General Features, Location and Regulation
CM Trading is located in Johannesburg, South Africa, and welcomes traders worldwide. Unfortunately, however, at this stage, US traders are not accepted (all thanks to US regulators who do not approve of CFDs). The broker’s motto is the commitment to innovation and user-friendly trading environment with professional and quick trade execution with tight spreads and competitive trading conditions.
CM Trading is a regulated broker and operates under FAIS License. Trading with regulated broker keeps your account funds save in segregated accounts and keeps the company on its toes to provide high-quality services.
One thing definitely worth mentioning in this CMTrading review is the special features the broker offers. There are:
CopyKat - with which you can mirror and social trade.
Guardian Angel – sends you warnings when important changes take place in the market conditions.
Flexi Analysis – brings you signals and market analysis in nearly 100 languages! That is very impressive and unique. Most of us can speak, read and understand English without a problem, however for most traders there is nothing like reading technical and fundamental analysis in their own language.
The broker offers all the traditional trading we are all used to together with CFDs for commodities, stocks and indices.
Available maximum leverage maxes up to 200:1 and even higher to 400:1 on mini accounts. For CFDs the upper leverage option is 50:1.
