Pepperstone, an Australian forex and CFDs broker, has expanded the range of its offerings by adding share CFDs from global markets, specifically with the shares of the United Kingdom, Germany and Australian companies.
Announced on Tuesday, the new shares will complement the many existing US-listed stocks already available on the brokerage platform. They will be added to the MetaTrader 5 trading platform as the broker counts the flexibility and reliability of the third-party platform.
“With global interest and volatility around equities at an all-time high, it was very important for us to deliver the products our clients have been asking for,” Tamas Szabo, Chief Executive Officer at Pepperstone Group, said in a statement.

“The new range of equities in MetaTrader 5 provides a faster and more efficient way for our clients to trade in world’s markets.”
A Global Broker
With headquarters in Australia, Pepperstone has a global presence. The broker secured regulatory licenses in Dubai, Kenya, Germany and Cyprus last year and also opened local offices in all-new jurisdictions. Apart from that, it is regulated in the United Kingdom and the Bahamas.
In addition to its stock CFDs, the broker offers trading instruments with forex, indices, commodities, cryptocurrencies and currency indices. Moreover, it is one of the few brokers that offers pre and post-market trading of US shares.
Finance Magnates recently reported that Pepperstone updated trading conditions and will require a margin of up to 50 percent of the hedged positions on any instruments. These conditions will apply to MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platforms, meaning the newly added stocks will fall under the updated requirements.
