CM Trading: a client-centric approach to retail forex trading


Founded in 2012, CM Trading is an online forex broker that promises a local touch to its partners and clients around the world. Adopting innovative strategies, tailor-made for each region, is CM Trading’s modus operandi – positioning itself to equip clients with the tools required to succeed in the financial markets.

The broker, headquartered in South Africa, also has satellite offices in Seychelles while currently establishing inroads into the Middle East market. In fact, CM Trading’s unmatched quality of service in Africa has been recognized with the “Best Performing Broker Africa” award for three consecutive years. This is an impressive achievement which is considered well-deserved acknowledgment of CM Trading’s leading efforts in the region and undoubtedly one of the many reasons it’s crowned as the largest broker in South Africa.

CM Trading provides clients with access to a diverse range of financial instruments including forex, commodities, cryptocurrencies, shares and indices while always remaining vigilant regarding new products that can expand its constantly growing offering. Its goal is to prove that retail trading can be both straightforward and profitable. The only requirement is having a trustworthy broker.

Regulatory compliance and customer support

Being the largest broker in South Africa, CM Trading operates under the strict auspices of the Financial Services Conduct Authority (FSCA) with FSP: 38782 and registration number: 2010/010099/07.

Clients can depend on CM Trading’s transparency and compliance with the FSCA directives regarding account segregation and anti-money laundering practices. All client funds are held separately from the company’s private holdings which guarantee they are always protected in case of insolvency.

“In a challenging industry such as ours, it’s crucial for brokers to remain aligned with the interests of their clients in order to be successful. Regulation and transparency play a big role in all operations of CM Trading and we always strive to offer high-quality customer service and the meaningful support our clients deserve,” says Daniel Kibel, CEO, and co-founder of CM Trading.

Education and responsible trading remain at the forefront of CM Trading’s objectives which also offers daily market commentary on key news and events that clients can utilize to inform their own trading strategy.

Going mobile

With the growing popularity of mobile trading, it’s becoming evident that brokers should aim to provide clients with robust and secure trading platforms and services that boast the same advanced features as their desktop counterparts.

CM Trading, in line with its local philosophy, not only offers clients access to social trading through its CopyKat mobile trading platform, but also provides them with one-on-one coaching in order to guarantee that they receive proper education and accurate information on their trading journey.

CM Trading clients can use the user-friendly but powerful CopyKat mobile platform to automatically copy the trades of more experienced traders or observe and learn from their trading strategy.

Since the broker also offers MT4 accounts, clients can also access their account via the MT4 mobile trading platform by just entering their credentials.

Mobile trading opens up opportunities for traders on the go, but also offers an invaluable tool in market analysis, as well. Traders can open, modify, and close positions even when they are away from their primary trading station and can monitor their performance from anywhere in the world as long as internet connectivity isn’t an issue.


CM Trading has a history of investing in the regions it operates in and recently it has partnered with the Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC) in South Africa. The EFC is an international mixed martial arts organization that holds events throughout the year in South Africa’s biggest fighting arenas and CM Trading aims to help in elevating the championship’s presence across the continent and promote competitive fervor.

Local EFC talent and former welterweight and reigning middleweight champion, Dricus Du Plessis now acts as the official brand ambassador of CM Trading, who will be sponsoring his fights in the EFC.

In its efforts to investing in the local community, the broker has also recently teamed up with Elton Jantjies, a South African rugby union player who plays for the South African national team, the Springboks.

Both Dricus Du Plessis and Elton Jantjies share the same standards of excellence and passion for success, and CM Trading is committed to supporting local talent to achieve their ambitions.

CM Trading’s partnership with local organizations and athletes in the region is a commendable initiative that helps differentiate the broker from the rest of the pack and the broker is keen on maintaining client interest by offering flight and VIP tickets at the events, as well as one-on-one meetings with the champions.
