The Plus500 WebTrader platform has proven to be popular mostly in Asia and in Europe, which together account for the majority of retail global Forex trading in both volume and total number of individual clients. The platform began, like most veteran trading software, as a desktop application, but was soon upgraded (in 2009) to include a web-based offering, and then further extended not long afterwards as an app suitable for smartphones and tablets. While web-based trading is attractive for many reasons, traders may find this can create problems deriving from web browser issues, causing slow action, glitches and crashes: applications are generally more reliable if you are using an aging computer, or if your device suffers from Java issues. In terms of ease of use, the platform is quite easy to master, and can be tested in a demo mode to allow for an intuitive grasping of its varied functions.

Plus500 WebTrader Features

The Plus500 platform offers traders the use of their demo account for an unlimited amount of time. This is unusual for Forex brokers who normally limited their demo accounts to 2-3 months.

Both the live account and demo account have real-time streaming quotes and offer leverage of up to 300.

The Plus500 Webtrader allows one-click operations for opening and closing trades, setting stops and entry limits, placing direct orders, setting and editing limit and stop loss, and charting. No downloading is required.

Mobile Applications

Plus500 also offers top quality mobile applications for iPhones, Androids and Windows phones.  Just as the company is constantly upgrading its offerings both on its WebTrader it is also continually working on its mobile applications so that traders will enjoy the best possible trading experience wherever they are.  Videos are also available to help traders understand how to work the platform and to hopefully avoid any potential losses from erroneous use.  As mobile trading becomes more and more popular we are looking forward to watching as Plus500 remains on the cutting edge of this technology.
