AxiTrader — Forex Broker Review 2021

AxiTrader is a recognised and respected online FX and CFD broker offering high quality trading service and technology to retail and institutional traders worldwide.


AxiTrader launched in Sydney, Australia in 2007 as the flagship brand within the AxiCorp group of companies. From a two person startup it has grown to become a well-regarded name in the industry, with nine offices worldwide servicing tens of thousands of clients in more than 150 countries.

Other AxiCorp brands include AxiSelect, a funding and development program, AxiPrime, for institutional grade traders, and AxiForex, a specialist offshoot for international money transfers.

Trading costs

Referring to real-time price comparisons as a guide, AxiTrader consistently presents as one of the lowest and best value brokers in the market, with spreads as low as 0.0 pips. Daily trading costs are equally minimal with no funding fees, no deposit/withdrawal fees and no minimum deposits required.

Account types

AxiTrader offers two main types of online trading account: Standard and Pro. In broad terms both accounts share the same features, with the key difference being the Standard account charging no commission for trades. Conversely, the Pro account has a small charge for each round-trip trade in return for a preferential spread. The choice of account will be determined by an individual trader’s requirements.

Traders also have access to a Demo account which is a replica of a live trading account. Due to it using virtual funds, the Demo account can be considered a risk-free training account.
