Extensive Review

With more than 15 years of experience, XTB (rebranded from X-Trade since 2009) is one of the largest brokers in the world. They have offices in more than 10 countries, including Belize, UK, Poland, Germany, Spain, and France. XTB Group is regulated by the world's biggest supervision authorities including the IFSC, FCA, KNF, and CySEC.

As a regulated company, XTB holds all retail clients funds in a fully segregated account, meaning they are not mixed with the broker's operational funds. This enables traders to trade with confidence in their funds safety.

XTB tries to provide an easy-trading anytime and anywhere. They have a mobile application, xStation to realize that vision. Traders can access financial markets from their fingertips and choose from over 1,500 CFD markets including 48 currency pairs, cryptocurrencies, 20 indices, commodities (gold, oil, silver, etc.), stock, and 60 ETFs from around the world. This application can be downloaded in Google Play and App Store.

Traders also can access their platform by PC. XTB offers web trade platform with access to more advanced tools for more advanced traders. It's fully compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera web browser. Traders are provided with fast and reliable trade execution speeds. No wonder this platform has successfully presented XYB with awards such as Best Trading Platform 2016 by Online Personal Wealth Awards. Additionally, MetaTrader 4 is also available when trading in XTB.

XTB charges fees for forex, indices, and commodities trading. The amount of fees differ based on the types of accounts. For example, in Pro Accounts, traders have to pay a commission from $3.5 per lot for forex and commission from 0.08% per lot for stock CFDs and ETF CFDs.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. When trading, clients have to prepare strategies. Based on XTB's data, 75% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. Because of that, clients should consider their level of understanding on CFD trading and their affordability to take high risk.

Traders can increase knowledge by joining XTB's Trading Academy program. There is a vast array of contents that's geared towards helping traders, including video tutorials, trading courses, articles, and much more. Traders can choose a topic from different levels of education and enhance their skills across the stages of trading journey.

Furthermore, there are several ways to deposit funds in XTB, including bank transfer, credit cards (Mastercard, Maestro, Visa), as well as e-Wallets (Skrill, Paysafe, Neteller, and many more). But, some of these methods may incur additional charges. For example, when using Neteller methods, traders have to pay 1% of their deposited amount.

Traders can contact XTB's customer support that is available 24/7. They are ready to answer all of the traders' questions and solve the problems, whether by email, phone, or live chat.

Overall, XTB is recommended for traders who are looking for a broker with top-tier regulation and trading platform. Its education feature is also worth joining in as many traders are still in the process of perfecting their consistency and continue to learn the dynamic change in the forex market.
