The new spread betting platform from CMC Markets has launched to a widespread positive reception, with traders and analysts in equal measure responding positively to the newly developed application which boasts a ‘revolutionary’ new trading mechanism.

The much anticipated trading platform, which combines a completely new visual with improved trading functions has been praised by new traders, analysts and existing CMC clients alike, many of whom have publicly said it builds on the success of the previous CMC offering.

Proclaiming the arrival of ‘the next generation of spread betting’, the CMC markets platform has been several years in the making, with an extensive investment in research and software development behind the scenes to make it arguably the most advanced consumer spread betting platform in the world.

The platform allows traders to research and read up on the major spread betting markets CMC Markets offer, in addition to its drag-and-drop interface which allows, for the first time, true off-chart trading.

The brainchild of experienced broker Peter Cruddas, CMC Markets with its new trading platform look set to live up to expectations in reinventing the method of spread betting through the CMC platform online.
