Plus500 continues momentum into Q2 2020

Although coronavirus might be causing a lot of other industries, and the world in general, to slow down, it appears to be full steam ahead at Plus500. In a trading update published by the broker on Tuesday, the firm revealed that it continues to see a significantly increased level of customer trading activity.

“Performance across all financial and operational KPIs remains very strong, with the Group continuing to attract significant numbers of new customers at an attractive cost, and increased levels of activity from existing customers,” the company said today in the statement.

Furthermore, the Israel based broker said that following the strong performance achieved in the first quarter of 2020, it is seeing continuing momentum in the second quarter, with strong gains from customer trading performance, which is expected to be neutral over time.
