Plus500 review

Web: www.plus500.com

Plus 500 is one of the rare brokers listed on the London Stock Exchange. The enrollment in the Stock Exchange is a strong sign of their improved long term strategy of being a more open and trustful company as they have had issues with compliance in the past. When a company gets listed on a Stock Exchange market it makes it very sensitive to any unpleasant information as it can drop its share value significantly so their number one priority is customer satisfaction because without it there would be no profits to satisfy the shareholders. Plus 500 is a CFD Service. Plus500 is more suitable for experienced traders than beginners. Plus500UK LTD is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Plus500 proprietary trading platform is clean, intuitive and easy to use for novice traders. The platform is available in multiple environments: as a desktop program, a web trader and also mobile application for iPhone, iPad, Android and other devices.
