CMC Markets’ second major upgrade of 2013 strengthens its award-winning trading platform

Share Article

CMC Markets announced today that it has completed further upgrades to its award-winning Next Generation platform¹. The latest enhancement has been heavily driven by valuable client feedback plus new features developed by their international technology team.

Since launching the Next Generation platform in 2010, CMC Markets one of the leading providers of spread betting and CFD trading, has continually developed its technology to directly respond to the evolving needs of its most active clients. This upgrade is their second of 2013.

User Experience

Significant changes have been made to the way CMC Markets’ clients navigate the Next Generation platform. These include a new toolbar to make their advanced features more accessible, new short-cut functions, enhanced order ticket design and increased control over the platform tools so their clients can maximise their experience, even on a smaller screen.

Social Media Integration

CMC Markets clients can now access social media via the Next Generation platform. With access to Twitter, YouTube and their global analyst blog pages, CMC Markets clients can consider all of these sources of financial news in their decision making process.

Customised News Feeds

In direct response to client feedback, CMC Markets’ Reuters news service can now be filtered to only show headlines related to products within a specific watchlist. This gives their clients a truly customised and personalised experience. Additionally, CMC Markets clients can benefit from a real-time feed called Insights², which is populated directly by their team of global analysts to inform clients of specific market events.

Mobile Enhancements

With more than 31% of client trades now executed via mobile devices³, CMC Markets has also updated its mobile offering to satisfy the increasing demand for comprehensive on-the-go trading platforms. Notably, the popular economic calendar available on the web-based platform has been added to the iPhone and iPad apps, allowing clients access to important economic announcements and the option of receiving push alerts even when they are not logged in.

Further developments include upgrades to mobile charts and a fully customisable iPad menu bar.

Ryan O’Doherty (Co-head of Product Development) said:

"We are not resting on our laurels. The ongoing development of the platform allows us to provide our client base with the most up-to-date trading platform which they can customise to suit them. We have an international team of developers who have taken on-board valuable feedback and we’re confident this upgrade will further enhance our clients’ trading experience."

He added: "Our goal to develop the best platform possible was recently recognised by winning the Best Online Trading Platform and Best Online Charts at the 2013 MoneyAM awards, before the latest enhancements to our service. Going forward, our aim is to ensure that we continue to listen to our clients in order to constantly improve our offering and build upon the success of our platform."
