Trading Conditions

Posted on: 26 May 2016 , by: Marlon Peiris , category: About Trading

What are your trading conditions? 

Pepperstone’s trading conditions are widely regarded as well above the industry standard. We place a very strong emphasis on competitive spreads and commission charges. For example on our Razor ECN account, clients will often see a 0.0 pip spread on EURUSD. Our trading commissions are a competitive $7 AUD per one lot traded, round trip.

We offer clients the option of multiple trading platforms (cTrader, MT4 and WebTrader) on multiple devices (such as PC, Mac and mobile devices) to make trading easier and more accessible. Clients can chose between our EDGE Razor Account and EDGE Standard Account. 

What are your spreads?

Pepperstone provides clients access to raw institutional spreads via our ECN Razor accounts. It is not uncommon to see major currency pairs such as EURUSD at a 0.0 pip spread. Our Standard Account spreads are approximately 1 pip wider than the Razor account, but there are no commission charges on Standard Accounts – this is factored into the spread. 

What is your commission charge?

Our commission charges are $7 AUD per one lot traded, round trip. 

What is the difference between Standard and Razor accounts

Our EDGE Razor and EDGE Standard accounts are ECN/STP and they are connected to some of the world’s big liquidity providers to fill orders. The Razor account offers tighter spreads with a commission charge on based on your trade size. This account is popular with scalpers. Our standard has a slightly wider spread and no other charges meaning it is popular for those wanting a more simple account and beginners.
