The year is rapidly drawing to a close, as are the financial markets. Trading on CMC's platform will close for New Year's day. Last trading occurs at the US close (tomorrow morning), and will re-open at the Asia Pacific opening on Friday, January 2. Please be aware that many underlying markets will close earlier.

Many thanks to our readers and commentators for your support this year, whether you're a CMC client or not. All of us here wish you a peaceful and prosperous 2015.
