Market data – private investor

The information you provided during the application process classifies you as a “private investor” for market data purposes as you meet all of the conditions set out below:

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

Therefore, if you subscribe for any market data price feeds in respect of share CFDs you will be charged the private investor rate. Details of the charges can be found on the platform in the ‘market data’ section in ‘user preferences’.

If you have any questions regarding your classification as a private investor for market data purposes please contact our Client Management team on +44 (0)203 003 8588 or at clientmanagement@cmcmarkets.co.uk.
