Just a few days of trading and getting profit from my trading, suddenly I got an email about the change in leverage from xm.
All trading profits that I made during the trade are deleted.
All for no apparent reason from XM.

Exness not delete my profit trading and reduce my withdrawal amount

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

I trade with XM, and make profit trading,
But XM suddenly sent an email changing my account leverage.
Then they wiped out all the profits that I had so far.
When I contacted their support, their answers were convoluted.
They also didn't give a reason when I asked why they wiped out all the profit I got.

And they emailed me to be required to withdraw all my funds by them,
but when I withdrew my funds, they didn't pay it in full, they deducted about $ 600 from all my withdrawals.

Several days I kept asking about my problem to their support, but the answer I got was not clear.
Until the time I received an email that they had no more correspondence with the problem I was experiencing.

Disappointed broker and scam broker
Be careful with this broker, when you lose they are okay
But when you profit they won't pay it.

Inability to use the proposed leverage effect

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I have been using Xm since 2017, and everything was fine, I was really losing more 'money than I was making and until August 12, 2020 when I spotted a really good opportunity that I jumped on on NZDUSD and make a really good profit of over $ 3000 which allowed me to cover all the losses I had experienced before. And this is what raged at the broker, so they changed my leverage by forbidding to use leverage above 1: 100 while he offered 1: 888, then all my bonuses were taken from me , then he offered a possibility to withdraw the profit by bank, when I tried they told me that they cannot authorize my withdrawal by bank. So many complications followed and I asked myself why all this today? Why wait until the day that I become profitable to change their policy when I have already been using the same strategy for 3 years? I believe that with xm everything is fine if the client loses money but as soon as you become profitable expect unpleasant surprises. I don't recommend this broker if you want to become a professional trader.

Possibly the best retail forex broker globally! Absolutely superb service!

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Trading experience - Platform response - 5/5
I joined and got validated on XM in early February 2020. I began trading with a fairly decent account that has since grown close to 190% largely due to the ability to utilize my strategy on their ultra low standard accounts where the spreads are low - based on the industry average - above average spreads favourable for most assets.

Customer care - 5/5
The customer care service is just a button away in the members area! Available in under a minute from clicking the button. They are quick to guide and assist on whatever you ask them.

Access to funds - Settlement/Withdraw - 5/5 - Industry best
Withdraws or settlements typically take under 2 hours via the MOBILE MONEY(AIRTEL OPTION) which is quite fair. I also notice that the currency conversion rate is taken at market.

Education - 5/5 - Industry best
The research and metrics shared via their research and education is surely quite the best. The only broker that can compare to them is IG but still XM beats them at indepth analysis. Believe me when I say so as I am in research and analysis in my dayjob.

Final Comment:
I respect other people's reviews but those trying to tarnish XM. Please step up to the challenge or opt for another broker but don't bring it down especially when their services are surely unprecedented! I overall give them a 5/5 - 100%

Reply by Chris Zacharia submitted Dec 10, 2020 Dear Server1,

Please note that I have investigated the issue raised in your review and I can confirm that your withdrawal request under question was correctly and successfully executed by our Back Office department as per our internal withdrawal procedures.

Notwithstanding the above, you have contacted our Company claiming that you did not receive the relevant funds as such, our personnel correctly informed you that in order for us to be in position to escalate the case we need some supporting documents. More specifically, you were requested to provide us with a Bank Statement starting from the date of the withdrawal (i.e., 25/11/2020) as proof of non receipt of the funds so as to investigate further with the Bank.

Due to the fact that we were not provided with the requested document, the relevant department of our Company was not in position to escalate the case and as such, I would like to inform you that once we are provided with the requested proof, all the necessary actions will be taken.

Thank you,
