Plus500 trading platform
The WebTrader trading platform developed by Plus500 represents a compromise between a user-friendly interface and professional trading functions. WebTrader makes it easy to place and track trades and has powerful built-in technical analysis tools. One distinctive feature of the platform is the absence of access to the well-known platform – MetaTrader 4 (MT4). This reduces functionality and customization for professional clients.
WebTrader can be accessed from a web browser as well as from mobile devices. The platform does not support API, which makes it impossible to use third-party programs for analysis and trade automation. Automatic trading is not available on the platform.
