At XM, there are two accounts to choose from. For beginners who want a relatively lower risk level when generating profits, a Micro trading account is suggested. On the other hand, a Standard account is preferred by those professional and more experienced traders with a more know-how on the aspect of financial markets.
Both Micro account and the Standard account has the same leverage of 1:1 to 1:888. Also, both accounts require a minimum deposit of $5, an extra 1 pip for the entire major pairs and a maximum open or pending order of 200 positions. However, their only difference is the contract size as the Micro account has 1,000 and the Standard account has 100,000.
Eligibility to request a free VPS from the Members Area is given to clients who are able to maintain a minimum amount of US$ 5,000 or other equivalent currency rates on the Equity-Credit option.

In addition to this, free demo accounts can be opened also any of the trading accounts which has an access to the trading platform of MetaTrader4. Traders can use this as long as they want but ensure it won’t be inactive for more than 120 days from its log-in, hence it will be closed. Anyway, you can always get a new one as needed at any time.
