  • CMC Markets is the first leveraged trading provider to launch a print magazine
  • Opto is an editorial product written and edited by business journalists – the magazine will focus on the ‘stories behind the markets’
  • It will feature interviews with leading figures in the world of finance and business, along with insight and analysis from some of the best traders and money managers in the industry

CMC Markets, a leading global provider of online trading, has today launched a new magazine and online hub, Opto, covering a range of trading, investment and business topics.

The magazine will bring the markets and those who trade them to life by telling stories of creativity, innovation, brilliance and conflict. Each edition of Opto will feature in-depth interviews with traders, CEOs and money managers, as well as deep-dive reports on trends, innovation and emerging opportunities.

The launch edition includes a profile on short-selling maverick Fahmi Quadir, who features on Netflix’s ‘Dirty Money’ series, plus a 10-page report on cannabis stocks with insights from key industry figures such as Bruce Linton, CEO of Canopy Growth, the world’s biggest legal cannabis company.

The issue also includes columns and masterclasses from established traders, updates on key stocks and a look at the battle for TV media dominance.

With a print circulation of 10,000, the magazine will be available in corporate offices, major airport lounges and shared workspaces in London.

Edward Gotham, Head of Growth at CMC Markets, commented: “We are very excited to launch Opto today as it provides both traders and non-traders with a valuable source of inspiration that we believe no other publication is currently offering.

“From experience, our clients are currently inundated with large volumes of information, as are many of us in our day-to-day lives, so we have ensured that Opto offers unique content which looks at the world of finance and business through a different lens. Future editions will continue to feature interviews with some of the leading innovators in the financial services industry, providing readers with new insights and enhancing their overall trading experience.”

Tomas Jivanda, Opto editor, added: “We’re doing something a bit different from the traditional coverage of the markets with Opto by focusing on stories; whether it be the creativity of innovators building new public companies, or the motivations and personalities behind traders going out on their own. We’ve also looked carefully at the experience that print can offer through considered design and careful story curation.”
