Innovative, intuitive and fully customisable: xStation is a trading platform that adapts to your way of investing.

Ticket order: to execute an order instantly or to define the settings of a pending order. It displays the usual information to open a trade and the characteristics of the product (volume, contract value, margin, stop-loss, take profit, spread, commission, pip value, daily swap.




In short, xStation 5 is a versatile and user-friendly trading platform for both retail traders and professionals.

Traders can easily navigate between different trading panels and tools, which makes its functions and user experience quite comfortable.

However, one of the main flaws of the platform is the lack of automated trading tools and backtesting of trading strategies, which means it's not the best choice for algorithmic traders. However, for automated trading, XTB offers the MetaTrader 4 platform.

Generally speaking, the user experience is quite positive, as it meets one of the characteristics that any trading platform should have: being easy to use and facilitating traders' access to the markets.

Therefore, if you haven't used the xStation 5 platform, we recommend that you give it a try and see how your using experience goes. Compared to MT4 and MT5, we find this app to be superior in several ways except for automated trading.
