I didn't appreciate CMS Forex brokers platform in the market. While it has many bugs and many tools didn't work on VT trader 2 platforms. I've tried to run two H4 charts but my browser hung on the running market. Also, order execution is delay more than two minutes due to the server issue. So VT trader 2 isn't reliable. So I have lost almost $47 and fed-up with the desktop platform and CMS Forex broker's worst trading service. Be careful with MS Forex brokers.

I have been with CMC Markets for almost a year now and they provided me with the best services. They had a platform that runs smoothly, tight spread, and reliable mobile app. I honestly prefer trading with my mobile because I always travel and it is the most convenient for me to use. However, for the past month, the app has not been working well. It was always crashing and the balance reflected on it is sometimes incorrect. They said that they are fixing the issue but it has already been weeks and nothing still happened. If this goes on, I might have to switch to another broker.

I am still wondering and trying to trade so that I can prove that CMC Markets is decent and profitable broker for me. I regist around 2 months ago as trader in this broker and during that time my trading experience is really convenient using their Meta Platform and minimum account size only $100. In a month I earned about 25% from my capital and no bonus. But their spreads are floating from 0.3 pips and the higest I got almost 5 pips spreads. I can't imagine got nothing or lose my money in the next trading. I ask my friend who has trading here before me, he left CMC Markets. What should I do ? Should I leave or continue trading here ?

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
