Buy and Sell CFDs on Mobile 

The Plus500 App offers a user-friendly, intuitive platform for traders to buy and sell CFDs on all of the aforementioned financial instruments. Traders can monitor the price movements of each of these financial instruments in real-time, with trader sentiments indicating the percentage of buyers and sellers for individual assets, live statistics on pricing over 5 minutes, 60 minutes, or one day, high/low prices, and other important pricing information. Each of the real-time charts is provided to traders free of charge, with 24/7 professional support at the ready. With stocks, traders can get stock market quotes and indexes which are all displayed under Plus500 quotes. With crypto CFDs, leverage of 1:2 is available with trades beginning as little as £100 able to enjoy £200 worth of capital.

With cryptocurrency CFDs, traders have many benefits over traditional crypto purchases, notably no special wallets or exchange accounts are needed. With CFDs, traders are simply purchasing a contract that facilitates the buying or selling of crypto CFDs. Additional protections are afforded in the form of trailing stops and stop-loss orders, to mitigate risks with these volatile financial instruments. Since crypto CFDs trade 24/7, registered clients needn’t be concerned about weekend interruptions of trading activity. It is important to point out that with CFD trading on any of the financial instruments at Plus500, no ownership rights of assets are conferred at any point. The CFDs simply mirror the price movements of the underlying assets as contracts, which can be bought or sold. Plus500 offers full trading features in demo mode on all of these underlying assets, with the option to switch to real money mode at any time.
