    CMC Markets/TradingView - technical analysis

    Hi folks! So I've signed up with CMC markets to have a crack at Forex. Been trading BTC solidly for about 6 months and starting to see some consistent profits (finally broke even after some heavy losses early on!). So yeah, opened an account with CMC CFDs. Thing is I'm used to doing my...

    Fee to deposit cash into my online broking account

    Hi there. I'm just getting started and tonight I set up an online trading account with CMC. Their fees on trades seem reasonable but then when I looked at the "How do I fund my account" section, looks like I got to pay 0.6% of the deposit amount to deposit cash into my CMC account...

    CMC Markets having issues today?

    I woke up this morning to see all of my open orders (stop losses) "rejected". All my stocks still show up under Stock Holdings but I am unable to re-enter my stop losses. If I go into any stock to buy or sell, it says "invalid stock code entered". Very strange and a little worrying. I tried to...

    CMC Advisor Service Fee

    Unbelievable!! I was looking at my CMC account, and noticed I have been charged $2.99 for an "advisor service fee". I wasn't too sure what it was for, but remembered I sent them an email querying them about something. I want to email them to ask what they charged me $2.99 for, but they will...

    CMC Markets Stockbroking Account

    What is the general consensus on this account for trading ASX equities? My plan is to swing trade primarily, 2 - 3 trades per week most likely. Start off with 10k to play with. Good risk management and trading plan. I will primarily be using technical analysis with 20% of time going into...

    CMC Markets share order entry

    HI, I am just starting to use CMC for shares not CFD's. Not sure how I place a stop entry order or if you can e.g. 1. if ABC is trading at $1.00 but I want to confirm my thoughts of an uptrend first and not buy until it reaches $1.10 how do I place this order? 2. Also, say a XYZ is at...

    CMC Markets stockbroking designed to steal your interest

    CMC markets offer attractive brokerage rates ($9.90 minimum or 0.1%) making commsec, nabtrade, and etrade for example overly expensive. For example $15000 traded with cmc will cost you $15 rather than 29.95 with commsec and nabtrade making cmc the broker of choice for certain. But they give...

    CMC Markets = no volume?

    I'm going to open an IB account, but just opened up my CMC one for the first time since I begun learning to trade. Is there no volume on the charts? Surely not! That would be insane.
