What is mobile trading?

Mobile trading is the process of trading securities via a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. Mobile trading has revolutionised the trading industry, by providing smartphone users with the opportunity to trade outside the confines of traditional trading methods.

Mobile trading has given greater control and flexibility to traders - our native apps are custom-engineered for peak performance across both the Android and iOS operating systems. From setting up a range of notification types, to placing an order and tracking your progress with our fully functional charts, you can trade when you're on the move.

Is mobile trading safe?

While there is always an element of risk when using the internet, we've made our web and mobile platforms as safe as possible, including adding two-factor authentication (2FA) into our mobile app. We endeavour to adopt the latest technology and practices to maintain the security of your data and your account. This includes the protection of your data and ensuring secure access to your accounts and the trading platform. See how to set up 2FA on your trading app and learn how to stay safe online.

How does mobile trading work?

Mobile trading allows you to spread bet and trade CFDs on your chosen instruments with the same ease as from a desktop. With a mobile device, you can trade on the go without missing price alerts or market events, once you've set these up on your device. Follow our guide on how to start trading.

How can I start mobile trading?

To start trading from a mobile device, download our trading app for Android or iOS. Once you've logged in to your account, you can explore our product library, place order tickets and set up trading alerts to receive in-app push notifications for the instruments that you want to trade on.

How can you trade from your phone?

To trade from your phone, download our mobile app and register for a spread betting or CFD account. You can then start to open buy or sell positions on over 12,000 instruments, using our mobile-optimised charting, and technical and fundamental analysis tools. Learn how to get started with trading.

What apps can I trade on?

We offer mobile trading for Android and iOS software, where you can spread bet or trade CFDs on the go. Download our Android app or iOS app to get started.

Are trading apps safe?

Trading apps aren't always safe, but we've taken steps to make sure that your account is as secure and private as possible. Learn more about our two-factor authentication software, which allows you to protect your mobile account by setting up SMS, one-time password and barcode confirmations.

New to CMC Markets?

Is it free to open an account?

There's no cost when opening a live spread betting, CFD or FX Active account. You can also view prices and use tools such as charts, Reuters news or Morningstar quantitative equity reports, free of charge. However, you will need to deposit funds in your account to place a trade. Find out more about the costs of placing a trade.

Is CMC Markets regulated by the FCA?

Yes, CMC Markets UK plc (registration number 173730) and CMC Spreadbet plc (registration number 170627) are fully authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK. Retail client money is held in segregated client bank accounts and money held on behalf of clients is distributed across a range of major banks, which are regularly assessed against our risk criteria.

Is CMC Markets covered by the FSCS?

Yes, your eligible deposits with CMC Markets are protected up to a total of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensations Scheme (FSCS), the UK's deposit guarantee scheme. If CMC Markets ever went into liquidation, retail clients would have their share of segregated money returned, minus the administrator's costs in handling and distributing these funds. Any shortfall of funds up to £85,000 may be compensated under the FSCS.

How does CMC Markets segregate client money?

Under the FCA's Client Money rules, we're required to segregate client money (unless you agree with us otherwise) from CMC's own funds. The funds held in segregated bank accounts do not belong to CMC and will be held in a way that enables it to be identified as client money. Learn more about client money regulations

How does CMC Markets make money?

Our income primarily comes from our spreads, while other fees, such as overnight holding costs, make a minor contribution to our 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 can I trade on with CMC?

You can trade on over 12,000 financial instruments when you spread bet or trade CFDs with us. See a list of all our popular markets and instruments.
