Plus 500 Trading Platforms

The Plus 500 trading platforms are all proprietary. Since the men who founded the company were all highly trained in technology, they were able to develop a great system. Originally, the system was only PC based, but now, Plus 500 offers traders a choice with:

  • Web Trader which allows you to trade without a download.
  • Windows Trader which was the first design.
  • Windows 10 Trader which has been developed for the more sophisticated Windows systems.

And Plus 500 knows that many traders are now using mobile devices to trade. So they have…

  • The Windows phone app
  • An Android app
  • and an iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch app.

So there is a way you can trade no matter the system you use. The system shows both past trades and current positions and comes with various charts and graphs to help you determine the best trades. Also, Plus 500 does offer traders the use of a demo account to get adjusted to the trading system.

Plus 500 Summary

Overall, Plus 500 is a well known and trusted CFD broker. There have been some past issues when in 2015, the FCA froze all United Kingdom accounts for a period of 2 months to check on money laundering activities. This dropped the Plus 500 stock prices drastically, but the company has rebounded from that set back. The fact that Plus 500 is licensed and regulated by so many entities tells us this is a safe and reliable CFD broker.

Plus500 does have great customer support and a lot of assets for speculation.
Plus500 is a middle eastern Market Maker brokerage. I'd choose another broker.

Plus500 offers no commission trading, is that too good to be true?
Plus500 does not allow American traders and they are reputed to take the other side of their clients trades.
