Customer service is really poor

Using the CMC trading platform is fine – its functionality is great.

However, be warned that CMC’s customer interface is poor. During the recent market meltdown I found that after many years of using CMC that my account was blocked. No communication that this was about to happen or had happened.

Emails asking for an explanation remain unanswered. Multiple failed calls where after an hour on hold I ran out of patience. Some 2 weeks later in a early morning call I got through to be told that there was a disrepancy between the file records and . Read more

ASIC. On detailed examination there wasn’t but it required a complete round of verification before the freeze was lifted. The time taken for that freeze to be lifted was just short of a month. So for 6 weeks the account was blocked. The complete lack of understanding of the issues, the «take it or leave it approach» and the lack of professional was exceptional. Having had this «no communication» no service approach I am in the throws of moving my business. The CMC platform might be good but that counts for little if the customer service is poor.

little interest in customer service

I was a customer of this firm. Recently I was interested in buying shares. I messaged CMC to ask about procedures for buying shares. For some reason (after 2 requests) it could not do this and instead emailed me to say that I would need to phone to speak to someone at CMC to get the help I needed. I made at least five attempts to call but could never get through. Then I emailed CMC again to complain about this. It then had a staff member phone me but I explained to the guy that I could not speak at that time. He said he would call me back later that day.
I was never called back. Poor customer focus!!

I started trading with CMC with much optimism but after a two week period, my success rate was so low that I started to question the trading system that CMC was offering. I then cross referenced CMC’s prices with real market prices, such as Bloomberg.
After I went through all of my trades, I found that I was incorrectly stopped out 10 times in a two week period. After more research, I then found that CMC is a market maker, ie, they make their own prices which do not necessarily follow the real market prices and they were clearly stopping out t. Read more

rades outside of the normal market parameters. On my final trade with them, I watched as my Take profit was hit but did not trigger and then the price receded, causing yet another loss that should not have been realised. After more research I found that successful traders trade with ECN providers whose markets are based on the real market price. Market makers such as CMC have a conflict of interest in that you are actually betting against CMC, not the real market. CMC clearly take advantage of this in hitting stops outside of market parameters and providing false market prices. I could not recommend CMC to anyone.

Not LGBTI friendly at all

I’m transgender and these guys are not trained. Anytime you have to deal with them on the phone expect to be accused of identity theft and fraud and called a liar just because of the sound of a voice. Even when I told them I’m trans on the phone and apologised for the confusion they remained rude to me. Take it from me if you identify LGBTI, not worth the headache, move on to someone else.

Hopeless – Endless Delays to Create an Account

I applied for a stockbroking account on 24 March 2020. It is 20 April 2020 and my account is still not established.
Initially CMC advised that their account creation process usually takes about one week, which is one reason why I decided to establish an account with them. Positive reviews were another reason.
I followed up with CMC ten days after I applied. They explained that due to coronavirus creating high volumes, account creation was taking them two weeks. Fair enough, I thought. Today I followed up for the second time as it is almost one month since I applied and still no account. I wish I had established an account elsewhere.

Beware Hidden Charges

Be warned – they charge 1% of the funds you have in your trading account as an «Adviser/Broker Service Fee – CMC Markets». Just noticed this on my bank statement and rang CMC who told me the fee is part of their service. What other broker charges you a service fee on your account. Last month I earned $620 interest and CMC charged $501 as an Adviser/Broker Fee. Give them a miss.

CMC markets – poor service

Have been using CMC since St George bank transferred to their platform.

Just recently they have stopped settling my sell and buy trades. Told me problem was bank rejected transfers. A lot of crap.
I transferred into my trading account . no problem. Had a dividend payment come in . no problem. Bank says everything with account is ok. Speak to people at CMC. No body seems to know anything . quite hopeless.
They owe me net around 60k overdue going back to a week.
Now I find they have a holding pledge of 6k on the account and yet they owe me 60k..
I have lots of trades between 20k and 100k.
Hope there is no scam here.

pretty simple to use

does everthing I need for the last 5 or so years (share trading).
I like that its the cheapest per trade & the price is discounted further when I trade more often.
It only lost a star because it doesnt have an option to pull up capital gains loss/tax at the end of FY, and most other tax information (like total fees for trading) is difficult to manually calculate off their tax tables. This information is so easy to provide! Its crazy.
To get this information from Sharesight (linked to CMC) for any decent sized portfolio costs $250 (per annum) & with Sharesight I have also needed to manually correct the cost of the price per trade, as it was incorrect (+doesnt add in the GST component)

On Wednesday the 13.11.2020 I rang CMC to place a sell order . I have a client code number for this purpose. I followed the prompts and was put through to a gentleman to whom I gave my order . This took longer then usual and when I had finished he told me I would have to wait while he put me through to a trader . So I waited and waited and was eventually put through to a trader .

Terrible customer service

This bunch take the title of worst customer service I’ve received in the last decade. After 5 weeks of frustration trying to resolve an account problem with their customer service team, I asked to speak to the team leader to escalate the issue. Despite specific promises to get back to me by Wednesday afternoon with a solution, here I am 10 days later with still no reply from him. What hope do we have of getting good service when this is the example they are given? The upper management would be well advised to listen to some of the calls and res. Read more

ponses to clients, to hear for themselves just how poor the service they are giving is. I should have read the litany of similar reviews before I signed up – it would have saved me stress, plenty of paperwork, and missed trading opportunities. I’ve now cut my losses and moved on to another broker and am much happier already.

Don’t respond, over 2 weeks and still no access

Set up a joint account online, then waited and waited for the account to open, had to contact them. Finally got an email they needed clarification of job title, both myself and my partner responded, waited again for a few days no response. Called them to be advised they needed the same information we had already provided. No idea what happened to the emails. So far I’m not impressed. Don’t have a lot of confidence we should even let them near our shares.

Waste of time and effort

Award winning platform I was told, would be good if I was able to use it.

I signed up to CMC online as I wanted them as my main brokerage account, filled in the forms to transfer all my shares to them from another broker, all forms confirmed and now we wait. After 2 weeks I had to contact them for an update to which they replied we were waiting on the other broker to complete things on their end. I contacted my original broker and they confirmed they in fact received a request from CMC and responded that the request was incorrect and to submit. Read more

again once they rectified on CMC end. Back to CMC for an update, by now it’s been 4 weeks. CMC say they have corrected their request and are waiting on original broker. Back I go to confirm with my original broker who say they have not received a second request. Ask CMC again for another update, no reply, a second email. no reply. 2 month and still no account. They must be making money hand over fist to not want more customers on their platform. I’ll take my business and patience elsewhere.

They simply do not respond. at all

Applied for an account for a trust so had to submit paperwork. Paperwork submitted. Followed up again to see why the non-response. Guess what? No response. Why do you bother advertising for new customers when those that come directly to you, you ignore?

Hard to believe they exist

They advised me to change the shares of my mothers estate to my fathers name but failed to tell me that they all needed to be transferred within 5 days of them informing the ASX. They didn’t tell me they informed the ASX. All the shares are locked up now and I miss the FY CGT advantages from selling the shares. And they refuse to help still or ring me

No way to withdraw anything, stay away from these guys.

It will seem, after our 3 yrs involvement with CMC Markets – no way that CMC Markets will let you to withdraw anything, ever.
Their ‘reasons’ will be from «documentation» not updated or «not sent» or «not recent enough» to – anything else.
We have put them on the test, and gave them our trust with some money, and submitted 5 times; 100% valid and timely recent documents,
it was either no answer to countless email inquiries from our side to them, or shoddy and questionable extra requests (you get the picture).
Australians – stay only with tradin. Read more

g companies that are ASIC regulated, domestic based – and can be called to responsibility by Australian law. If any trading company of this type has any other regulator registrations – aside from Australia – I advise not to go with them, as well, or think twice, for Australians. Test all of them for withdrawal transparency, once you signup, and every few weeks again, constantly. It’s only way they can prove to you they are genuine trading company. They should by regular also send you the summaries, with .pdf’s of your every transaction and your tax displayed clearly inside as well. Any other practices or behavior from their sides are: scam. Report these guys to ASIC and other regulators they are with, for your case, do that every time you are either (time or money) damaged, with detailed info for what wrong has been done to you, so it will affect their regulation licenses or they will lose them for particular country, for repeated offenses against your customer rights, or withdrawals and any other similar issues. It’s only fair. Our experience and vote here, currently with CMC Markets is (for about 3 years now of our account experience with them): not recommended, stay away from these guys, they have still a long way to go, to get regulated properly, and operate transparent enough to be on everyone’s benefit.

If trading costs matter to you, CMC Markets has you covered. In 2020, CMC Markets finished Best in Class in this category, thanks to its low spread offering, which is available to all its customer segments and account types.

Average spreads: CMC Markets offers highly competitive pricing, with average spreads on the EUR/USD as low as 0.7 pips and typical spreads of 0.81 pips, according to CMC Markets price data for the month of October 2020.

Rebates: CMC Markets offers liquidity rebates to active traders that surpass at least $25 million in notional trading volumes per month. Liquidity rebate levels range from $5 to as much as $10 per million for those that trade even higher amounts.

VIP accounts: CMC Markets Alpha offering is a VIP account launched through its Australia entity for high-net-worth clients who have $3K in commission spend or have more than $2.5m in holdings.

Platforms & Tools

CMC Markets Next Generation trading platform is fast, reliable, and comes packed with several unique tools and numerous features to support traders of all skill levels. No question, it is a market leader and will impress even the pickiest of traders. That’s why in 2020 Next Generation won our award as the best Web Based Platform. And, for traders who prefer MetaTrader 4 (MT4), it too is also available as an alternative platform.

Charting: When it comes to charts, the experience is quite convincing as there are plenty of tools and a long list of 79 technical indicators and studies, and 74 chart patterns that are attachable to each chart. Another feature that stands out from the charting experience is the pattern-recognition tool, which offers traders numerous options for trading and analyzing price action. Patterns auto-adjust when the chart time-scale is changed, enabling traders to scan from a one-minute chart to a monthly chart and see any respective patterns identified.

Automated trading: The current version of the Next Generation platform doesn’t feature the ability to run automated trading strategies – even though pattern recognition and social-trading tools are available. Trader’s looking for automated trading can choose the broker’s MT4 platform offering.


CMC Markets’ research offering is rich with in-house content, including its Insights News, CMC Markets Blog, CMC TV, and even publishes a print magazine called Opto, as well as third-party content from Reuters and Morningstar. Traders can also access additional tools within the platform, including pattern recognition software and client sentiment tools – both of which are available to live account holders.

Mobile Trading

The CMC Markets’ mobile app is cleanly designed and comes packed with multiple research tools, powerful charts, pre-defined watch lists for scanning, and much more.

Seamless platform experience: The overall look and feel of the CMC Markets mobile app closely resemble the web-based version of the Next Generation platform. No question, ample time was invested in the app’s development, especially given the challenge of organizing so much information with limited screen space.

Charting: Like much of the rest of the app, charting was just as impressive as the platform’s web version. Although only 29 of the 81 technical indicators are available on the mobile app, it’s still a strong offering compared to many of CMC Markets’ competitors, which often lack technical indicators altogether. While the charting experience was impressive, one minor drawback is that zooming in and out across different time frames was not always fluid.

Market research: For research purposes, another useful feature in the app is the economic calendar where you can subscribe to an event. Once subscribed to an event, an alert will notify you when the news release time approaches. There is also CMC TV, CMC Insights, the broker’s blog, Reuters News, educational content for trading strategies, the Trading Smart series, and webinar schedules.

Other tools: The pre-defined watch lists in the CMC Markets mobile app are great for identifying trade opportunities. Watch lists include popular products, price movers, and currently trending categories.

Customer Service

To score Customer Service, partnered with customer experience research group Customerwise to conduct phone tests from locations throughout the UK. For our 2020 Review, 330 customer service tests were conducted over six weeks.

With nearly 10,000 instruments to choose from across nearly every asset class and global market, CMC Markets is a great choice for traders looking for a multi-asset solution and broad range CFDs and forex pairs at competitive prices. The broker’s expansion into stockbroking in Australia, coupled with its frequent trader program and Alpha service for VIP clients, helps CMC Markets further distinguish itself as a brilliant multi-asset broker.

2020 Review Methodology

For our 2020 Forex Broker Review we assessed, rated, and ranked 30 international forex brokers over a five month time period. Each broker was graded on 105 different variables and, in total, over 50,000 words of research were produced.

While encouraged, broker participation was optional. Each broker had the opportunity to complete an in-depth data profile and provide executive time (live in person or over the web) for an annual update meeting.

All data submitted by brokers is hand-checked for accuracy. Ultimately, our rigorous data validation process yields an error rate of less than 1% each year, providing site visitors quality data they can trust. Learn more about how we test.
