Trading platforms

Some companies decide to use and integrate the most modern trading platforms for their usage. However, there are companies, usually bigger and better-established ones, who choose to take a different path. This road is precisely the case with MCM Markets who have their platform for trading. The platform allows Android users, tablet users, and I devise users to trade easy and on the go. This specially designed platform has over twenty drawing tools, technical indicators, customizable charts, price history and other tools which every trader appreciates. The platform allows also limit orders, streaming news feeds, nonstop trading and charting. Email and mobile alerts are not present, neither are OCO and Market orders.


Security and customer service

The levels of security with that company are not very high looking from the technical point of view. Probably because they are more traditional trading firm or because of any other reason, SSL encryption is absent on their website. However, some companies offer SSL encryption only for their transaction section of the site. Usually, that is when the trader uses third party app for money transaction, and this app is installed on the site but is not visible to the customer. In such cases the transactions are secure. MCM Markets use such technology. Their security policy goes as far as personal information safety. They do not sell or give the personal data to anyone.

The two methods for contacts are phone and email, office and web form. The company supports several languages – Chinese Mandarin, English, Spanish, Swedish, French, German and Italian.


Deposit and withdraw

The approach to technology is the same with this company when it comes to payment options too. There are only two payment options a card – debit or credit and WebMoney. The currencies which can be used are AUD, GBP, NZD, NOK, USD, EUR, SEK and SGD. The minimum deposit is $0.The minimum account size is 200 EUR; the spread is fixed and for EUR/USD is 0.7. The minimum position size is one lot.

Withdrawing money is easy. The client can use the same technology used for the deposit.


Deposit bonus and loyalty programs

CMC Markets do not offer any rewards or loyalty programs for their clients.
