Rick Steves

Integral has recently launched CFD Prime, a centrally cleared platform for contracts for differences that reduces transacting costs and offers direct access to leading CFD market makers through a single credit and technology relationship.

CMC Markets Connect has announced a distribution agreement with Integral, the renowned provider of cloud-based eFX workflow solutions.

The partnership will give Integral clients access to pricing and execution of CMC Markets’ thousands of trading instruments, covering Spot FX and Indices, Treasuries and Commodity CFDs including over 12,000 CFDs of single stocks and ETFs.

Richard Elston, Group Head of Institutional at CMC Markets Connect, said: “The partnership with Integral is the latest step in our mission to continue extending our institutional reach. By leveraging the network of a recognized industry leader, we’re making our pricing and liquidity available to an even wider audience, whilst our single stock CFD offering truly strengthens the wider Integral offering.”

Harpal Sandhu, Chief Executive Officer of Integral, commented: “By continuing to include more high-quality liquidity providers in the network, we ensure that our clients are consistently receiving a quality service across all market conditions. Our recently launched CFD Prime service is the latest innovation improving the trading experiences of our clients.”

Exposure to equities in 23 global markets

Contracts for differences (CFDs) have become an industry favorite for their flexibility, allowing traders to gain long or short exposure to all kinds of assets, including single stocks.

Integral has recently launched CFD Prime, a centrally cleared platform for contracts for differences that reduces transacting costs and offers direct access to leading CFD market makers through a single credit and technology relationship.

As Integral clients gain access to pricing and execution from CMC Markets’ offering, traders may get a chance to optimize decisions and increase profits. The retail and institutional FX and CFD broker offers exposure to equities on 23 global markets.

CMC Markets is regulated in multiple jurisdictions, under the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK, the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) in Australia, and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) in Singapore.

Integral’s CFD prime features FXCM Pro and Jump Trading

Integral’s centrally cleared platform for contracts for difference (CFDs) welcomed the participation of FXCM Pro’s prime brokerage services and Jump Trading’s liquidity, among other market makers.

The initiative enables investors in the wholesale markets to benefit from significantly reduced risks in the settlement of CFDs transactions.

Integral’s CFD platform includes consolidated margin, account opening, and netting, resulting in reduced transacting costs. This actually catches up with a major shift occurring in the market demand for SDP platforms driven by customers’ need for asset class diversification, post-trade support, research and market data.

The partnership taps into Integral’s pricing engine infrastructure to facilitate trading in standardized CFD products including major indices, commodities and cryptocurrencies.
