CMC Markets one of the leading CFD and spread betting brokers has launched a new product to compliment it’s recent Prime Brokerage FX institutional offering.

API will allow institutions to provide their clients with CMC’s multi asset coverage.

The CMC Markets API includes:

  • Over 80 index, commodity and treasury CFDs, plus more than 300 FX pairs (including many synthetics)
  • Stable liquidity and market depth across all asset classes, augmented by our own internal flow
  • Rapid, flexible integration directly through an industry-standard FIX API, or by routing through your existing third-party fintech solution providers


Richard Elston, who joined CMC Markets as Head of Institutional in 2015 after previously being head of institutional sales at IG and Saxo Capital Marktes said:

“Technological advances and a real shortage of mid-market liquidity has created a genuine opportunity in the institutional market. With over 25 years of trading excellence, a listing on London Stock Exchange and a range of award winning trading technology that has been specifically developed to meet the needs of the institutional market, CMC Markets is in a clear position to meet this need.”
