Few days I was trading with CMS Forex broker and can't run it continue. as I am a job holder in a bank and I have few time to trade Desktop platform. So now I am preferring to trade mobile platform or web based platform. But they didn't have this kind of platform. While the CMSFX VT Trader tools are good in the VT trader 2 desktop platform. But I think VT trader 2 isn't so reliable too, because most of the times my order executed 50 sec delay. Even In the last NFP I can't close my position due to the market volatility. So I have lost almost $75 in several trading. Really I am fed-up with the desktop platform and CMS Forex broker's worst trading service. So be careful with them.

My trading experience with CMC is a nightmare. Last Friday they push their price at 45 pips to hunt my stop loss where other market providers price are still lower than that by that same amount. They usually do this over the weekend opening price. Apart from this they took too much time to process my withdrawal request. My last withdrawal was $300 through wire transfer and they took 16 days to processed it. Definitely don't trust them with my money.

At the first time, there are many traders who have believed and comfortable with a broker who set only $100 minimum account size, very small. So do I, I'm comfortable with CMC Markets since I open my trading account because their minimum account size and spreads are small. But their trading performance wasting my time and also my money because the trading systems are weak. When I got trouble in my trading process, I call the customer support, but they did not provide satisfactory service and just give me a promise to fixed the trouble. After 3 working days, unfortunately there is no improvement of their systems. Its really disappointing, and I think to find another broker.

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.
