XM broker offers its customers fractional pip pricing. This means that instead of quoting prices with four(4) digits, XM allows you to benefit from the smallest price movements by adding a fifth digit (fraction). Fractional pip pricing allows for tighter spreads and the most accurate quoting possible. This pricing is the result of our efforts to get the best prices from our multiple liquidity providers.

They took money without my permission send via BTC to another account that is not belong to me. Choose very carefully your broker, I do not recommend to use XM.

Faruk   24 December, 2020  

I made a withdrawal over a week ago and i still haven't received my money in my bank account. but The deposit takes a mater of few seconds to happen. i'm very unhappy with that i can't get money back now. called the bank and they said no money has been sent to my account from XM. stay away from this broker. it will end in tears.

Thabanag   24 November, 2020  

I wish I came to this review site before I started trading with with those scammers. I was trying to withdraw R1800 today and was told i violated rules. They use people to trade for them and steal their money when we try to make withdrawals.I wanna sue them or something. Why aren't we doing anything about this we all have the same complaints.

XM for me is a genuine broker. First they offer 30$ bonus and trust me this is the best in the industry since they have a very few conditions to meet for profit withdrawls. second, They dont charge any % for all deposits and withdrawals and moreover the withdrawal are very fast as compared to other brokers. They have a very huge options for CFD tradings. Overall, I have used XM for 5 years now and I am a very happy client. I also use FxPro and HotForex sometimes, they are also better.

Sanjog   24 November, 2020  

They will offer you a free $30 no deposit bonus and the account become profitable you will received an email that you violated rules without an explanation. If you asked their chat agent you ended up talking to a robot.

Jess   23 November, 2020  

Please read the T&S properly,

Sanjog   24 November, 2020

I got the bonus traded and made $61 profits then the moment I withdrew it I got an email that said I have viloted section b of the terms and conditions of the broker.

philani   29 November, 2020

I opened a standard account with xm and the spreads for currency pairs are way too high. then I opened an ultra low account still all I see is fixed spreads but when you review their services they say they offer tight spreads.

Kevin Rakuba   12 November, 2020  

I haven't recieved my withdrawal, it's been a whole week (7 days) now. XM isn't a trustworthy broker for real. The transaction says "approved" but there is no action that has been made. they're 100% scammers.

Siphiwe   30 October, 2020  

Siphiwe, did you finally get your money? Your response is crucial because I want to fund.

Forex Gump   15 November, 2020

I withdrew my money and xm decided to terminate my account and took all the profits I made now I have nothing on my platform. Xm is a broker you no longer have to trust.

Sarah   29 October, 2020  

I withdrew 2 times, I did not receive my money even today.

sithembiso   23 October, 2020  

Try withdrawal using the "local bank transfer" option, it's works for SAn bank accounts, you won't regret it.

Pieceofmind   23 November, 2020

XM closes my trades while I'm still making profits.

Pablo   19 October, 2020  

I have deposited my money in xm. But in trading sl and tp don't work. They guide to use lots from 0.10 and above no low that. Bad broker ever.
