Average inactivity fee, no withdrawal fee

Plus500 charges no withdrawal, account or deposit fees.
On the other hand, there is an inactivity fee of $10 per quarter after 3 months of inactivity. However, you can get around having to pay the inactivity fee if you simply log in to the platform. At some other brokers, you have to trade in order to not be charged an inactivity fee, logging in is not enough.
