CMC Markets CFD and MT4 FX Active Offering Platform Review

CMC Markets CFD and MT4 FX Active Offering Platform Review

Among the plethora of brokerage offerings for consumers to choose from, CMC Markets is one of the most competitive platforms that stands out due to its stellar reputation, wide range of products, sleek and seamless UI/UX experience, and competitive fees and spreads.

To sign-up for the Next Generation account, please click here.

For MetaTrader4 account, please click here to get started.

Founded in 1989, CMC Markets is a well-established, publicly traded, and highly regarded U.K. forex broker that has successfully adapted to the ever-changing online brokerage landscape. The company is listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) under the ticker symbol, CMCX.

CMC Market’s flagship platform features a rich and engaging web-based offering aptly named “Next Generation.” This, coupled with the ubiquitous Metatrader MT4 platform and an updated mobile application, offers a good combination of trading products and tools to their targeted customers.

CMC Markets provides traders and investors access to an extensive range of instruments, including Contract for Difference (CFD) across many different asset classes such as commodities, equities shares, and indices. In addition, CMC Markets offers competitive spreads for Forex traders, which are dynamic in nature and provides real-time updates to news and publications.

On top of all these bells and whistles, if you trade with high volume, you may stand to gain access to CMC Markets Alpha and enjoy extra perks from your active trading.

CMC Markets Alpha is a premium service which is created to take your average trading experience to an entirely new level. Client benefits include differentiated pricing schemes & rebates, premium support, and more! (more information at the end of the article).

Contract For Difference (CFD)

To give some background of what a Contract for Difference (CFD) is, it is essentially a leveraged derivative tool that allows users to trade on margins, meaning that with a small amount of capital, they can gain exposure to a larger amount of assets, thereby enhancing the potential profits one could make.

Currently, CMC Market offers the following types of CFDs:

  • Forex CFD
  • Global Indices CFD
  • Commodities CFD
  • Shares CFD
  • Treasuries CFD

CFD contracts generally have no expiry dates, which means that investors can keep the CFD positions open for as long as they maintain the margin requirements. However, the open positions are subjected to a charge called the “holding cost” which can vary across different products.

Margin Requirement

When you are trading in CFDs, you are leveraging your capital, which means any gains or losses will be magnified.

As a trader, it is important to keep track of the overall margin requirements to avoid a margin call. You may also close your positions to maintain the required capital to sustain other positions.

To illustrate an example:

The margin for 1 CFD on Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJI) is at 5%.

When you buy 1 contract at the prevailing market price of USD33,000, the initial margin you will have to cough up is USD 1,650.

In the event that global markets fall and the Dow Jones Index drops to USD30,000, the notional value of your contract is now worth USD 30,000.

Assuming the margin requirement to maintain the contract is at USD 1,500, this means that you would have to top up USD2,850 ($1,650 – $3,000 – $1,500) in order to avoid a margin call and have your positions stay open.

Alternatively, by closing your existing position, you can work out the different scenarios in place to ensure that you have a margin of safety and buffer for your capital, so your positions remain solvent.

CMC MT4 Platform – Sleek and Seamless UI/UX

CMC Markets MetaTrader 4 (MT4) is one of the most popular forex trading platforms.

The platform’s popularity has emerged thanks to its Expert Advisor’s (EA’s) automated trading ability, advanced order types, technical analysis, and user-friendly interface. MT4 also encompasses advanced features for trading strategies including both pattern recognition and an economic calendar.

Friendly UI/UX interface designs are also always a bonus point when it comes to selecting the right brokerage platform to trade.

The interface works well in desktop web application, making it very easy for both beginners and advanced players to navigate.

It also has a clean and eye-catching design with a perfectly blended colour scheme that contrasts red and green, making it easier for users to identify profits or losses, up or down candles, and buy or sell prices. The overlapping of graphs, icons, and information about the company or FX pairs also makes it very user-centred and easy to digest.

Additionally, the platform allows you to access draw tools, studies and overlays, as well as advanced chart types that can help you navigate the pattern and where it is heading over the next few days or weeks.

An illustration below shows the Fibonacci support line for the AUD/USD pair which has been trending sideways for quite a while.

When it comes to placing trades, the platform provides a wide range of order types. Examples include:

  • Market order – which is used to open or close trades at the current market price.
  • Limit and stop entry orders – which is used to enter or exit the market at a specific price.
  • Stop loss order – which is used to specify the price at which a position will be closed if the market moves adversely.
  • Trailing stop loss order – which is used to follow market price as it moves in your favour.
  • Guaranteed stop loss order – which is used to provide certainty that your stop-loss will be executed at your desired price.
  • Boundary order – which is used to allow you to set a price range that you are willing to accept.

The trading platform also allows you to try out trading on a demo account for CFD and Forex. This grants users a realistic environment to test trading in a simulated real-time environment.

Competitive Commission Fees

CMC Markets earns money mainly from spreads between the bid and offer prices of an asset. In the case of stock CFDs, commissions are also charged.

Spreads at CMC Markets are among one of the tightest in the industry, making it a competitive proposition for active traders. Rebates are also given to active traders who trade a high-volume amount with the brokerage.

CMC Markets recognizes that keeping commissions low and competitive is an important consideration for users because they will not want to incur a hefty part of their overall transactions on fees.

For CMC Markets, their commission fees on CFD vary by country of origin, with most markets charging commission fees of just 0.10% except in a few countries such as US, UK, Australia, and Canada. Moreover, there are minimal commission fees imposed so even if you just buy 1 lot of 100 Singapore shares, your minimum commission fees would amount to SGD10.

Like all CFD brokerages, there is a holding fee that is accrued daily should you hold the position overnight.




Trade with CMC Alpha Advantage

Now, if you are someone who frequently trades in high volume orders and looking to enjoy a little bit more perks from your transaction, then you need to consider the CMC Markets Alpha.

Introducing CMC Markets Alpha, a premium service brought to you by CMC Markets – this will take your average trading experience to an entirely new level.

As an Alpha client, you get to enjoy benefits such as:

  • Volume-based discounts & friendly pricing schemes (example: rebates)
  • Premium support from the client’s personal account manager
  • Exclusive invites to VIP events & seminars
  • Personalised research consisting of market insights & technical analysis

For more information on what CMC Markets Alpha can offer, please visit their website herefor the full benefits detailed breakdown.

Conclusion

Overall, we were quite impressed by the proposition that CMC markets offers.

Whether it is reputable branding, functionality, variety in product offerings or competitive commission fees, CMC Markets stands above the competition as one of the most competitive brokerages in the industry.

These factors make CMC Markets an all-round winner and a serious contender whether you are a beginner, an intermediate, or advance traders.

How I Trade for Free with ProsperUs by CGS-CIMB?

How I Trade for Free with ProsperUs by CGS-CIMB?

In this article, we will be exploring ProsperUs by CGS CIMB – a one stop brokerage platform that caters to every investor’s needs. Read on to find out its competitive advantage and its latest National Day promotion.

Click here to find out more information about ProsperUs’ True Zero commission.

The accelerating speed and growing industry of Fintech is putting the world on its feet with its fast evolutionary towards a digital economy – driven by technology, innovation, and new ways of doing and transacting business in a seamless way.

Over the past few years, the security brokerage industries have been buzzing about the disruption it brings to the table by providing consumers with safer, quicker, and more convenient alternatives to the traditional brokerages.

Gone are the days where you need to take more than a few minutes to log in, give instructions, deposit, withdraw and make your transactions. Consumers are expecting a seamless digital experience when it comes to handling their own money and accounts and this gives opportunities to leading online brokerage firm for intelligent investment.

Introducing ProsperUs by CIMB

ProsperUs by CGS CIMB is the new digital investment service designed to empower millennials with smart and accessible personal finance management.

For ProsperUs, it is all about transparency and simplicity. This is one of the main reasons why they have a straightforward fee structure with no platform fee, no custody fee in SG, and absolutely no hidden charges.

With ProsperUs, it allows their users access to a diverse range of markets and asset classes across 30 exchanges and 25 markets. Additionally, ProsperUs also offers a comprehensive selection of investment options, including stocks, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds, CFDs, forex, options, and futures. Whether you’re a seasoned investor looking to diversify or a beginner eager to explore various opportunities, ProsperUs can cater to all your investment needs in one convenient place.

“Zero commission fees” generally refers to the practice of some brokerage firms that offer trading services without charging a commission fee for executing trades.

This means that investors can buy and sell stocks without incurring the typical brokerage fees that are associated with each trade.

However, it’s important to note that while some brokers may advertise “zero commission fees,” there may still be other costs or fees associated with trading, such as platform fees, spread, account maintenance fees, currency conversion fees, and withdrawal fees.

It is important to carefully review the terms and conditions of any brokerage offering “zero commission fees” to understand the complete fee structure and any potential hidden costs.

There was an article last year which was reported from the Business Times regarding an unfortunate incident on zero commission fees but with hidden costs which goes viral and left the impacted investor unwittingly having to pay a huge amount of hidden costs thereafter.




Celebrate Singapore National Day Campaign Together with ProsperUs

As part of the 58th National Day celebration, ProsperUs is offering an attractive True Zero commission for SGX stocks up until the 30th of September 2023.

In addition, they are also giving out prizes to weekly winners from local companies – which include the likes of items from PRISM+, Razer, LUMOS, and Secret Lab.

Furthermore, funding incentive for a dollar-for-dollar matching (capped at maximum of $580) is also given to entitled participant who makes the 58th deposit in each of the week starting from 7 August 2023 to 30 September 2023. For instance, if the 58th deposited amount for a given week is $500, CGS-CIMB will match this by $500 and credit the amount into the winner’s ProsperUs Account.

Winners of the previous weeks are tabled and announced in their website:

The commission fees tiering for the different key market are also set very competitively.

For instance, commissions for the US markets are set at a fixed rate of USD 5 for any of the exchanges listed below even if you fall under a beginner Rookie tier.

For all other markets, the fees are set competitively at a fraction of the costs ranging from 0.10% – 0.15%.

With these savings and no hidden costs, users can have a piece of mind and focus on better returns on their investments.




Key Features – Build & Boost

The ProsperUs platform UI/UX itself is sleek, simple to navigate and user friendly.

The home page has a dashboard summary where you have news announcement on one side and the overall portfolio and funds summary on the other.

You can also choose two main applications: BUILD or BOOST – which is primarily designed for different type of users.

For BUILD – it is designed for users who prefer a longer-term approach to investing.

For BOOST – it is designed for users who enjoy trading with the markets on a more frequent basis.

There are a variety of different products that you can choose – Stocks, Bonds, ETFs or Funds.

If you choose stocks, the platform also offers different major nationality origin of stocks that are most popular, namely Singapore, US, Hongkong and/or China.

What I like about the platform is it provides a one-stop avenue for investors to study the fundamentals and charts of the company before buying or selling.

Now, if you are someone who trades a little more frequently in the market, you might want to choose the BOOST feature option.

It brings you to a more sophisticated page where you can look at more depth on the fundamentals and add different indicators to your chart.

For instance, I have indicated the MACD and the Fibonacci retracement line for Tencent Holdings (HKG: 0700) to allow me to find a better set-up for my position.




Conclusion

I think there are good reasons why either as an investor or trader, you should give ProsperUs a try for your next trade:

1.) ProsperUs by CSG-CIMB Securities (Singapore) Pte Ltd is a regulated license broker in Singapore under a Capital Market Services (CMS) license.

2.) ProsperUs allows direct access to key popular markets such as SG, US, CN, HK in one brokerage platform ecosystem.

3.) ProsperUs offers different levels of trading platform applications, namely BUILD and BOOST, which caters to different needs of users.

4.) ProsperUs offers a wide variety of different products which includes stocks, ETFs, bonds, REITs, CFDs, Options, and more.

5.) ProsperUs offers competitive low commission and platform trading fees and has no hidden agenda costs that are not mentioned.‌

Why I am Staying Invested in Suntec REIT

Why I am Staying Invested in Suntec REIT

Original Post from THE SINGAPOREAN INVESTOR

From its property in Suntec City when it was listed back in 09 December 2004, Suntec REIT’s (SGX:T82U) portfolio has expanded to include multiple commercial properties in Singapore, Australia, as well as in the United Kingdom worth over S$12 billion as at 31 December 2022.

‌The Singapore-listed REIT is also among the 10 REITs that I’m currently invested in. Among the reasons why I have made the investment decision back in February 2020, based on the statistics between FY2012 and FY2019 (a period of 8 financial years) include:

  • Consistent financial performances over the years, where its gross revenue and net profit income grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% and 4.7%;
  • Portfolio occupancy rate of its retail and office properties were maintained at around the 98-99% level throughout the 8 years I have looked at, which in my opinion is a very strong one;
  • On its debt profile, gearing ratio is also very healthy, where it has been maintained at under 40.0%;
  • Finally, in terms of its distribution payout to unitholders, I like its quarterly payout frequency, along with its stable growth over the years – from 9.49 cents/unit in FY2012 to 9.507 cents/unit in FY2019.
