Louise says: “Chris Tate and I always suggest our traders have accounts open with two brokers. It’s the way professional traders approach trading. (Plus, you’ll qualify for our Kick-Start Trading Pack of free resources when you open a live account with either of the brokers below – so keep reading to hear more).

Here are our favourite two brokers…”

Chris Tate and Louise Bedford with Craig Thiessen, their CMC broker friend.

Chris and I have been friends with Craig Thiessen since the beginning of the century, and now that he’s moved to CMC, we’re very excited to recommend his services. He’s made company-wide changes to make sure every trader we send to him is looked after.

If you need to get in touch with Craig directly so he can ease you through the process, his email is C.Thiessen@cmcmarkets.com.

Craig cares about our traders so much that he’s allowed us to give you his personal mobile phone number. It is: 0409 864503.
