Platform innovation and design
Our web-based CFD and share trading platforms give you access to the financial markets from anywhere in the world. You don’t have to download and install software on your computer or worry about firewall issues. Innovation is at the heart of CMC Markets’ approach to everything we do, and technology enables innovation.
Our CFD trading platform, CMC Next Generation, has been built using powerful Adobe Flex® technology, so we can provide you with enhanced access and a rich interactive trading experience. We have created a new generation of trading platform that is feature rich, yet simple to use. CMC Next Generation looks different and feels different. Not only have we invested in the user interface, we’ve also invested heavily in the hardware and infrastructure that supports our global trading platforms. Our backend systems can handle over one million prices per second, so you can be confident that even during the most turbulent market sessions our platform will continue to deliver the service you expect.
Our streamlined web-based share trading platform is designed as the most efficient way to trade with us. It’s the technology that gives you straight-through processing, to get your order to the market typically less than one second after it’s received by our website. This lets you take advantage of trading opportunities as soon as you identify them. Investment Trends 2010 First Half Online Broking Report showed that our clients gave us the highest average ratings in the industry on website functionality, ease of use, platform reliability, telephone customer service, and our research and charting.
