The relationship started OK but then I started to notice that the spreads were widening at times when my order would drop into profit.

I have had many chats with support and they would not take my issue seriously, they simply shrugged it off as saying spreads are variable and can be increased at any time especially during periods of high volatility in the market (I noticed spread changes during both volatile periods and non-volatile).

This of course gives them option to increase the spread in their favor to close out positions / keep you out of profit. The XM.com platform also freezes when there is volatility giving you zero chance to pull out of a trade / take profit. I also mentioned this issue but as before and rather frustratingly they avoided the questions as best they could. It was like banging my head against a rather large brick wall (neither XM or doing this are not recommended).

Dear Gary, I 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. Please note that it is not uncommon for spreads to widen, not only during volatile market conditions, but also at times of low liquidity. Spread widening related to lack of liquidity during European and US session is a rare occurrence. However, during Asian session liquidity on certain pairs dries out and this especially relates to exotic pairs that are not actively traded during night hours. I kindly ask you to follow up with your MT4 ID to initiate an investigation and transparently present the full data of your claims.

The company has canceled all my profit. I trade manually and open transactions manually on graph. She explains that I used some Internet delays and arbitrage opportunities and did not provide any direct evidence of his words. It turns out that she can cancel any customer's profits under any pretext, without providing evidence.

How can I use some delay in the market execution? When market execution of order by clicking the mouse on the button buy/sell, I only send the order to the current market price. Then liquidity providers executed at the current market price and all Internet delays only worsen the exercise price.

It turns out that the company does not take the deal on the liquidity providers, and is engaged only in imitation of trade. And any profits are paid out of his own pocket. And therefore cancels profit under any pretext.

Dear traders looking for a Serious companies that do not deal with the abolition of profit clients.

I'll ask another question regulator. I wonder how it relates to the behavior of such a policy of the company.

Being in business I know people never take the time to write a good review, but are more willing to write a bad review at the drop of a Hat. I've been trading with XM for about a year with absolutely no problems. Their online customer service is always friendly and willing to help. Deposit and withdrawals I find that they are one of the fastest. I've referred a number of friends and family members to them, and all are happy. I'm also an affiliate, I love it. The best part is that they can issue you an XM Debit Credit Card where you can use anywhere to access funds off your account. Do I sound like a shrill, you are right, I compliment excellence! Well Done XM

I traded with XM for a few months and made a modest profit just shy of £1000.
I received an email telling me in no uncertain terms that I was exploiting their service by using latency trading! I have responded with a formal complaint and received another email repeating their previous accusations and offering no evidence or explanation whatsoever. I have worked really hard at getting my trading knowledge to this point and am disgusted that a broker like this can simply cancel profits on a whim, citing no evidence and expect clients to just walk away! Disgusting. absolutely disgusting. I've submitted a complaint to the OCA in Cyprus.

Dear Kirst1, Following a thorough investigation of your trading account, it has been concluded that the transactions carried out in your account were aimed at exploiting price latency arbitrage opportunities on our Company?s trading platform and at taking advantage of the internet delays which do not reflect the market rates at the time your trades were executed. This was achieved through the use of artificial intelligence software that allowed you take advantage of inefficiencies in pricing. We sent you a request asking to stop using this software but you have failed to comply and continued exhibit the same trading patterns that we consider to be abusive. At this point, we had no other option but to terminate your account. Kind regards, Andrey - Official Representative of XM (Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd.)

I have had an account with XM for a little over a year now. I have been trading for 5 years in total. In all of my years trading, never have I been scammed like with XM.
I opened a trade with 6.0 lots, when the trade was executed, it was 60.0 lots. I dont know how they did this, but it wiped out my account.
The last 3 trades were with 6.0 lots, and before that I used a 5.0 lot. Yet, the very last trade opens for 60.0 and wipes out my account, and no cooperation at all from the company.
All they keep saying is I opened the trade with that amount of lots, and of course I did not think to take a screen shot before executing the trade as this has never happened to me with any broker, and I have traded with over 10 brokers.
What is really disconcerting, is that the company does nothing to check to see if what I am saying is true, they just check their end and pretty much say "No, you are lying", which I am not. This is a bizzare and rare occurence, and before they say lets see how we can fix this, they just say NO. I am disappointed because I thought XM was a decent company with good values, now I completely disagree, because of the way the have handled this situation. Their rebuttal was that last year I used 30.0 and 50.0 lots, which is irrelevant to this year, and most importantly to the last 6 trades I've made.
Its not about me losing the money, as Ive lost money many times and can never blame anyone but myself. But, when mysterious my lot size multiplies by 10, without me doing it, something is wrong. Moreover, when a business refuses to at least investigate, I think, maybe they did this on purpose.
I will not be putting anymore money in this account, I will close this account down now.
I would not recommend XM to anyone, as they dont value their customers, have faulty software, and most importantly the lack of willingness to investigate issues further.

Dear Ashlee, You have left a claim without sharing your full MT4 ID. I will be waiting for your follow up with your MT4 ID and log files containing the trade in question to take action and transparently present the full data of your claims. I would also like to note that execution of orders is completely automated and the change of trade's volume could not have occurred. Each request is executed according to parameters set up by the clients, and unless your initial request to trade contained volume of 60 lots, it was not possible for the volume to be increased from 6 to 60 lots.

Starting trading with xm not too long ago, everything seemed alright Fast executions, good customer support...etc

During high impact news events, prices move pretty quick and spreads widen due to high volatility but it seems to be selective not sure if its xm or just my luck.

So last weeks trading, I did some news trading and during the AUD unemployment release prices drop really fast and having a trade opened I noticed spreads were pretty stable at around 2ish pips during a pretty high volatility news release. Also during the surprise announcement by BOJ which caused yen pairs to drop almost 200 PIPs in just a couple of minutes, spreads were also pretty low at around 4ish for GBP/JPY.

Now I never had a position opened during the drop in yen pairs and during the AUD news I had a pretty small position that wouldn't really cause any considerable losses if price didn't go my way.

I opened a few bad positions on GBP/JPY and had to hedge my loosing positions at the time. All positions were opened during US news release (unemployment claims on thursday). Exactly 5 seconds before the news release spreads widen to exactly 20 pips causing all my positions to close due to stop out.

Have my doubts whether this was intentional as I've dug around and found a few customers complaining about possible stop hunting and widening spreads way above normal during specific selective new releases causing stop outs while hedging. I had few other terminals from other brokers opened using variable spreads and none had a 20 pip spread gap during that news release.

Talking to support didn't help and magically the chat was disconnected. They told me your account manager would give you a call, i requested the call to be made at a specific time but they called a minute later and there was no way I could answer the call as I wasn't free to do so.

I can't prove anything simply providing my experience and wasn't pleased.

Won't be trading with xm anymore. Disappointed that's that for sure.

Dear Moe, At XM we make every effort to keep spreads as low as possible thanks to our partnerships with multiple liquidity providers. However, it is common for the spreads to get wider during new releases that have high impact on the market. XM's spreads depend on prices received from our liquidity providers. Uncertainty and sudden market fluctuations are the main factors that cause liquidity providers to widen spreads during the news. Spreads get back to their average values within less than a minute after the news releases. Kind regards, Andrey - Official Representative of XM (Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd.)

Advantages :Customer service is very good, withdrawal to credit card and skrill is so fast.

Disadvantages : trading is poor, not recommended for scalpers, price moves and P/L is zero !!!!!!

Dear Moataz, If you have a MICRO account (contract size is 1000), and you opened 0.01 lots, you will need to wait for a significant change in price in order to see change in profit or loss. EXAMPLE: Trade size = 0.01 microlots on EURUSD. Opening price =1.29887, closing price=1.29906 The calculation would be as follows: (1.29906-1.29887)*1000*0.01= 0.0019 USD As you can see, 0.0019 USD is too small a profit to be visible on your platform, as the profit shows 2 decimals.

On 17/12/2013 I opened a real account with XM. The initial deposit I made was worth EUR 4,000.00. There were no complications with communication with XM as long as I was loosing money. Therefore when I achieved sufficient return and decided to withdraw the funds equal EUR 24,116.00 the complications occurred. I received an email informing me that XM did pay out a deposit, just instead of EUR 24,116.00 they paid out EUR 4,000.00, the equivalence of my initial deposit. XM simply canceled my profits! When I contacted XM they claimed my trading history was suspicious. They accused me of using arbitrage on the credit bonuses they offer and immediately suspended my accounts. XM’s explanation was simply copy pasting sections from their Terms and Conditions. After this email the contact with XM became a nightmare. They never gave me any details. And I never agreed with their prosecution. I tried to clarify this inconvenience but they do not want to hear me out they just stick to their version of events. I contacted them on many fields many times. Sometimes I had to resend my email few times to obtain a respond. At first I was directly contacting XM, then my lawyer contacted them first unofficially and the last time, mid of September, my lawyer contacted them in a official way. They did not respond. I am very surprised and disappointed with the manner the company treats its clients. I feel deeply betrayed and scammed by XM. As you can see I try to recover my funds for more than half a year and I still did not achieve it. On 03/12/2014 I opened a threat in Scam Alerts Folder. I informed XM about it on their Live Chat. The contact person ensured me they will respond to my threat. Nothing happened since.

Please note I have all the data to prove my point.

Dear Marta, Upon investigation of your trading history there were a couple of red flags which we have identified which also triggered the concern from our Anti Fraud department which consequently resulted in termination of your account. The first point was that your registered address with us is in the UK and we saw that the IP accessing your account was from Poland and the same IP was also used in other accounts. The second point was that which has already been mentioned to you in private correspondence, regarding the type of trading taking place in your account, which raised suspicions of the company that there was an intention to exploit our trading facility. I would like to assure you that it is not our wish to trouble our clients and further confirm that we always abide by the Client - Company agreement with which you accepted before starting to trade with us.

Dear XM, I have a question: does XM guarantee negative balance protection in all circumstances?
Thank you in advance!
Reply by Chris Zacharia submitted Feb 16, 2015:
Dear moncsi, XM is offering negative balance protection. The maximum risk of loss depends on the amount deposited in your trading account, which means that you cannot lose more money than you deposited.

On January 8th I received the below email from XM.com. I consider XM.com to be acting illegally by removing profits legally earned by news trading. I use a sophisticated news feed and trigger system to trade. They claim I am using arbitrage but when asked to provide proof my trades are arbitrage they produce no evidence. it's plain to see looking at my trades that they are all from news events where good deviations occurred.

I have a bad experience with XM. I opened a demo account and was using it to learn and understand forex trading and received an email from XM offering a $30 no deposit bonus. I opened the real account as the offer was tempting for me. I checked the email and there was no hidden condition on the same. After opening the account I didn't get the bonus hence I sent an email and I got the response that the bonus as not available in my region. I asked, if the offer is not available in my region then why did you sent me the email and misguided me but there was no explanation and they are saying that I will get a 100% bonus on my first deposit. There is nothing to trust XM after this. when after sending one offer they are not honouring the same then there is no guaranty of getting any fair play with them.

Dear Sharad, Indeed XM is offering a $30 free bonus with no deposit required in some regions of the world and offering other exclusive promotions for clients from other regions of the world. Each region receives different promotions. It may be the case that you have received the $30 free bonus in mistake and we do sincerely apologize for this as it its unfortunately currently not available for clients from India. We apologize for any inconvenience might be cause by receiving this invitation in mistake. However India does have an exclusive promotion this period which you can view by visiting the promotions section of the XM website. Once again we apologize for any inconvenience caused and any mistrust in XM it may have created. Thank you,

XM is the best broker I've ever traded with. My personal account manager Adam Kyriacou is the best there is. He calls all my clients I refer to XM within minutes of opening an account to help them get started. 10/10 for Adam and XM.

I have been very satisfied with the service XM.com provides. One of the plus points is their MT4 trading platform work with MAC and I wasn't forced to run the platform on a Windows machine.

They also provided me with an investment bonus which some of the other brokers do not do, and of they do it is usually far less than what XM offers.

Very importantly, the staff are helpful and friendly. My account manager at XM is Adam Kyriacou and if you are considering XM then ask for Adam to assist you. His knowledge of the services XM offers is outstanding and he is a friendly professional person to do business with. Adam gives me regular phone calls to find out of I'm still happy and if there is something he can do to assist should I have any queries or problems. What I also appreciate about Adam is that he communicates on many mediums such as Skype and Facebook which is handy when you can't phone or don't have the time to chat on the phone. If Adam left to go work at another broker I would probably want to move my account with him.

I asked Adam if XM.com will be offering managed accounts and he said it is something that he and XM are investigating which is another plus point.

Lastly, XM is trustworthy and your money is safe. You won't struggle to get your profits or money back from them.

I've been using XM for almost a year now. I've never had an issue with trades, or settlements. Deposits and withdrawals are quick and efficient. Large withdrawals happen with no issues and I've made several. My account manager, Adam Kyriacou, absolutely rocks. He even helped me navigate the "US citizen with an offshore business presence" so I could trade with them. Your account rep is the face of the company and Adam places XM in a very good light. Adam is detail oriented and tracks every incoming and outgoing deposit and withdrawal to make sure it happens promptly. He's my "goto" guy if I have any issues and they are all resolved quickly. No other broker has ever called me and gotten to know me, my business, and my needs. XM is THE premier broker, in my opinion.

Hello, i am new with XM. Just trading for a week now, And i must say that my rigistration was very fast. After registering you can easyly deposit an ammount on your account of the mt4, it is directly on your account if you make your deposit with skrill or your creditcard. After this you can just start trading, but first you need to upload your documents of your id and proof of adress. Then it needed to be valided by XM. Just went to the chat service and talked with Vincent in Dutch. He was very kindly and helpfull and valided my account so i could start trading. In 1 week i made 500$ profit and have withdrawal all the ammount and left just 100$. In no time i got my withdrawal on my skrill. It was just in 2 hours totally that i have waited. This became also that the Dutch service of there chat Vincent helped me during the process of withdrawal how it has to be. After all, it is a good broker and i have not had any problem with freezing, or stop hunting what ever. You just have to make a plan and take the gain with forex. Just read there terms and conditions, and u would not have any problems at all. Best Regards, Handos from the Netherlands
