Client Sentiment

Number of clients and position value

Our Client Sentiment feature not only offers you an insight into the percentage of CMC Markets clients who have bought versus the percentage who have sold on a particular CMC product, but it also shows you the monetary value of those positions (units x level 1 mid-price) as a percentage.

These sentiment values are available on our web and mobile platforms.

Minute-by-minute updates:

Our Client Sentiment data is updated every minute, giving you this valuable insight in almost real-time.

‘All’ and ‘Top’ client views

The default ’All Clients’ view displays data from all CMC Markets clients with an open position in this CMC Markets product and is used to display the relevant ‘number of clients’ or ‘position value’ statistic.

You can change this to show the ‘Top Clients’ view, which only displays data from CMC Markets clients who have made an overall account profit over the last three months (taking into account spreads and commissions), with an open position in this CMC Markets product. 'Top Clients' refers to overall account performance and is not specific to performance in that particular CMC Markets product.

Our interactive Client Sentiment graphic allows you to view this information separately, or in one combined view, for easier comparison. The darker shade in the graphic represents the ‘All Clients’ view and the lighter shade represents the ‘Top Clients’ view.


Daily Change

Both these sentiment values are shown for the previous day’s trading at 5:00 pm ET (represented by the inner circle of the graphic), and for the most recent measurement for the current day’s trading (represented by the outer circle of the graphic). This allows you to easily see how sentiment has changed with that day’s market news and price movements.

When you view the Client Sentiment for a particular CMC product, you will also be able to see other CMC products that are being traded by clients that have open positions in the main CMC product. Client Sentiment is available for live accounts on both our web-based and mobile platforms but not for demo account holders.
