Questions

Answers

  • How do I know if I am classified as a 'private investor' or 'non-private investor' for market data purposes?

    This depends on the information you provided in your application form. You are classified as a 'non-private investor' for market data purposes if you meet one or more of the following conditions:

    • You are not a natural person (meaning that you are not an individual)
    • You access and use the market data and similar information for a commercial purpose or as a principal, officer, partner, employee or agent of any business or in connection with the professional management of third-party assets and not solely in an individual and personal capacity for your own personal investment activities
    • You are a financial institution or are registered with a securities agency, regulatory or self-regulatory body
    • You are engaged in a financial service business and are employed as a financial adviser for the purposes of your agreement and trading activities with CMC Markets
    • You engage in the business of accessing or aggregating the market data or similar information and redistributing or otherwise furnishing that information to any third parties

    If any of these apply to you and you subscribe to any market data price feeds for share CFDs, you will be charged the 'non-private investor' rate, which may be higher than the 'private investor' rate. Details of the charges can be found on the platform in the ‘market data’ section in ‘user preferences’.

  • Where does your holding cost on FX come from?

    The holding rate used when calculating the applicable holding costs on FX comes from the tom-next rate, which is the difference between the two currencies’ interest rates, with an additional 1% CMC Markets charge added.  Learn more about holding costs.
