forex, CFDs on Precious Metals and CFDs on Energies. More about the Instruments available with XM in the ‘XM Products‘ section above.

MetaTrader 4 is perhaps the most popular Trading Platform chosen by traders all over the world. It’s excellent to use as it’s very easy for beginner traders to use, but also has some complex features for more advanced traders for technical analysis. Thankfully, XM has its own tailor-made MT4 & MT5 Platform Tutorials which clients can use in order to become acquainted with the Platforms.

Due to its popularity, MetaTrader 4 has established a huge ecosystem of third party Indicators, Expert Advisors and Scripts that can easily plug and play into the platform. There is also a huge community of traders that can offer Trading Signals directly from the platform.

The great thing about MetaTrader Platforms is that they are available on an array of devices. These are shown in the table below:

MT4 for PCMT5 for PC
MT4 for MacMT5 for Mac

The importance of device functionality is now more important than ever as more and more traders trade directly from their phones rather than switching to a desktop or laptop.

Customer Service

XM Customer Care

XM Customer Service is probably one of the best customer support experiences we have had compared with other forex brokers. XM offers 24/7 Live Chat, as well as typical E-mail and Phone support.

We were able to speak to a real human through Live Chat within 10 seconds which is extraordinary. Apart from this, the Broker offers Customer Service in 26 different languages.

In general, the XM Support Team was fantastic and managed to solve our queries with professionalism.

Sometimes overlooked, Support is a very important element of any business. Especially when it comes to a business which handles and holds money on your behalf.

XM Products

XM offers a huge range of products which have increased over the years to fit every trader’s appetite. The Broker used to focus mostly on Forex where it offered more than 55 Currency Pairs of Majors Crosses and Exotics.

Throughout its growth, however, XM has kept ahead of the market by introducing more than 1000 CFDs on Stocks and Commodities which are available via the MetaTrader 5 Platform.

It offers the most popular Commodities that we see from most Brokers, these being:

  • COCOA – US Cocoa
  • COFFE – US Coffee
  • CORN – US Corn
  • COTTO – US Cotton No. 2
  • HGCOP – High-Grade Copper
  • SBEAN – US Soybeans
  • SUGAR – US Sugar No. 11
  • WHEAT – US Wheat

When it comes to CFDs on Stocks, the list is endless as more than 1000 Stocks are offered, of which more than 450 are US Stocks. These contain the most popular Stocks such as Apple, Google, etc.

In addition to the above, there are 18 Cash Indices and 12 Futures Indices, again comprising of the most popular ones for trading.

Another Asset Class favoured by traders that has been introduced by XM lately are Energies, which comprise of Brent Crude Oil, London Gas Oil, Natural Gas, WTI Oil and WTI Oil Mini.

XM Forex Trading Advantages
XM Forex Trading Advantages

Through our trading experience with XM, the Broker honoured all our Stop Loss and Take Profit levels, even in times of high volatility. This was excellent as we did experience quite a lot of slippage with other brokers. The broker claims to be a Market Maker running an STP Execution Model, which is typical of most Brokers nowadays.

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 is easy and shouldn’t take more than 2 minutes!

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 & XM Withdrawals

Payments are another very important aspect when it comes to choosing a Forex Broker. Choosing a Broker that offers very few Payment Methods may make it harder as well as more expensive to deposit.

XM covers all the major brands of cards, such as Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and China UnionPay. Perhaps the second most popular payment method in Trading, being eWallets, are also offered, comprising of the likes of Skrill, Neteller and others.

Deposits from Credit/Debit Cards, eWallets and other electronic payment methods are instant, whilst other non-electronic payment methods such as Bank Wire take 2-5 business days depending on the client’s bank.

We have opened Accounts with XM from various jurisdictions, and one thing to make a note of is that it makes a huge effort in securing the most popular payment methods in all countries.

XM has an excellent Backoffice Department as withdrawals are practically as fast as they can get. Our withdrawal via Skrill was processed within a spectacular 2 hours. Our card withdrawal, however, which was processed on the same day, reached our card after 3 days. This is understandable though as card withdrawals are not instant, and require approximately 2-5 business days.

Lastly, none of our Clients has reported any complaints with XM when it comes to withdrawals so far. If you do have an issue at any point though, please do not hesitate to contact us so we can get in touch with an XM Representative on your behalf.
