A financial license is issued by the financial authorities of the country and is a permit for conducting a financial business. Without this, you cannot carry out business activities. The countries with strict examination standards in the world are said to be the United Kingdom and Cyprus. The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has very strict not only license acquisition but also maintenance standards, such as having to compensate up to £ 85,000 per person in the event of a Forex trader’s bankruptcy. The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySec) is said to be the second highest screening country after the United Kingdom. So is XM licensed?

Loss compensation

There is a zero cut service for XM Trading. Zero cut is a mechanism that “even if the margin balance becomes negative, it is a service that compensates to zero”. In other words, you will never lose more than your money. Whether it is minus 100 yen or minus 1 million yen, it will be zero.

Withdrawal method

There are the following withdrawal methods for XM Trading.

  • Domestic bank remittance
  • Credit / debit card
  • Convenience store deposit
  • bitwallet

However, note from here that the only way to withdraw “profit” is by bank transfer. I think that the purpose of using XM is to make profits with FX, but for profits, there is virtually only one type of withdrawal method for XM, bank transfer.

However, with XM, you can receive a “bonus” when opening an account or making a deposit, but you cannot withdraw this bonus.

When you apply for withdrawal, it will take 2-5 business days for the money to be actually transferred to your account.

Payment method

With XM Trading, there are five deposit methods: The reflection time varies depending on the deposit method.

  • Bank remittance
  • Credit / debit card
  • bitwallet

For credit / debit cards, the funds will be reflected in the XM trading account in real time 24 hours a day, 365 days a year after the deposit procedure. There is no deposit fee. 
There is no deposit fee for bitwallet, an online wallet. If you deposit with bitwallet, the funds will be reflected in your XM trading account in real time 24 hours a day, 365 days a year after the deposit procedure. 
There is no deposit fee for STICPAY. When depositing with STICPAY, the funds will be reflected in the XM trading account in real time 24 hours a day, 365 days a year after the deposit procedure.

Other companies are good for scalping trade

If scalping trade is the main thing, Tradeview and Axiory are better. Because the spread is very narrow. For those who aim for shorts with trend-following strategies and day trading, XM will be fine. XM has a slightly wider spread and is wider than Gem Forex.

EA is at your own risk

XM can also be bought and sold automatically. You can use it, but if there is a one-sided trend, the unrealized loss will be large and all the principal will often fly away. Although it is your responsibility to invest in general, please be aware that EA trades can fail in one trend even if the winning percentage exceeds 90%.

Low risk, low return for beginners

Beginners should not be familiar with Forex yet, so start trading with a small number of lots. If you have one position and one lot, you will not suddenly go bankrupt. Let’s start low risk and low return.

Whether or not withdrawal is refused

It will be the most worrisome place for traders who actually trade. There is no Forex company that refuses to deposit, but I am wondering if I can really withdraw when I can make a profit. What about XM, as some companies run away at worst? The patterns of withdrawal refusals from past cases are summarized below.

Case studyContents
Bonuses cannot be withdrawnThe bonus you get with XM is just a boost when you make a transaction and you cannot withdraw.
The bonus disappears when you withdrawThe bonus is given at the time of deposit, but it is a mechanism that disappears withdrawal.
If you do a forbidden double-deckerXM is prohibited by having both a buy position and a sell position at the same time. You will be subject to withdrawal refusal.
When making an arbitrage transactionArbitrage is a comparison of two products with the same characteristics, and price differences may occur due to differences in time and place. XM is prohibited. You will be subject to withdrawal refusal.
Withdrawals to banks that do not have a SWIFT code registeredYou cannot withdraw because XM cannot be recognized.
Withdrawals at banks that do not support overseas bank remittancesYou cannot withdraw because XM cannot be recognized.
