Pepperstone was established in 2010 in Melbourne. Since then it has become a significant player on the online brokerage business, earning over $ 100 billion a month. In 2016, Pepperstone pulled a strategic investment from CHAMP Private Equity, one of the leading investment companies in Australia.
Pepperstone mainly offers a set of MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platforms from MetaQuotes Software Corporation, as well as a range of platforms from Spotware Systems: cTrader, cAlgo, and mirror.
Also, they offer additional third-party platforms for the commercial sale of electronic copies of companies to complement the market for signals available by default on the MT4 and mirror platforms. Companies such as ZuluTrade, Tradency, and Myfxbook are a part of this initiative.
In addition to platforms, Pepperstone supports CFD trading on Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Dash. This, in turn, satisfies the growing interest in investing in cryptocurrency.
Pepperstone regulates from Australia and the United Kingdom. It has also offices in the United States (USA), UK (UK), China and Thailand. However, Pepperstone offers several dozen CFDs for major indices covering commodities such as energy and precious metals, as well as nearly 60 currency pairs.
Pepperstone offers two pricing models depending on the type of account you open from the Razor commission to the standard report, which includes commissions in the most popular spreads. Fees may vary slightly depending on the platform you have chosen to trade.
Pepperstone offers a wide range of options in its price plan. The Razor Account is the obvious choice for cost-sensitive merchants. Besides, their active sales program offers additional discounts on applicable commission rates. They offer these discounts based on the amount of the deposit and expected turnover. It helps to increase the position in this category among forex brokers that support active investors.
