About the company:

XTB or X-Trade Brokers is a leading forex broker in Central and Eastern Europe. It offers more than 1,500 instruments for online trading, including forex, indices, stocks, commodities and ETFs on two trading platforms, in-house xStation and the popular MetaTrader 4 platform. It has offices in more than 15 EU countries, South America and Asia.

XTB Ltd., operating under XTB trading name, is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Its other subsidiaries are supervised by the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (KNF).

Being a UK-based broker, XTB is obliged to stick to strict rules and regulations.

Thus, to acquire a license from the UK financial watchdog, brokers must hold at least €730 000 in order to prove their good financial standing.

FCA-regulated brokers guarantee that the customers’ funds are risk-secured as they are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) with the compensation limit set at £50,000.

Moreover, XTB Dom Maklerski went public by debuting on the Warsaw Stock Exchange in March 2016 (WSE: XTB). A year later, the estimated market value of XTB fell below $200 million. That was due to the new rules of the Polish regulator setting the highest leverage of up to 1:25.

Trading conditions

The company offers Basic, Standard and Pro account types. The Basic account is aimed at newcomers and traders who prefer fixed spreads, while Standards and Pro accounts are geared toward professional traders, offering STP-execution.

Traders can trade a wide range of assets, including 50 majors, minors and exotics, more than 20 Asian, US and European stock indices, over 20 precious and base metals, energy and agricultural goods, 200 American, UK, Czech, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish stocks, as well as a wide range of ETFs.

Minimum initial deposit

XTB’s initial deposit requirement is $250.

Average spreads & commissions

The broker offers both fixed and variable spreads. Fixed spreads are available for Basic account and total 2 pips on EUR/USD, which is the average in the industry. Variable spreads for Pro account average 0.3 pips on EUR/USD, but also involve commission of 2.5 GBP/3.5 EUR/4 USD/1,400 HUF per lot (per side). Basic and Standard accounts charge no commission.


The highest possible leverage ratio depends on the asset type:

  • forex: up to 1:200;
  • indices: up to 1:133;
  • commodities: up to 1:66;
  • stocks and ETFs: up to 1:10.

In general, the maximum leverage of 1: 200 is the average in the market, but some traders may want to trade with greater leverage. In our ranking you can find brokers offering leverage of up to 1:1,000.

Trading platforms

XTB customers are offered a choice of two trading platforms: in-house xStation and MetaTrader 4, available in desktop, web, or mobile versions.

XStation is a user-friendly, fully customizable platform with in-built calculator (instantly determining potential profits or losses, thus allowing a trader to make sound trading decisions). Traders are likely to appreciate two more features of the platform: one-click trading and the option to directly trade from charts.

In addition, XTB offers the most widely used MetaTrader 4 platform. It allows users to fully automate their trades using expert advisors (EAs). This is one of the reasons why most traders choose this platform. Moreover, it offers a wide range of technical indicators, extensive back-testing environment and advanced charting package.

A system of discounts is available for active traders. At the end of each month, a special system automatically calculates the amount of cash back. Traders can earn up to 1.1% of their balance a month, depending on the volume of their trades.

Invite a friend and you will have the opportunity to receive a bonus after your friend opens an account and meets the minimum trading requirements.

I've been trading with xtb for a while and I've never seen such slow execution, it take between 3-5 minutes to close your position.

I have been trading with XTB for a few months, and so far I have nothing to complain about XTB broker because their services are reliable. Perfect and easy-to-use platform. Perfect live support instant within the platform. The tech support with this company is the best in my opinion. I can say that XTB is also recommended for beginners because they give the best services. I would recommend XTB to anyone who wants a professional broker with no hassle.

I had an account at XTB broker. My experience isn’t good, As their execution service is slow and their spread doesn’t for scalper. Always my position going slippage, also I have observed that their price quote is fake, as showing a different rate from the real market. XTB broker has no regulation in the market. So I think investing is risky with this broker, although I had a $100 investment with them. Now I have decided to withdraw my money.

Trading with XTB broker is a pleasure. Every trading me brings me to profit more than 30%, thanks to XTB because of them I can recover my losses. They have the fastest order executions ever, I can place my order on my desired positions and no delay at all. Even the platform is working stable during volatility market. When I get into trouble while trading like an error, the support team could help me to fix it immediately. I used to withdraw my profit via wire transfer, it's always successful fastly and low cost. XTB is a reliable broker, and I would like to recommend them to all traders.

My experience with XTB over the past two months has been very painful. I get slipped 50% of my trades. On last Wednesday they shut the live trading server down for 45 minutes while the market was still open, at the same time as US Reatils sales report. The US Reatils sales report is a very big event in the markets and I was unable to close my trade because their server problem and I lost $143. I made an objection but they refuse to refund it .

I started an account at XTB two months ago and I invested $250 which is their minimum requirement. So far, my trading activities are going well. Of course, I am still making some beginner's mistakes but in terms of the smoothness of transactions, I have nothing to complain. I believe that I already found the right broker for me.
