Get Trading Bonus

This is often asked, but many people don’t notice it.
Those who wish to receive the bonus in the trading account setting can receive the account opening bonus, but it is necessary to claim.

After login to the member page, click the displayed bonus request button and enter the verification code sent by email, and the credit will be deposited to your MT4 / MT5 account.
The XM account opening bonus can be used for trading without deposit, so you can trade immediately.
