Broker CMC Markets is considered an experienced forex organization that has been on the market for a long time. Users are interested in it because through this broker, they make deals with individuals, and can earn money for themselves. 

Users' opinions were divided. Some believe that it is good to earn and money is withdrawn without problems, and others summarize the fact that it is not necessary to contact him – the maximum, you can withdraw from there a penny that does not pay off labor and invested money.

Broker's description

The broker CMC Markets has been operating since 1989 and is considered one of the best betting providers that has been around for 30 years. 

The firm works legally. Headquartered in London, there are offices in most major cities. The broker provides services to traders from the EU, Southeast Asia, Oceania, and of course in the CIS.

CMC Markets License and Regulation

The broker is licensed by several regulators at once. In particular, licenses were issued:

  • ASIS;
  • OSC
  • BAFIN;
  • THE NFA. 

The presence of a large number of regulators in theory means that the company meets high quality standards, and therefore customers should not worry about the financial condition of the broker.

At the same time, this approach may not be very convenient for the traders themselves. Each regulator sets its own rules, which are mandatory for compliance by the broker. Often they can be absurd or impossible for CIS citizens.

In addition, we should not forget examples when well-known companies left the market leaving traders with nothing. 

One of the most high-profile cases was the case of Icon Group, which had three of the most prestigious licenses, but, as a result, declared bankruptcy and said goodbye to customers "in English".

Icon Group received 3 of the highest and most authoritative licenses in the world, but, in the end, did not pay the trader, not paying about 20,000 dollars, so when choosing a broker pay attention to his reputation among users. 

Complaints and claims

The company has a decent image and, at the moment, does not sue anyone. In any case, there was no information about major scandals in the media.
