I have been with XM for about 3 months. I don't know whatsup with these 1 star reviews, seems like its more on withdrawal issues. Can't really comment on that since I have not yet withdraw any money.

Normally from forums I read that brokers that offer bonuses are scams but still I decide to give it a try since XM offers MT4 platform. The bonus is in a form of "credit" which will increase your total equity. You are not allowed to withdraw this credit, however I believe you can lose the credit in a trade which is still a good deal.

This is my 3rd broker through my trading journey of 4 years. Initially I was worried since XM is operating from Cyprus but I have not encounter any problems with them so far (3 months only). I have open more than 100+ trades in MT4 and never get any requotes or error message.

The best part I feel is that the account manager actually call you up and talk, I mean it is really a very good service honestly which not many brokers offer.

My review may not be strong since at the date of this writing I am only with XM for 3 months but all I can say is I am satisfied. If s*** happens...(touch wood) I will definitely update my review.

Today I placed a sell stop order at 0.9270 (AUD/USD) before the news announcement (CPI), my order got executed at the same price but Xemarkets changed my order from sell stop to buy limit. Price went down by around 30 pips but instead of making profit I lost $98. Furthermore, they claim to have guaranteed stoploss which is untrue because my account in now showing -$17.
And they also cancelled my bonus of $185 yesterday while I was having many open trades due to which I lost more than 70% of my account balance.
I have all the proofs and screenshots and I can prove whatever I've said.
I've had terrible experience with Xemarkets.

Dear Mujahid Hussain, I would like to inform you and that in accordance to your trading logs you have actually placed a Buy Limit and not a Sell Stop order. XM does not alter any client?s trades as you are suggesting. Kindly see below. 2013.07.24 04:29:11 182.XXX.XXX.X6 '2XXXX8': order #1XXXXX6, buy limit 0.40 AUDUSD at 0.92700 Moreover, your accounts are being accessed from multiple IPs (from different continents) within a 10 minutes span. In regards to the stop loss, on your mentioned trade you have not placed any stop loss value, however if you are referring to stop out, kindly note that the trade has been executed during market news. It is important to know that in sharp and sudden market movements it may be not possible to trigger stop out at its value, nevertheless in those cases, and in your case as well, when client?s account goes into negative balance we always reimburse the negative value, as it was applied in your case (kindly check EXP01 comment in your MT4 history) . Your negative balance was -$7.72 and not -$17. In regards to the bonus, kindly note that in accordance to our terms and conditions clients who participate in rebate programs through third party websites affiliated with XM are not eligible to participate in the Bonus program. Thank you Carol P. ? Official Representative of XM (Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd).

This company is going to be next scammer very soon. They just sent me my initial deposit and ate all my profits...!!
Last week everything was OK. The live chat person kept telling that your money will be processed soon. And then suddenly my

account got terminated...!!
They are just following a new scheme like if the client losses, then good or else if he wins, refund the initial deposit.
I guess for this they are using 100% bonus offer to trap beginners, so that they will collect the money.Either they will run

away or else they will eat the client's all money by giving disgusting and non-logical reasons.
GuyS dont deposit with this broker.As they are not giving withdraw in 24 hour, not even in a week. Rather,if u will win and have some profits,they will close your account without giving any valid reason.
I will fight for this as i know i was true from my side and i can prove who was wrong .Hope FPA will help me.

2013-07-03 2Star this company is really making fake promise regarding withdraw in 24 hours. Leave 24 hour,i guess they wont give your withdrawal in a week also. i applied a withdraw to my skrill account, they are saying your withdraw will b done asap.They pretend to be very helping, but they are just opposite to it, careless and unprofessional and unhelpful.
It has been around 5 to 7 chat in these 4 days,every time they say same thing"i have informed back office, your withdraw will b done on priority base" They have just changed the definition of priority.

My account 2135965. I use Z300205177xxx to deposit XM account. And I make withdrawals via Z300205177xxx, too. But they said that they don't accept funding from third party (Because My name on webmoney is different name on XM) and They said that they would refund my money. I agree it but I'm waiting more 3 days so I comment here. My purpose only receive refund, please check it for me, thank you.

Dear Budiono, Order #1105492 was a Sell Order with a Stop Loss at 101.222. Sell Orders are opened at the Bid Price and closed at the Ask Price. Kindly note that MT4 charts are showing only the Bid Prices this is the reason you see 101.200 as the highest price. Your order was closed at the Ask Price and the highest Ask Price at 22:08:44 on 05.07.2013 was 101.225 (Bid Price + Spread). In order to display live ask price line on your chart please right click on the chart window >>>properties >>>common tab >>> tick ?show ask line ?.

Dear Ahmed Mostafa Ahmed Afifi, We are always committed in providing excellent service to our clients and we take pride in our reputation. As a European Union regulated broker and since we comply with many authoritative bodies, there are certain procedures that we are bound to follow such as KYC (know your client). I would like to highlight that the reason for closing your accounts and refunding back your initial deposit is due to the fact that you have provided us with edited documents as a proof of residency. You were initially residing in Kuwait and the first account you opened with us was verified. However after more than 6 months you opened another account, and by law we are obliged to verify your account again. You have re-allocated to Egypt (and you gave us different excuses for your move) and the documents you have sent us were not correct. Therefore we requested you to send us certified documents from the court or a bank, but your documents were sent to us certified by a University. Your account was undergoing investigation by our compliance department and after full review your documents have been deemed unacceptable by our company. Moreover, your accounts are still being accessed from a Kuwait IP and an Egyptian IP, even though you have informed us that you are currently residing in Egypt. Your account manager was always in contact with you and he has tried calling you several times however you refused to be contacted by phone and just to be reached by e-mail. Kindly note that in such case and under the provision of the laws specified in our terms and conditions, XM is bound to refund the deposit back to the credit/debit card, close your trading account (s), nullify all trades carried out in your trading Account, and to cancel all losses/profits garnered in your trading account (s). XM has already refunded back your full deposit of $500. We strictly advise you to read our terms and conditions which are transparently posted on our website. XM operates and complies with all the European laws and directives for the prevention of fraudulent transactions, and as such is not bound to, nor tolerate any threats and/or comments on any forums posted by clients as means to receive money after their fraudulent actions. Thank you Carol P. ? Official Representative of XM (Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd).

The best thing about XEMarkest.com is that they have excellent client service. They have always been in contact with me and they are indeed very helpful. Other than the telephone conversation, one can always chart with anyone including the staff in client services. In particular, Adam has been of much help and is always willing to assist.

As I promised, I would like to report what happend. People from XE Markets answered to my questions very fast. My account manager even called me. The reason for closing my positions was simply that they expired. But, there is something I don't like. The name of the positions was OIL-JUL13. So, I assumed that they expire on 13th of July. But no! The expiration date was different then that. The name was very misleading. And the expiration date is unfortunately not written in the trading platform, but only on their web site. So, the lesson was: never assume anything until it is explicitely stated. I learned that the hard way :(.
Other thing that they could possibly change is to inform the trader about low margin by SMS. Once it happend to me to have low margin and they informed me by message on the trading platform, but not by e-mail or SMS. SMS would be great. I think that some other brockers do exactly that.

2013-06-16 No Rating I trade wit XE Markets for a while and I used to like it. I withdraw money and they came to my bank account in three business days.

But yesterday (Sunday) a very weird thing happened. Three of my positions suddenly closed. Since on Sunday markets don't work, price wasn't changing. Only two possible explanations that come to my mind are:

1. Somebody hacked my account,
2. It is a server error

I have read on another forum complaint from a trader that his positions were closed by the server, XE Markets admited the errror and he was refunded. I hope for the best, since I lost a lot of money. I wrote to the support team and to my account manager and expect their explanations. After that I will report here.

Dear Nikola Miljevski, We would like to bring to your attention that you were trading Crude Oil and the reason for the sudden closure of your positions is due to the expiry date of the contract which ended on 16th June 2013. We would recommend you to check the 2013 Calendar for Future Instruments to avoid a sudden closure. You can check the calendar for standard account here ? http://www.xemarkets.com/pdf/spreads/spreads-standard_2013.pdf or visit our spreads page http://www.xemarkets.com/spreads Thank you Carol P. ?

I decided to join XE after I see some comments here. I believe every response from Official Representative of XEMarkets they will make an effort for improvements.
After RIP of Liberty reserve, I can make withdrawal by Skrill easily & fast .
At the beginning I found that thats true XE has issue with their server response, its difficult to make Pending Order specially during economics news.
But last 2 week I feel server response getting improved, and the most important is I got good price, almost no slippage or widen spread even though during high volatile market.
If they keep this good points! Then I will keep stick on this broker and recommend it to my friends

Too much lag, and weird events like platform freezing and execution
delay... Been with them since November 2012. Everything was great
until the beginning of 2013. They say "no dealing desk" but it's
not true, they have a "DEALING DESK" and you can see it whenever you open a trade on your platform, it's written in bold!!
I'm thinking about leaving them soon and try something else, because it is getting really scary...

I'm going to start taking videos of my trading sessions, to prove everything I just said, at least people will know what they are getting into
Reply by Chris Zacharia submitted May 27, 2013:
Dear Mensah, Firstly I would like to make it clear that XEMarkets does not advertise, state, or claim that it is a NO Dealing Desk Broker. In terms of order execution speed there are several factors that affect forex trades, such as market volatility, trading volume and overall system availability which, in combination, or separately, may cause minor delays at the time of trade execution. Moreover, an even more important parameter in terms of trade execution speed is whether or not these trades are placed during important economic news announcements. It is important to note that you are trading during news releases. Thank you Carol P. ? Official Representative of XEMarkets (Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd).

I have 3 years of experience as Fx trader and had accounts with two different brokers. I was not satisfied so I did my homework and was searching for a GOOD Forex Broker. I decided to open a live account with XEMarkets. And I have no regrets. Customer service representatives are friendly and professional. Today I had some problem with my mt4 (it was my mistake) so I talked with live chat rep Zuzana Franzis. After a while I asked her to call me home, and 5 sec later my phone did ring. She was very helpful and professional and she fixed my error. I like their fast order execution, instant deposit with credit card, withdrawal within 24 hrs (check other brokers how much time it takes!), no deposit or withdrawal fees, no minimum limit to opening an account, their leverage and the possibility to change the leverage, webinars, bonuses... and many many other things. Just go to their website and you will see what I am talking about. I am really satisfied with them. Even here, on this forum, their official representative Carol P. reply to each complaint, what I can not see with another brokers. And, BTW, I think that most complaints are because of a traders ignorance or that they don’t read the rules. When a trader expect a “real phone call” from his personal manager because he had a “Margin Call”...so please, go back to BabyPips and do your homework – study! Anyways, I highly recommend this broker.

Hello to all of you involved in xemarkets.com.
I was involved with this broker for a long time. I also have to consider a few of proving to them. I am very pleased to serve the same manner as their MT4 platform.But that was before. Right now everything is fine except the slide when the command is too long. I have to take from 40 seconds to 1 minute to start implementing the new command (this is the strongest market fluctuations). And lost 10 sec to 20 sec for start when market little changed. I tried contacts and they said because of my connection. So then I went to many places with higher connection, I even use the demo account to test the speed of command.I realize this does not change except for Demo on orders very quickly.When I first joined to said speed is perfect for this broker. But now this is too bad. I will continue to stay here, if this is improved. Thank you for your dedicated service during my xemarkets involved. ("__" - sorry i'm bad en :))

Dear blaze132, In regards to your order number 21359 the request to close the order was received from the same IP address used to login to your platform, therefore you will need to check from your side whether an automated trading tool is placed or if someone has logged in to your account using your IP address. In regards to your complain about the USDCAD, the price that you checked from the chart shows the bid price only, whereas the price of 1.02973 is for the ask price. You claimed to open a long position however in fact you have opened a short position. Please bear in mind that sell positions are being opened on bid price and closed on ask price, in order to display live ask price line on your chart please right click on the chart window >>>properties >>>common tab >>> tick ?show ask line ?.

I sent my withdrawal request about 2 weeks ago to Xemarkets as 27000$. After following a lot and complaining, they paid just 12918$ last week and promised to pay the rest within 48-72 hours but is remained for 7 days and they refuse to pay. Even I have complained against it to Cysec about this issue.
I am really worry about it and I have their emails which proves that their avoidance to pay and just telling "it will be paid ASAP".

Dear Ali Khoshkam, As your account manager has informed you that the delay of your withdrawal is due to some compliance matters with WebMoney, therefore the delayed time is not in our control. As a result, we offered you an alternative whereby we can send your profits via a different withdrawal method however you refused to do so. XEMarkets is already following up with your case with the payment provider. Unfortunately you will need to wait. We are still willing to process your money with a different withdrawal method if you do not wish to wait any longer. Thank you Carol P. ?

Excellent support, my account manager is fast to answer by mail and by phone. They really care about the customer, no requotes, no slippage, no problems al all for me. I'm sorry that they removed bonus offers to who is registered by third websites but this is not very important for me. The point is that i feel that my money is safe, that's all i need. And i must say thank you to xemarkets for making the mt4 mac platform available. Nice job. i registered my first account with them 2 years ago and i don't regret it.

I have had my account since Trading Point days. I recently experienced a platform problem and loss twice the amount of the transaction. I was treated rather ordinary at first with the customer online chat but nothing wrong there. My account manager contacted me by phone and by email and everything was resolved within a few days. They refunded my account and more.
No issues with slippage and/or requotes whatsoever.
I own accounts with other brokers as well and because of the service and low spread I will stay loyal to them.
Untill proven otherwise.

Keep up the good work!

Very bad experience with this broker.

I opened an account on May/1 with 20 USD to try, because I read some bad reviews here. After I made some profits, they delayed all my orders from 200ms average (I work from a VPS in UK) to more than 3 sec, sometimes 20sec, 30sec!!, so the big slippage arises... It's an unethical behavior and I don't know who loses more with this kind of tricks, because me and maybe some traders who are reading this review will stay away of this broker.

My account was 2133976.

Dear Oscar V., We would like to bring to your attention that you have made a 29.5% return on your initial investment with XEMarkets. That is a very good return keeping in mind that you have used scalping strategy and traded mainly during news release. In regards to your complains about the delay in trade execution, we would like to clarify the cause of such delays. In terms of order execution speed there are several factors that affect forex trades, such as market volatility, trading volume and overall system availability which, in combination, or separately, may cause minor delays at the time of trade execution. Moreover, an even more important parameter in terms of trade execution speed is whether or not these trades are placed during important economic news announcements. In the market conditions mentioned above, prices can change quickly. This usually happens because many investors trade simultaneously and search for more favorable prices to open positions. At XEMarkets all trades are executed via a queuing system through our servers, which may result in a delay in the execution of orders. We apply the ?First Come First Served? (FCFS) model of handling incoming requests for placing orders, which at times may also lead to a delay in confirmation from our liquidity providers. In addition, fast and sudden price changes in symbols, combined with a huge amount of trades pending to be confirmed and to enter the market are all factors contributing to a slow execution and a slow confirmation of trades. XEMarkets offers all clients the best available prices taken directly from our liquidity providers and which reflect the current market situation. We would like to reassure you that we fill all our clients? orders at the best available market price at all times. We also do our best to provide you with the lowest possible spreads combined with the best trade execution speed. Thank you Carol P. ? Official Representative of XEMarkets (Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd).

I used to absolutely admire the way their mt4 execution worked, no requotes and no slippage but of late, i notice that there are no requotes but the slippage is getting a little too big.. i really wish they improve on it. I used to be very happy with them and thought I have arrived at a perfect broker but this issue is beginning to cost me a lot.
Reply by Chris Zacharia submitted May 8, 2013:
Dear Prabhu Shankar Ramachandran, Slippage hardly ever occurs if you trade at XEMarkets. In volatile market conditions (i.e. during market-moving news events, or particularly in active markets) market orders get executed at market price if prices have not moved in the accepted latency times. However, when the price has moved significantly, you will be filled at the best price available. This can work out to be either in your favor or against it. Moreover, spreads may also widen. At XEMarkets we make every effort to keep these discrepancies as low and as rare as possible thanks to our partnerships with multiple liquidity providers. In order to avoid slippages, we strongly advise you to avoid trading during the news. At times, especially when important economic news is released, you may be filled at a different rate than the one you had requested, which is due to a sharp rise or fall in market prices. XEMarkets guarantees that your orders are filled at the best available market price, which serves your benefit. Thank you Carol P. ? Official Representative of XEMarkets (Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd).

I have mini account with XE and on opening they promoted 100% bonus and they give gave me 100% credit.

No problems in anyway. Fast and good connection, no spikes ( alltho they are MM ), no delays, no rejections.Pip spread is floating, they can go bit up on news or sumthing, but for most commonly traded pairs spreads are low and rly not as issue. Of course if u gonna trade, idk North Korean whatever they have against Somalian beans, spread will be higher than avarage...

By far, the best asset of XE is their customer support and from mine personal experience, account manager Ms. Silvia Vassileva. With her approach to customers, me for one, is the best PR thingy for the company and as long as they hire such people, and as long as she is gonna handle my account, I will stay with them and would recommend XE to anyone.

Anyway 4 stars for them so far, not giving 5 as don't wanna be interpreted as affiliate or sumthing like it..

I still hold my opinion, XEMarkets's service was not good, I never open new account or deposit at XEMarkets.

2013-04-24No Rating Adam Kyriakou - account manager called me after I posted review here, he said Liberty reserve has a problem so my withdrawal has been delayed, he promised to immediately resolve. 5 min later, my withdrawal request processed.

I think, at least he need inform me as soon as LR has problem, don't let me wait so long although LR still operating normally at my country.

Anyway, thank Adam.

2013-04-23 1Star My account number : 2000619, withdrawal through Liberty Reserve.

I also waited them more than 40 hours, but my withdrawal still has not been processed.

I lived chat with customer care, they said will inform the back office as quickly as possible but too long my withdrawal was still pending. After that I also sent email to back office (at working time of them) but nobody reply me.

Now I'm really worried about this broker. As my past experience I don't believe this broker's service excellent, everyone should stay away from this broker.

Dear Nguyen Ly Dac,

Kindly note that there were some technical difficulties from Liberty Reserve’s side which caused some downtime to their services thus deposits and withdrawals were delayed.

You have already been informed by your account manager about the situation.

Your withdrawal is now processed. For any further inquiries we recommend you contact your account manager directly.

Thank you

1st of all i want to say xemarkets is one of the best stp broker.. No requots no slow server connection. Excellent support team, specially very thak full to Mr. Jeet Sigh. He is very nice person..

After having issues with scam Nigeria brokers(liteforex and insta forex)that usually delete profit,decided to look for a good
broker.Discovered xemarkets and read a few good review about them.I deposited a few amount to my account(37868) in january
they gave me 50% bonus(which they removed after first withdrawal.I dont care because it is stated in their terms and condition,and i dont advise any trader to use
their bonus because it can never be in your favour.so ignore any bonus and focus
using your trading capital because i think those bonus and
there rules are designed to make you lose money) and my experience goes thus:
1. execution is fast as most trade are less than 5s
2. no reqoute
3. no stop hunting(there was a situation when the market
remains 0.1 pip to touch my stoploss and it reverse
4.no slippage as takeprofit and stoploss are filled accurately even
at high impact news
5.during normal market condition,spread is tight but tends to
increase during news,market open and market close so beware
to adjust your stoploss so you would not be caught in
6.After trading for about 12 weeks,made more than 100% profit
and already withdrawn four times,first two arrived less than 24
hours and the third one arrived less than 48 hours(they claimed
too much withdrawals because of the cyprus issues)the last
one less than 5 hours,although they are all small amount
I took my time to write this because i love everything about
them and i dont have any issues with them
so for now am recommending xemarkets to any trader who wish
to take full control of his trading.
And please this review is only based on my 14 weeks experience with them and am planning to stay with them.I will update my review as time goes on

I have requested withdrawal $10 through Liberty reserve 3 days ago. They never back my money until today. They have delayed by saying silly reasons. I have requested withdrawal to same source where I have deposited from. But they have denied to withdraw, They do not obey regulation while accept deposit, But while asking withdrawal too many formalities and telling about regulations. Most of the brokers withdrwal through LR is instant, but for this scam broker, they need 24 working hours. They work 9 hours per day , So they need about 3 days to send withdrwal. It is only 10$ withdrawal they delay, so what about thousands? they will delay at least 1 year or never pay

Dear Shaijudeen, We would like to bring to your attention that after further investigation we can conclude that from the screen shot of your Liberty Reserve account, we were not able to cross match the information with the name registered with your XEMarkets account. As such, the payment is categorized as a third party payment, and XEMarkets has returned back all your funds regardless of losses/profits incurred and has blocked your trading account. We would also like to highlight that your continuous insulting and offensive emails to XEMarkets will not change our final decision nor will you receive any reply from our side if you continue to use offensive language.

When I first started trading with them, they were awesome, execution was perfect, tight spreads and no-requotes but after a month when I was making profit and almost tripled my account balance then everything changed; execution became terrible, i was getting slippage and frequent disconnections. Its almost impossible to trade news with them as the pending order is executed after too much delay with a slippage of sometimes more than 25 pips.

I have opened account with Xemarkets.com on 15 Feb, my documents approved in 2 hours. Since then I have withdrawn 4 times which all processed very quickly.

My xemarkets account manager Valentine Kostine is very caring and he provided really good support.

Deposits are instant and I received bonus immediately after deposit.

The only thing I observed is not good : when you withdraw some amount you can not see your request in history, which support promised to provide this option too.

Dear Forum. I have account with Xemakets. I have 3 years experience and, unfortunately, is not always positive. I really like this company. You can open account with even small deposit also and available minimum lot size from 0.01. You can also change account type if you wish anytime and trade with higher lot size. Xemarkets doesnt charge fees on deposit or withdrawal moreover they cover transaction fees in case of deposit. Which is rare among the brokers. I really liked the phone call personal account manager, she was very kind and helpful, always there to assist. All this makes the mother tongue. Thanks to Monika Budai.This broker wants to keep their clients for long term therefore offers excellent, flexible and honest service and provide professional support (seminars, webinars, etc.), doesnt want swallow clients' money.

Dear Carol P.,
Like you wrote, refund was made, but the problem arises from the fact that I asked to be transferred to Skrill account all money and you transferred part, and refund part. The problem is that the Skrill my account is tied up with credit card, which does not give access to it fund the money, but only to charge. So it was not at all clear why I only got part of the money.
I had to turn to the bank for this issue and I and after a few days I received the next part of the money.
So there was a misunderstanding, I confirm that the XE transferring all money.

Thank you for your support

2013-03-26 1Warning, the problem with money withdrawal, still correspond with broker, but so far, I see XE do not want to return my money.

Dear Ece G,

Kindly note that XEMarkets has the right to reverse the granted deposit bonus from client’s trading accounts irrespective of incurred profits or losses.

Furthermore, if XEMarkets suspects that a Client has abused the fair rules of the 100% Bonus or any other promotion by hedging his positions internally (using other trading accounts held with XEMarkets or externally (using other trading accounts held with other brokers), XEMarkets reserves the right to immediately reverse the granted deposit bonus from the Client’s trading account(s) or from the winning hedged account without the consent of the Client.

The terms and conditions of every promotion XEMarkets offers are transparently printed on our website which we advise our clients to read before opting in. You have accepted the terms and conditions of the bonus which clearly state that any form of abuse will lead to the removal of the bonus.

It is unprofessional to be calling a reputable company a scam when the reason behind the withholding of your bonus is due to your trading pattern which was fully explained to you. Kindly note however that you can still continue your trade without the use of the bonus.

Thank you

I fully confirm and support Ganesh' comment on XEM's bonus program. I first lost all of my equity, even went below 0 and could finally come back gaining in the end nearly 3.5 times my initial investment. I would have long get closed for business anywhere else.
So I keep my account open, maybe I will get back to them when I have a clearer view on Cyprus financial situation and feel confident that the problems I experienced lately were due to exceptional circumstances.

2013-03-26 No Rating So to close this case, I confirm my credit card was refunded but in 4 small fractionnal payments on value 22nd and 23rd. Unfortunately customer service at Visa did not initially reconcile them with the total amount I was expecting which explains my late confirmation.

2013-03-24 No Rating Dear Carol,

Of course I will give you a follow up which I think is fair, and that precisely motivated my comment mentionning that I fInally received your confirmation of payment after 3 DAYS!!! And I did not enjoy it either.

How dare you now asking me for fairness and nearly to justify myself when in the end your own company did not respect its own commitment of 24h. delay on withdrawals?
Please take your own responsability and admit you have offered a very poor service on that aspect.
In addition I guess you have to improve your communication with you customers. We had to wait until Friday 22nd to receive an email from your company confirming the safety of clients funds when some of your competitors on the island sent the same info already on Tuesday, which was crucial given the serious uncertainties around the Cyprus financial situation.
Should I had received this memo earlier I, and supposedly many other of your clients seemingly overloading your back-office with similar requests to mine, would have taken all this more easily...

To end on a more positive note I must admit that I was otherwise always satisfied with the forex executions and conditions.

2013-03-2No Rating I finally received a confirmation of execution of my withdrawal request yesterday afternoon. But I am still waiting for my credit card issuer to confirm payment reception.
So this should be solved now otherwise you will hear from me...

2013-03-20 2Star Just want to inform traders that I have been trying during the last 48h. to get my money back in vain. Less than $2000 but seemingly they are having some trouble and everyone there just repeat over and over again their stinking promises mantra of "asap payment", "pushing the best they can on their back-office" which seems overloaded as a matter of fact...
Not only are these people desperately trying to gain some time but keep telling lies such as "I promise we have no liquidity problem" as told by my account manager Mrs. Helene Zenios.
Their onlime customer-care chat is as useless as robots, repeating over and over that they apologize, ask for patience and promising their b/o will process my withdrawal request asap etc...
MEGA B...S....!
Not only do these people lye but they oblige to keep my account and my money inactive for more than 48h. loosing trade opportunities being totally unable to give a clearer deadline of execution than "as soon as possible". Reminds me of alcoholics promissing they stop drinking today!

Xemarkets mention on its website thta withdrawal requests are processes within 24h. delay: BS. That client funds are held n prime international banks: not sure but facts lead me to think: BS!
So Mrs. Carol P. what can you tell us about this please?
Scam or not?

Our backoffice desks has confirmed that “Your withdrawal has been processed already since 21/3/2012.” and you have been informed about this by email.

Its truly not appreciated coming to a site like the FPA posting words like MEGA B...S....! and scam or not?

The support desk has provided you with an honest answer claiming that the backoffice desk was overloaded at the time and they were trying their best to put your withdrawal request in priority que.

Please have the fairness of following up on the FPA with a confirmation that your withdraw has been received.

Excellent Broker. Very fast excecution, i never had a requote or slippage.
The spreads are low, excluding AudNzd.
The deposit is istantaneous with credit cards and needs 2/3 days with bank transfert. I never paid commission. Same experience for the withdraws.
The bonus are really usefull, because they don't gift money (if you trade a determinate numbers of lot in a determinate numer of months, as the other brokers), but they "only" increase your equity.
My account manager (Silvia Vassileva) is very professional and helped me every times I needed. She always answer quickly to my questions.
For this reasons I think XEMarkets, for now, is an excellet broker and although I have opened a forex account in most of the European forex brokers now i'm using exclusively it.

I have read with interest several complaints about XE Markets. To me most of them seems to originate due to misunderstandings and lack of trading expertise. Do not take this to mean that I have not had any problems with TradingPoint/XEMarkets. I have been trading with them for over a year and yes there were some issues and once they were in the wrong. But these have been sorted out with great speed.
What could be of great help to other traders that experience disturbing discrepancies is to do what I do. As soon as I notice something is out of order I e-mail both the Back Office and my XE Markets/Trading Point Representative, Adam Kyriakou and believe you me action is taken. What I appreciate about Adam is that he will stay in touch with the Back Office and myself until the problem has been dealt with satisfactorily. All I can say is thank you Adam and the Back Office. Keep up the good work.

Firstly I deposited and lost my 2k with 4,5 ot eur/usd
there is not problem. I spoke with Zuzana and she told me that you can receive a bonus again.
Then I deposited 3k and receive 100% bonus. When I have 3 lot eur/usd, they took my bonus out.
Because I had around 1k profit.
There was no problem, when I have loss position. but when I started to make profit, they took bonus out.
And they sent me e-mail in below. But they could not tell me exact reason to cancel bonus. BUT I AM SURE THAT THE MAIN REASON IS MY PROFIT EVENTOUGH MY PROFIT WAS ONLY 1K.

Dear Zhang,

Although your withdrawal has been processed normally it is our obligation to apologize for the inconvenience caused with miscommunication of your account manager and our backoffice desk which has essentially caused your inconvenience and the delay.

Since you requested a withdrawal to a different card from the initial card you used to deposit funds the backoffice desk was required by law to request additional documentation.

Kindly note that based on our records the last withdrawal request you sent was on 18th March and was cancelled from your side. Your account manager has addressed the issue and was providing you her assistance and guiding you on how to request a withdrawal request again since you requested a withdrawal to a different card from the card originally used to deposit.

Regardless of what has happened in the situation you have experienced, we feel fully responsible and concerned with the fact that you felt disappointed. We would like to apologize for any inconvenience that this situation may have caused. We appreciate your feedback and we can assure you that we will do our best to make sure that none of our existing and future clients will ever feel unsatisfied.

Thank you
