CMC Markets Stockbroking, the Australian brokerage unit of CMC Markets, announced on Monday that it has expanded the offering on its platform. By launching International share trading and Exchange Trade Options (ETO) features on its platform, investors now have access to international markets including US, Europe, Canada, and Asia.
With the addition of the international share trading feature, investors can now trade an extra 19,000 instruments through the broker. The new instruments include Equities, International ETFs, and American depository receipts.
