CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. Between 74-89% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

CMC Markets Key Features

CMC Markets are clearly one of the better spread betting brokers. Like IG, they have been around for ages and stand out primarily because of their investment in trading systems.  The company started off as Deal4Free back in the old days and won a lot of business from competitors because of tights spreads on the most liquid markets.
