Australian and overseas companies
Trade the world from one account.
One of the great advantages of CFD trading is the access it gives you to both Australian and global financial markets through a single account. In Australia, it means you can not only trade Australia-based companies including BHP, AMP and Rio Tinto, you can also extend your reach to global companies like Google and Barclays. You can trade equity markets in Europe, North America, and Asia. You can also trade forex, indices and commodities.
No minimum trade sizes with fractional trading
The CMC Next Generation platform allows us to offer you the unique ability to trade company CFDs at a fraction of any amount. This effectively means there is no minimum trade size when trading company CFDs with us.
With CMC Markets you can take out 0.01 of a share (called a unit).
Automatic balance conversions, millisecond execution and 100% automation
Trading company CFDs on the CMC Next Generation platform means all your positions and trades are automatically converted into your local currency using our current FX spot rates. When dealing with instruments that are traded in other currencies, you do not need to calculate this back into AUD. You know your financial position instantly.
We also offer 100% automation of all our trades, meaning no dealer intervention. You wanted fast execution, so we also give you millisecond trading, which means you can get in and out of the market quickly.
Treatment of dividends and corporate actions
When you trade company CFDs you are still able to benefit from dividends when they are paid on the ex-date.
If you have bought (gone long) you will be paid an additional credit equal to the dividend yield relative to the size of your position. If you are short (you have sold) a share or index when dividends are due, then you will incur a debit from your account, equal to the dividend yield relative to the size of your position.
