*Leverage applies to all EU regulated entities of the group. Leverage depends on the financial instrument traded.

Equity Indices CFDs

Stocks can be traded either through exchange or through over-the-counter markets. This way companies are allowed access to capital, while investors - ownership opportunity, or to earn profits from future performance. Equity markets also provide traders with the opportunity to diversify their portfolios.

Clients are allowed a cost-effective and direct access to the global equity markets with no extra fees or commissions.

Precious Metals CFDs

Metals such as Gold and silver are considered by market players to be stores of value in times of economic, political or other uncertainty, as they anticipate that their price is more likely to withstand economic downturns than any other type of assets.

Prices of gold are not dependent on levels of production and consumption, unlike other types of commodities. Gold is an excellent instrument clients may use in order to hedge against other markets in times of economic or political uncertainty. Prices of silver, on the other hand, tend to be more dynamic than prices of other metals, as silver is widely used in a number of industries.

With XM Group clients can trade precious metals with no re-quotes, no extra fees or commissions.

Energies CFDs

Energy products have highly volatile prices, that reflect a mixture of political an environmental factors. The state of global economy is also a key factor, causing influence on demand for these commodities. Weather patterns can affect prices of energy products as well, especially when they lead to production and delivery disruptions of crude oil, natural gas or heating oil, for instance.

Oil is also considered as a safe haven investment, as demand for the commodity could be stable even when equity markets worldwide perform below par. Oil is a 24-hour market providing constant price movement, which lures day traders to take advantage of it with the help of CFDs.

With XM Group clients are free from overnight financing on oil CFDs as well as extra fees or trade commissions.

Islamic accounts

Another distinctive feature adding to XM's already rich arsenal are Islamic accounts, which imply no swap or rollover on overnight positions, which is against the Islamic faith. These accounts bear the following features:
  • No interest/swap charges on overnight positions
  • No spread widening
  • No up-front commissions
  • No re-quotes, no hidden costs
  • Leverage up to 30:1
  • 100% real-time market execution
  • Same trading conditions as for other trading account types
  • Free and instant access to all trading platforms
  • Client Account Manager
Unlike other brokers which substitute additional fees by widening the spread on Islamic accounts, XM Group follows no such policies. The company believes that transferring the interest charge in another form of fee, also known as Swap-fee in disguise, is still a charge that covers the interest and dishonors the beliefs of its Muslim clients. "XM Group is firmly against such practices as it opposes to fair and ethical trading conditions."
