On May 15, 2015, shares of Plus500 were trading at 750p – the subsequent bloodletting last week saw shares plunge to a 52-week low of 198p, rescinding the 200p handle for the first time since 2013 on the back end of a trading suspension that further eroded investor confidence. However, the shares have bounced higher to start off a shortened trading week week, which is now threatening the 300p level.
