How to Open a Trading Account With XTB

To start trading with this broker, you first need to open an XTB account. In this article, we will guide you through the entire process of how to open a trading account with XTB.

How to open an XTB account 

You can open an XTB account in three major steps: 

  • Complete a simple online form 
  • Upload additional documents to verify your identity 
  • Deposit funds. 

To start your application, visit the XTB website and locate the ‘create account' option. When you click on the option, you will be transferred to a new page where you must enter your email and select your country of residence. Next, you must either agree or reject the option to receive commercial information and declare that XTB can use your personal information to process a trading account. 

XTB has different requirements for various countries. For example, they accept clients from certain countries with another branch called XTB international. If you fall into this category, the system will prompt you to ‘go to XTB international.’ Repeat the process of entering your email address, and select the option to go to the next step. 

After agreeing to the terms and conditions, the next page will prompt you to create your account password. The next page will ask for the following information; 

  • Names according to the information on your ID 
  • Middle names 
  • Surnames 
  • Phone number 
  • Date of birth
  • FATCA declaration that states annual net income, the source of income and earnings, and the annual value of planned investments. 

Next, proceed and enter your full house address. Then, select your preferred currency and language. 

The last step requires you to confirm your understanding of the agreements, including the terms and conditions. Click submit and proceed to your account.
