CMC Markets Connect Launches Spot FX

June 2nd, 2021 – CMC Markets Connect announced today the upgrade of their tech stack in order to facilitate faster price construction and increase the range of asset classes available to trade. CMC Connect clients will now have access to an additional 60+ Spot FX pairs and precious metals.

The Connect team have been looking for microsecond-level speed improvements by partnering with Quod Financial to utilise their AI/Machine Learning powered algorithms and thereby upgrade existing infrastructure. Together CMC and Quod’s technical integration in LD4 between Quod’s quoting servers & CMC’s trading engine optimises price feed management; this in turn powers CMC’s ability to provide consistently competitive pricing.

Richard Elston, Group Head of Institutional at CMC Markets commented, “In response to the demands of our expanding institutional client book we have upgraded our technology stack to allow for faster price construction across a wider range of asset classes. Today’s announcement comes following the launch of our dedicated institutional brand at the start of 2021 and acts to support our shift to an ‘institutional-first’ approach to developing and optimising our product suite”

In addition to the broker's 30+ years of experience in offering CFD-backed instruments, CMC Connect will now offer clients access to Spot FX. A large range spot FX pairs and precious metals are now available, marking the first of a number of product launch announcements the company expects to make in the next 12 months, focused initially on expanding their FX proposition.

CMC recognises its background as a retail brokerage and, as detailed in a recent whitepaper on the value of retail client flow, the Connect team look to leverage this experience by offering institutional clients access to Tier 1 CFD liquidity. The new technology being rolled out from today will impact both existing and new business with low-latent price discovery facilitating more competitive pricing on both the existing range of CFD instruments and the new spot FX products.

David Fineberg, Deputy CEO at CMC Markets added; “This year we’ve set ourselves ambitious growth targets for the B2B arm of our business which we plan to achieve by servicing the needs of a greater range of institutional client types and their respective trading strategies.”
