XTB's xStation 5 review

XTB's xStation 5 platform is user-friendly, customizable and has a good search function. On the other hand, two-step login is not available.

At XTB , you can use xStation 5, XTB's own trading platform. This platform is available both on web and desktop (you can download it).

xStation 5 is available in many languages: 

XTB  web trading platform languages
Arabic Armenian Bulgarian Chinese Czech
English French German Hungarian Italian
Japanese Korean Polish Portuguese Romanian
Russian Slovenian Spanish Swedish Thai
Turkish Vietnamese      

Look and feel

At first glance, xStation 5 might appear like a platform designed for professional users, but as you start to use it, you will find it well-designed and user-friendly, even if you are a beginner.

You can easily customize the web trading platform.

Login and security

Only one-step login is available. Two-step login would be more secure.

Search functions

XTB's search function is great. There are different ways you can search for an asset by clicking ‘Market Watch':

  • Type the name of the product in the search bar.

  • Browse by various categories and product types. For example, if you want to trade a US stock CFD, just click on the stock type and select the US.

Placing orders

You can use the following order types:

  • Market
  • Limit / Stop
  • Stop-loss / Take profit
  • Trailing stop 

If you are not familiar with the basic order types, read this overview.

There is also one order time limit you can use: Good 'til Time (GTT).

A useful feature of the platform is the trader calculator, which helps you calculate the margin, the commission and other important parameters for each trade.

Alerts and notifications

We liked the ease of setting alerts and notifications. You can set up email, SMS and push notifications for important events such as margin calls, deposits and withdrawals, your closed/open positions and other features.

Portfolio and fee reports

The platform has clear portfolio and fee reports, including the profit/loss of each of your positions. You can find them under the 'History' tab. Daily email reports are also available.
