Spread betting broker CMC Markets has been recognised at the Shares Magazine Shares Awards 2010 as the ‘Best Spread Betting Service’ in a prize awarded by industry analysts and magazine readers.

CMC Markets, which also provides CFD trading, was awarded the prize after a successful year of expansion, which saw launch a new spread betting portal and a new mobile trading platform, as the consumer market for CFD trading continues to hot up.  In spite of stiff competition from a highly competitive field, CMC Markets managed to cement its place as an industry-leading spread betting and CFD broker.

Executive chairman, and the man behind CMC Markets at its inception in 1989, Peter Cruddas said that customer service lay at the heart of CMC operations, and that the recognition of their significant progress in developing pioneering trading applications reflects CMC Markets is “passionate” about providing increasingly convenient ways for investors to do business.

CMC Markets facilitates over 2.2 million trades every month, making it one of the world’s larger spread betting brokers.  Nevertheless it remains a favourite amongst traders and industry analysts, not least because of its market-leading Web Platform which allows users total customisation of a powerful, highly intuitive and user-friendly spread trading interface.
