Is XTB’s trading app any good?

Home > Reviews > XTB > XTB Trading Apps

XTB has some pretty good trading apps. They offer MT4, MT5 and xStation Mobile, for traders to trade on the move. Of those, I would say that XTB’s xStation mobile is very good, especially compared to basic CFD mobile trading apps like eToro.

XTB Trading App Review
XTB

Name: XTB Trading App

Description: XTB’s trading app provides access to about 2,100 markets through CFDs and does provide some added value over the more basic apps from other brokers.
81% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider.

Is XTB's trading app any good?

Yes, specifically, the app highlights your favourite markets, and what is “hot” at the moment so you can see what traders are trading as well as sentiment indicators for those most popular markets. You can filter XTBs client trader sentiment by buyers and sellers, and also by asset class, so you can see where order flow has been going and decided if you want to follow or take a contrarian position.

Charting is nicely layed out, but you cannot trade from the charts on the app (you can on desktop), but the crosshairs feature, does give you a visual of where your orders are relative to support and resistance on the same screen, which is a nice touch.

I did find when trading on the app though there is a good “Discover” section where you can view popular markets such as stocks that have exposure to “inflation protection”, environmental assets, top ETFs that are being traded and also a tab for stocks and markets that are being talked about on Reddit.

You can get access, via the app, to XTBs educational videos, such as their Masterclass, and interviews with people like Jamie Rogozinksi from WallStreetBets.

Overall, the app has some good features and is a good complement to the main trading platform.
