500 is enough to trade stocks

Our fees and charges

Buy / sell spreads

Plus500 uses the buy / sell (bid / ask) spread (click here to find out more), so when you open a position you are essentially "paying" the spread. This spread is integrated into the prices quoted by Plus500 and is not an additional fee or levy that you have to pay in addition to the prices quoted.

To see the spread for a specific instrument:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Look for a specific instrument.
  3. Click the Details icon (i) and scroll down to the About section.

Additional fees

The following fees will be applied to your account based on your trading activity:

Overnight financing

Overnight Funding is either added to or deducted from your Account when a position is held after a certain amount of time (known as the "Overnight Funding Period"). You can find out more about it here.

Currency conversion fee

Plus500 will charge a currency conversion fee on all trades in instruments traded in a currency other than that of your account. The currency conversion fee is reflected in real time in the unrealized profit or loss of an open position. More information can be found here.

Guaranteed stop order

A unique order type that is used to help you minimize the risks by guaranteeing the stop loss level. If you choose this feature, please note that it has a larger spread as your position will be closed at a certain desired rate. You can find out more about it here.

Inactivity Fee

Are there any trading fees with Plus500?

Plus500 is largely compensated for its services by "market spreads". For example, if EUR / USD was trading and the buy rate was 1.3128, then the sell rate would be 1.3126 (which in this example means a market spread of 2 pips). In contrast to other service providers who also charge commissions for every trade, Plus500 does not charge any commissions.

However, the following additional fees may apply:

Overnight financing - The Overnight Funding Amount will either be added to or deducted from your Account if you hold a position after a certain amount of time (the “Overnight Funding Period”).
The overnight funding time and daily overnight funding percentage can be found in the link

Currency conversion fee - Plus500 will charge a currency conversion fee on all trades in instruments traded in a currency other than that of your account.
The currency conversion fee currently reaches up to 0.7% of the realized profit or loss of a trade and is reflected in real time in the unrealized profit or loss of an open position.

Inactivity Fee - A fee of up to USD 10 will be charged if you fail to log into your trading account for at least three months. This fee will be charged monthly from this point onwards, as long as there is no login to the account. The inactivity fee is equal to the lesser of the remaining balance in your account or $ 10 (or its equivalent, depending on your currency). These are the costs of ensuring and providing the service that arise even if it has not been used. Please note that the fee is only collected from the real money account and only if there are sufficient funds available in the account. To avoid this fee, simply log into your trading account from time to time as this is considered a sufficient activity to prevent a fee from being charged.

Guaranteed stop order - If you select this feature, please note that while it ensures that your position (trade) closes at a certain requested rate (price), the trade is subject to a wider spread. For more information, please refer to the FAQ “Trading” → “What is a“ Guaranteed Stop Order ”?”

Does Plus500 have an "overnight charge"?

The Overnight Funding amount will either be added to or deducted from your account if a position is left open after a certain cut-off time (the “Overnight Funding Time”).

The formula used to calculate the daily overnight funding amount for a position is:

Trading volume * Opening price * Point value * Daily overnight funding%

When trading stock CFDs, the formula is:
Trading volume * Daily closing price * Point value * Daily overnight funding%, whereby the daily closing price is the average [(buy + sell) / 2] of the last price 30 minutes before the time of the overnight financing (e.g. if the time of the overnight financing is 10:00 p.m., we take the last price or reverse it 9:30 p.m.).

The Overnight Financing Time and Daily Overnight Financing Percentage can be found on the "Details" link next to the instrument name on the main trading platform screen. For more information on fees, please see “Do you have any trading fees?”
