Founded in 2007 in Sydney, AxiTrader launched its London brand in 2012, and its China operations in 2015, before reaching $100 billion in monthly client trading volume – which coincided with its expansion into the Middle East, Germany, and Latin America in 2016.
AxiCorp offers two account types – Standard & ECN, both accessible through the popular MetaTrader 4 platform. The ECN account, called MT4 Pro, offers lower spreads (the difference being around 1 pip), but involves a commission of $3.50 per standard lot per side, and requires a higher minimum initial deposit.
Micro lots are available for trade on both account types for those unwilling trade in large volumes.
