I made a deposit of € 10 and withdrew immediately afterwards to verify that it worked and I had no problem, a few days later I tried to make another larger deposit and it did not leave me, I contacted the team and they did not tell me . After talking to the bank and after a long period of observation, they did not know exactly what was happening, and they told me that most likely the bank system was blocking me because I detected fraudulent evidence of xm.

Dear cudado,

I kindly ask you to share your account number so I could investigate your claims and make sure you are able to fund your trading account whenever you wish to.

At the moment I can advise you use alternative payment methods that XM is offering in order to fund your account and/or withdraw funds.

Dear forextreader2020,

You have violated the rules that you accepted when opening account with XM and, therefore, your account got terminated and may no longer trade with XM.

Please note that the money you have deposited with XM will be returned to you in full as your withdrawal request is completed.

On my account 2722101 I made a deposit of 5 USD and then profit of 25.58 usd and after trading with a friend of mine on hotspot everything was fine because there wasn't no internet connection I made a withdrawal of a total 30.58 it wasn't processed and all my profits were taken from me and this is the first I've heard of a broker taking clients profits and saying its because of fraudulent activities

Dear Puleng,

I believe that you are well aware that performing opposite trades with a sole purpose of gaining unfair advantage is strictly prohibited by XM. In other, words you were trying to abuse companies favorable trading conditions and gain unfair profit.

The above is the sole purpose why your account got blocked and will remain blocked indeterminately.

I requested for withdrawal after making profits from the no deposit bonus now it is 26 hours. My withdrawal is still pending and I am being told to wait for a call for verifications if I am not mistaken. I am asking myself why they say withdrawals will be processed within 24 hours than they cannot live to their promise of terms and conditions

Dear moea lebohang,

On rare occasions withdrawals of funds from No Deposit Bonus accounts require additional verification in for us to verify client's identity. Therefore, I kindly ask you to speak with your Personal Account Manager via phone and when it has been done, I can assure that your withdrawal request will be processed in no time.

Kind regards,

Dear SadunKumara,

It is not possible to have your profit cancelled when you are trading with XM. You have not shared your account number but the only reason for this kind of a situation to happen is that you have seriously violated XM's Trading Conditions by gaining profit unfairly.

In order for me to provide more details and explain the situation better, I kindly ask you to share your account details.

Kind regards,

Leverage reduced straight after i made a good trade

Hi Guys

XM Account number -2738249

I had no other alternative but to come here as XM is not communicating to me regarding my account

So after i successfully made a good trade on the AUD - Employment Change , i have made decent profits and right after i traded this news released i got a email saying that they reduced my leverage which i did not agree on and they did this because they saw i was making money . They reduced my leverage to 1:100 which is useless to me and i have been on multi XM chats and i feel like they are just ignoring me. After i questioned it, there since as been no emails/No communication send to me regarding this matter only the same stupid email saying that they reduced my leverage.

I have came to a point where i requested to withdraw all of my money and use another broker ! this broker is not recommended in my view and i used to love working with them but after this i am done .

I would love to hear the story that XM will come up after this i am waiting .

Dear Gada Cane,

I am sorry to hear that you are thinking to stop trading with XM.

I would like to stress out that if you wish to continue trading with XM, you are more than welcome to do so and to enjoy all benefits that XM is offering. However, at the moment the maximum leverage we can offer you is 1:100. It has been restricted to 1:100 because of our risk management procedures but this decision may be reviewed in the future.
