Never seen that sort of slippage on stops either.

When I traded regualarly with cmc yes I got loads of requotes but slippage on stops was unusual.

At the end of the day I guess most sb firms have their good and bad points and you just have to weigh them up and go with whats best for your needs.
I honestly don't know what to say about the negative posts on this thread. Too much complaining and too little real facts for my taste. CMC have a slippage model they adopt, in return you are supposed not to get narrow spread, no re-quotes and no rejections. Apparently by some they give too much slippage (although others are saying the opposite), so I can't really tell what is the case. Sorry to say I am not able at this moment to trade live with CMC. As for for the site, well, it will get a upgrade quite soon. But honestly, I couldn't care less about the looks, if they only deliver what they claim. Charts and so forth I take care of myself, the execution is the main and overall thing for me.

Best thing to do is to open a live account (it takes 30 mins) and start trading, what's the hold up? When you start trading live then see the games begin.

Yes I agree, personal experience is always best. I would have done so long ago, if only I was allowed to. At the moment it is not open for foreigners.

You didn't appreciate my honest critique of CMC's supposed next gen platform, and you didn't answer my question as to what you wanted from me, so here's one for you.

CMC's next gen platform is brilliant, I like the fact that I have to choose well in advance a Buy OR a Sell ticket - it stops me becoming confused as to what I want to do.

When I click on Buy or Sell there is often a very pretty little circle thing spinning around whilst I wait for the fill - very entertaining.

I love the surprise as to how much I have lost when my stop loss gets hit - wouldn't life be boring if one only lost what one expected to lose.

Hope that's better for you.

Yeah - hundreds of trades. The platform wasn't bad at the start, fills were quick and stops were in the most part getting hit on the money, all it needed was the few extra features that has been discussed...

It has since dramatically deteriorated to the point that a few extra features are not going to help - shame because I was a keen supporter of Peter and what I thought he was trying to do.

Sorry about that, but I just wanted more info from you about the whole picture of trading with CMC, how many trades and such. Please answer my post #155.
