As XM does not charge any for deposit/withdrawal nor currency exchanges, it could be a better choice for you to choose another currency for your trading account.
And average commissions for exchanging currencies with banks are around 1% – 3%.
With XM, you can also open several trading accounts with different base currencies.
With this condition, you can diversify your portfolio and manage risks using different currencies to hold your accounts.
