Why experienced traders use CMC Markets
With over 22 years’ of experience, we have a lot to offer. We have focused our technology teams to deliver the fastest deal execution available, and truly innovative trading platform features. Here are a few more reasons why active traders like to use our platform.
We now offer spreads from as low as 0.7 pts on major FX pairs, such as the EUR/USD, and from 0.5 pts on major indices, such as the US SPX 500.
Premium client service as standard
We promise to ensure that our global support team is available when the markets are open and that each member of our client management team is highly trained and goes through our Academy Program for Service Excellence. We specialise in dealing with high value, active traders who demand a more sophisticated level of service. You can expect this level of service each and every time you contact us. Read more.
100% automated execution
We offer immediate and reliable execution without delay or dealer intervention. That means you won’t experience order rejections during fast moving markets.
Precision pricing and execution
Precision pricing offers a higher level of pricing accuracy - in some cases our spread bet prices are as precise as 1,000th of a point. You get a higher level of execution through pricing accuracy.
Have your spread bets automatically execute at the next available price, or set specific boundary levels to “fill or kill” your trade. Order rejections during fast moving markets can be frustrating. With the CMC Markets platform you have complete control over how your market and stop entry orders are executed.

Pattern Recognition Scanner
Developed in-house by our award winning product development team, this system scans over 120 of our most popular products and alerts you to potential technical trading opportunities across multiple time intervals. Using patterns such as triangles, wedges and channels, coupled with our bespoke star rating system, (the greater the number of stars the greater the number of technical indicators aligned to the direction of the pattern), the pattern scanner updates every 15 minutes to highlight potential technical trade set-ups. We are so confident in our technology that we have included a back-testing function to rate the effectiveness of a specific pattern across a specific interval on every product the system scans.
