Pepperstone Discussion

Thank-you for the replies and explanation.

I am deciding between Pepperstone Razor and Hotforex to go live with and using Aslan as the Intoroducing Broker seems to offer the best returns with Pepperstone.

However I got a PM from someone that was doing well on Pepperstone demo but now their EA is not closing trades as it should and also I just read this thread this morning where there appears to be debate as to whether they are a bucket shop or not.

I just want to find an honest broker who is happy to earn off the spread and nothing else.

Hi sharpforex I am in England but wishing I was in Melbourne :) the lifestyle looks great there.

I'm with Pepperstone for couple of months now. So far everything is good, their support and back office support also friendly. At first I'm using standard account, but then I've changed it to razor account.

If you want better connection between your MT4 terminal and their MT4 server, then choose VPS that located in US as far as I know they've changed their server location to US. I did this and my EA working smoothly on communicating for enter and exit trades with pepperstone server.

😄

And the additional feature that I like and hope it'll get more better in the future is their blackberry app. The app is nice, it has chart, your favorite pairs, and have the basic trading features. They only thing on this app that little disappoint me is when you are using BIS (blackberry internet service) to get connected to their server, you will unable to do that as you'll get an error message. But will get connected perfectly when you are within WiFi range.

Their performance is getting worse. When news with high volatility expectancy is coming, the execution time is getting worse, and sometimes the platform got froze out. Hope they could do something on their infrastructure.

I chose Pepperstone because of MDP. They had some technical issues, but their customer support was professional enough to accept what was happening and gave me a prompt refund. I hope this does not happen again and I’ll be watching.

Besides these sporadic tech issues, my Pepperstone account is up. MDP is doing really well with Pepperstone compared to other brokers.

I chose Pepperstone because of their Aussie regulation and they are close to Singapore. I haven't had any tech issues because I don't use lousy EA's like MDP which rely on spikes for execution, which IMHO is recipe for failure. I had a friend program an EA for me and so far the EA is making money with Pepperstone Razor account. Can't speak for the standard account. 😄😄

Good Borker!😄
Since Oct. 2011, I'm trading on Pepperstone. The spreads are very low, orders are executed very fast, so scalping EAs are doing well. But sometimes the connection to their server bocomes disconnected.😕

I've been using Pepperstone since I gave Think Forex the boot last month. I've noticed that their platform disconnects a few times each day, generally for about 3-4 minutes. They say one of them is for End of Day - so that's fair enough, but the others?

Anyone else seeing problems with them?

hi, what is this MDP you are talking about ? and what was the reason you got refund from Pepperstone ?

Manage your risk and DD well and your account will grow.

The platform is supposed to open Sunday night at 10PM GMT but is often late to get started.

This Sunday night it was 10:45 P.M before they put the 50p in the meter so was getting the 'off quote' message when trying to open positions.
