CMC Markets Robinhood
CMC Markets is headquartered in London and listed on the LSE (FCA Regulated). They offer competitive spreads on a global range of assets via a next generation platform. Robinshood have pioneered mobile trading in the US. Their offer attempts to provide the cheapest share trading anywhere.
We do not recommend trading with Robinhood. Their business practices have harmed traders and their "free" trading offer has been criticized for actually costing their traders millions of dollars.
