Plus500 is definitely not what one would call one of the biggest names in online trading, however through sheer perseverance and aggressive advertising and offers as well as a good amount of technical ingenuity, Plus500 has managed to create a package of trading platforms that offer investors the opportunity to easily trade forex, stocks, indices, commodities and ETFs from one simple and intuitive yet sophisticated platform.
Plus500 has also made a name for itself with its aggressive offers to new traders including free no deposit bonuses of up to $50 and deposit bonuses of over 30% – offers that are almost impossible to find anywhere else online.
This well-established brokerage offers investors two proprietary platforms to choose from when trading: Windows Trader is a downloadable application for PC users and WebTrader is an online platform fit for those using Mac computers as well as mobile traders using iPhones.
The first thing that one notices when using the Plus500 WebTrader is its ease-of use. All financial assets are categorized in a effective manner on the left sidebar and you can easily browse through them to locate the asset that most interests you.
After selecting the assets you would like to invest in, the WebTrader platform offers advanced charts across the bottom to map out these assets’ trading histories at whatever resolution one would like.
When looking at the financial charts, one can also easily select to add a variety of financial indicators to the graphs by simply clicking the f(x) button and adding those indicators which you desire.
After you’ve decided what you’d like to invest in and when, the process of purchasing or selling your desired asset is very straightforward. One can easily add Trailing Stop and Entry Limit orders as well.
