Comprehensive review

Axi is an online forex brokerage that was founded in Sydney, Australia back in 2007, and now has regulated entities in Australia, the UK, and Dubai, in addition to an unregulated entity in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, with each entity serving traders in their respective regions. It is one of the largest Australian forex brokers operating today. The company has in recent years rebranded itself from AxiTrader, to now being known as just Axi.

Axir offers flexible trading conditions and high leverage for most traders, but Australia, UK and EU-based users will be limited to a trading leverage of just 1:30 due to regulations in place in those jurisdictions. For users based in other parts of the world, however, trading leverage with Axi can go as high as 1:500.

Traders can enjoy access to a large number of currency pairs, as well as CFDs based on underlying assets such as exotic commodities like coffee, cocoa, and soybeans, as well as the precious metals gold, silver, and platinum. In addition, the broker offers access to CFDs based on the popular cryptocurrencies Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple, all of which are tradeable during normal forex market trading hours.

As its trading platform, Axi has chosen to focus on the popular MetaTrader 4 (MT4), in addition to an API solution for traders who want to connect via other platforms. As the most popular retail forex trading platform in history, MT4 has demonstrated its success over the years as a favorite trading tool among brokers and traders alike. Among other things, MT4 stands out from other platforms with its amazingly large library of trading algorithms called “Expert Advisors” within the platform.

As usual, MT4 is available in versions for PC, Mac, Web, as well as Apple and Android mobile devices.

In addition to providing access to the thousands of forex trading strategies that are available within the MT4 ecosystem, MT4 and Axi also allows their traders to develop their own trading strategies to share with others. Successful strategy developers have proved that this is a great alternative way to make money from trading, as it represents an opportunity to make more consistent profits from selling a strategy than what would be possible from just trading the market on their own.

In terms of account types, Axi offers a Standard Account and a Pro Account. Both account types offer the same selection of trading instruments and leverage, but the Pro option is a commission-based account with a $7 round-trip commission on trades, and much tighter spreads starting from just 0.0 pips. The Standard Account, on the other hand, has no commissions, but has spreads starting from 0.4 pips.

There is no minimum deposit amount required to set up a trading account with Axi.

Deposits and withdrawals are generally carried out in a hassle-free way with Axi, and there are a variety of payment methods available to take care of this. Among them is of course bank transfer and major payment cards, but also e-wallet services like Skrill and Neteller. Keep in mind, however, that the available payment methods differ depending on which currency you choose as your trading account’s base currency.

Lastly, we also appreciate that Axi has managed to keep its customer support open 24 hours a day on trading days, although this is really something we should expect from all forex brokers. In addition to localized phone support in 11 countries, users can reach the broker via live chat on its website or through email.
