Trevor breaks down the process step-by-step, so you can clearly see this institutional-level tool in action. After establishing the preferred stock universe, in this case the Euro Stoxx Banking index, Trevor explains how equities rotate through the graph’s four quadrants, and what each of them signifies. By the end of the video, by using RRG, Trevor has identified potential trading opportunities within the sector.

What are signature share baskets?

Our signature share baskets are CFD portfolios of 10-40 individual stocks constructed in collaboration with the most prominent thought leaders in the industry.

Rebalanced quarterly

Signature share baskets are CFD portfolios created by CMC in collaboration with prominent thought leaders, utilising strategies refined from years of experience trading in the markets.

Diversify your risk

Through diversification, share baskets give you broad exposure to a theme, avoiding the risk of putting all of your eggs in one basket when trading on a single company.

Low costs

Share baskets have no commissions when placing a trade. They also benefit from reduced holding costs – the price of holding a leveraged position overnight – compared to individual equities.

Leveraged trading

Spread betting or trading CFDs on shares baskets offers up to 5:1 leverage. This means for every £1 committed, you'll have £5 of exposure in the markets. This is equivalent to a 20% margin requirement. Any profit or loss will be based on your exposure.

Low costs & commission-free

Share baskets have two fundamental costs:

1. The spread between the bid and ask price which you pay when opening a trade.
2. An overnight holding cost for holding the position. We’ve annualised the daily fees below so you can compare with other trading opportunities. You’ll also notice that you can trade either long (buy) or short (sell) on these instruments.

Through a unique partnership with BETA Financial and RRG Research, CMC brings you an innovative product powered by institutional-level technology.


Relative Rotation Graphs enable traders to identify market rotations in their early stages, whether that’s an entire asset class, a sector, or an individual stock. By leveraging this proprietary trading tool, RRG UK Momentum+ captures early-stage, positive momentum in FTSE 350 stocks. Equities rotating at an RRG®-heading of 0-90 degrees are exhibiting positive relative strength compared with the overall FTSE 350 benchmark, and may be pushed higher by positive momentum. RRG UK Momentum+ is a custom CFD portfolio made up of 10 equally-weighted stocks that fit this criteria, rebalanced quarterly.

The methodology

"Whether you're a portfolio manager or an individual trader, you want to know which market, sector or stock will outperform their benchmark. That means ‘relative strength’ is the keyword here, however, traditional RS analysis requires charts showing 1-1 relationships – what if you want to compare every stock in the FTSE 350? This is where RRG® comes in. This type of visualisation enables traders to compare hundreds of assets like-for-like, and it is this institutional-level tool that powers RRGUK Momentum+."
