Trades indices commission free with powerful leverage

Access to international markets with margin rates starting at 2.75%

With CMC Markets you can trade nearly 30 indices globally including North America, Europe and Asia. With margin rates starting at 2.75% in North America and 15% overseas you can maximize the use of your capital. For example, if the margin requirement was 5% for a index CFD with a $500 initial margin, you can open a position worth $10,000. You should remember that when trading with leverage your losses can be greater too, so ensure you understand the risks.

Increased flexibility with extended trading hours, no contract sizes and commission free trading

Many of our most popular indices including the SPX500, US30 and US NDAQ 100 trade almost 24 hours. And with no minimum contract sizes and per trade commission you can trade when you want as often as you want. Take advantage of pre or post market news and scale in and out of your trade without incurring added costs.

Extra quote precision for full transparency

With precision pricing you can expect a higher level of pricing accuracy; in some cases our prices are as precise as 100th of a point. With precision pricing we are offering you a higher level of execution through pricing accuracy.

With CMC Markets, you will see index CFD prices quoted up to 2 decimal places, so there will be no price rounding. By offering this level of price precision you have a greater transparency on our market prices. We are so confident in our pricing structure that, if you view charts for the index CFDs you want to trade, you will see a real-time tick data chart of our dealing spreads throughout the day.
