XMTrading: Is there an age limit for opening an account? From what age? Are high school students and students not allowed to trade? Use by minors and the elderly


To trade FX on XM, you need to open an account. This article explains whether minors (under 18 years of age) can use the service. Recently, the number of underage and student traders who earn millions of yen per month has increased significantly. It seems that there are many people who have been studying FX and stocks since they were still in high school. The barrier here is the age restriction of FX brokers, and there are risks with any investment, so high school students who are minors are basically unable to use FX brokers. XM is no exception to this.

Is there an age limit for XMTrading?

In conclusion, you cannot trade on XM unless you are over 18 years old. Some overseas Forex companies require customers to be over 20 years old. There is no upper limit, but the age restrictions are summarized below. Registration is possible and recommended even if you are over 80 years old. If you have any questions regarding age, please contact the official website’s operational support. Many people use XM. Frequently asked questions are also posted on the management website.

parental consent form

XM Trading is open to anyone over the age of 18 and does not require parental consent. If you are 18 years old, you can open an account by yourself without parental consent.

Conditions and procedures are the same for minors and students

Account opening conditions and procedures are the same for minors and students. Basically, you can open an account after entering your personal information and completing your identity verification.

When verifying your identity, you need to submit “identity verification documents” and “address verification documents”, so if you do not have them, you need to ask your parents to prepare them.

Education is irrelevant

XM’s identity verification is subject to review, but education background and total income are irrelevant. Please be assured that even students with no annual income or assets will basically not be screened.

Precautions when using by minors/students

We will explain the basic precautions when used by minors and students. Be sure to check the age of the person when you open an account. If you make a false declaration, you may be investigated and there will be penalties.

Using XM under someone else’s name is against the rules

If you are still under the age of 18, it is possible to open an account in the name of a parent or other person, and do the transaction yourself, but it is a violation of the terms of use, so please refrain from doing so.

If you find out, you will receive treatment such as profit cancellation and account freeze.
