Pepperstone Minimum Deposit
The minimum deposit amount to trade with Pepperstone is AUD$200, but clients can choose to deposit less than this if they wish. Please note that some of Pepperstone's products and services may not be available for trading if the account balance falls below the required margin.
However, before you sign up and start trading, there is a Pepperstone Demo Account that you can use to test out the platforms and try your hand at trading with virtual money. This is a great way to get started without having to make a deposit.
When you are opening an account at Pepperstone, there are a few same factors you should keep in mind aside from the minimum deposit.
For starters, you should consider what type of account you want to open. Pepperstone offers three different types of accounts: the Standard Account, the Razor Account, and the Swap-free Account.
The main difference between these accounts is the spreads that are offered. The Standard Account has a spread starting from 1.0 pips, while the Razor Account has a spread starting from 0.0 pips. The Swap-Free account is designed for traders who wish to trade without incurring overnight swap charges.
Besides the account type, you will also need to choose a platform to trade on. Pepperstone clients can choose from MetaTrader 4 (MT4), MetaTrader 5 (MT5), and cTrader, among others.
In addition, the majority of retail investor accounts (74-89%) experience losses when trading CFDs. You should carefully consider if you can handle the high risk that comes with losing your money before investing.
