I sent a link to CMC for this thread so lets see if they reply..........
As of today we have cut many of our spreads on our most popular instruments including the UK100, German 30 and major FX pairs. We are addressing the fact many SB companies quote spreads from X points but then if you check the average spreads it can be much higher. We aim to offer the most consistent, competitive spreads in the market with exceptional execution, even during Non Farms or major market events such as the Flash Crash during the summer.
As regards to the charts, there will be constant updates every couple of weeks to add in the core functionality and technical indicators required. It is not our plan to stop work on this system, expect constant, regular updates and a world class charting package very shortly. Seriously.
I'm a big fan of the old Marketmaker system but many of its features will be replicated on the next gen system including multiple saved layouts and additional trading tools.
CMC is changing and we do listen to clients, its been a long time coming guys, expect great things to come.
With our new pricing, improving charting and fast execution with no re-quotes, we hope that many of you will consider looking a little deeper into our new technology.
We do monitor many of these trading forums and are looking to address your comments more regularly.
Good luck with your trading
