When I started to trade with CMC Markets, all seemed to be right. I used my own strategies and trading systems and I made good money during the first weeks and execution of trades was really quick, but then this was replaced with constant requotes, freezing of the platform or delay in the execution of orders (up to 40 seconds). Also, deposits I made didn’t appear in my trading account and when I asked for help to support department, they simply washed their hands. That’s why I agree to all negative reviews here.

I have a live account with CMC Markets round about a 08 months before I had a demo account, so far, I have made three deposits via Wire Transfer, and it processed on time with no hidden commissions, spreads starts kind of low, for EUR/USD for example, it starts from 0.7 and it can get to 2.0, but be careful that sometimes depending on the market volatility it can get till 3.0 pips. Their order execution is quite good, and stop loss is very accurate rarely fails. Too bad we have to maintain a minimum balance in the trading account, otherwise it can be blocked.

Their educational material is trully impressive I had the opportunity to use as part of my learning process, also they have a great variety of assets to trade with, but for beginners like me, is kind of confusing because we have to limit our choices not to have many losses. Their website have a confusing layout, is not that easy to navigate, but could see their spreads are quite good because starts form 0,70 for EUR/USD. Fair broker.

I have no problem with Cmc Markets, this broker has the best software, excellent execution, and great support. so far all trades and transactions went smoothly. Indeed, there are some things that need to be improved, but overall still comfortable with their services

In CMC Market broker, I have been lost my invest due to unlimited platform's problems in a corporate account. can you imagine it? But it happened with me. I got freeze when I want to open and close my order, my all orders go some slippage for their slow pricing, sometimes my profitable trades going in opposite direction being closed out below my TP point. That's why I have investigated to them with others brokers. Finally, I have found out their chart's quote is slow and different from current market and they charged a high spread of 0.7pips & commission of £9. So still I never made a profit yet, moreover, I have been lost my initial investment of $100. So on June, I have stopped dealing with CMC Market broker. I hoped you will never fall in the same problem. So beware right now from CMC Market.

I am currently trading with this broker but still I consider myself as newbie. For 7 months everything was great. I started with $300 and i have developed a couple of 1-2 day trades that are setups and get triggered by stop orders. I use EA and i stay profitable. I have never seen spikes but instead they were tight spreads. I usually trades betwen 7pm in central time London, Now I earn 30% every month using EURUSD - 2pip (Ancient Average spread). . I would recommend CMC to anyone getting started and looking for a legitimate broker

I have trading with CMC at beginning it was good but now it very awful. Their execution of order is very bad 5-8 times requote when you try to execute. Another horrible thing is that their withdrawal system. My last withdrawal takes 23 days because of their technical problem they unable to send OPT for SMS confirmation on my mobile. I heard that same problem were happened with some other trades. And this problem did not resolved yet. Unless they have solved this, I would prefer to stay away funding.

trading with cmc only good for 3 month only. After the fourth month trading all the good things become the bad things which is my deposit and withdrawal late to process more than 1 day and usually it only take around 3 hours only. Their trading platform also become so slow in execution and sometimes freeze and when I want to exit the platform it will not responding and I’ve to force close then re-open again. Their support also are not helpful and friend like the first time I register real account with them. So at that point I decided to close my account with them and decided to find another broker that can give me a good service.

I noticed unusual things happening such as screen freeze, prices going in opposite direction and heading towards my stops, prices shooting back up, trades being closed and a lot! I was offered 250 USD bonus just to open an account with them and everything I stated here was actually happened to my account. So at that point I decided to close my account with them and decided to not return again

I opened a CFD account with this broker because it is old on the market and I had trust that it will not disappear over the night with my money. After the validation I deposited with Webmoney 1000$ and was instant credited to my account. I started to trade after I read the commissions applied by the broker, which are very transparent shown in the official website. My trades are involving currency EUR/USD, USD/GBP, USD/JPY, USD/CHF, GBP/EUR, CFD's and shares. Profit came easy in first 2 weeks of trading made 2000 $ profit and withdraw was easy with WebMoney. I now have more then 3000$ in my account available to trade, which I use to make as much as possible when I see strong signal and not that crazy market. Platform works fine, without re-quotes, without crazy spreads and it's not crashing. I recommend the broker CMC Markets because it's honest and hasn't hidden commissions.
