How does CMC make its money?
Our income primarily comes from our spreads, while other fees, such as overnight holding costs, make a minor contribution to overall revenue.
We never aim to profit from our clients' losses. Our aim is to build long-term relationships by providing the best possible trading experience through our technology and customer service.
What costs should I be aware of?
There are a number of costs to consider when spread betting, including spread costs, holding costs (for trades held overnight which is essentially a fee for the funds you borrow to cover the leveraged portion of the trade), rollover costs on expiring forward trades, and guaranteed stop-loss order charges (if you use this risk-management tool). Find out more about our trading fees.
