Pepperstone is a scam broker I withdraw money with them on the 29th April and my bank returned it back to them on the 2nd May up to today they have not added my money into my account but they said it will appear between 3-5 business days they want me to pay them 20GBP in order for them to trace where my money is .

Hello Lazola,

We understand how frustrating it must be not receiving your withdrawals as expected, particularly when you were unsure why this was the case.

We’ve investigated this for you and found this case, we found it was caused by the accepting bank rejecting the transfer.

Unfortunately, when that happens, the money can take some time in making its way back to us. It’s a lot slower than a normal direct deposit and it’s not something we can control either, The good news is the rejected funds reached our account on the 20th May 2019. .

You’ll need to check with your bank as to why they rejected this withdrawal, however it might be worth exploring other funding and withdrawal options, such as PayPal. PayPal is a free option and you can be sure any funds will reach your account in the same day.

Happy this matter was resolved.

We hope this has helped your query and thank you again for getting in touch. If there’s anything else we can help you with, please let us know.

They ask me to deposit....

Another deception from Pepperstone so i change the rating for the last time after a deposit to reset the negative balance they surprise me with this email
''Hi Fouad,

Thank you for your patience. I have asked my operations team to review this matter. We have decided once you make a deposit of $1,000 or more we will waive the $236.68 negative balance on your account. Please note this is a one-time goodwill gesture and will not be applicable in the future.

If there is something further we can help you with please do not hesitate to let us know. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Pepperstone Support''

''Dear Fouad,

Thank you for contacting us.

Our team has looked over your recent trades on your live account 942656, and the management team is willing to waive the negative balance -846.77 on your account if you deposit $846.77 or above.

Once these funds are deposited in your account, please email support@pepperstone.com and someone will waive the negative balance amount of $846.77 - this way your deposit is reflected in full.

Kind regards,

Pepperstone Support''

i'm really surprised that they ask me to deposit money to resolve the issue .
it's the first time i have a problem with Pepperstone and eventually i will never deposit to cover their loss (every one can lose money me or you).
i will never trade on Pepperstone except if they do negative balance protection.

Hi Fouadzizou

I wasn’t able to locate your specific account to reply to this review. Are you please able to email me at support@pepperstone.com so I can help you out?

We’re committed to being fair with our clients, including waiving negative balances when appropriate. Our traders really are the core of our business.

We understand the majority of negative balances are due to clients being unlucky with a news release or fast-moving market. It happens.

We feel it’s a fair compromise to offer clients the ability to have their negative waived if they deposit the same amount to continue trading. We also encourage our clients to explore our risk management resources or get in touch with us so we can help you better manage things like your position sizing, especially during volatility.

Do not trust Pepperstone. They would love to blow your account.

They just blow your account without stop out. I lost 33000 USD on a single trade, but my account balance is only 16000 USD. What a joke. They just want all of your deposit.

May 7, 2019 - 1 Star On 7th May, my account was blown due to AUD news release. Pepperstone just let the balance go negative without activate stop out level. There was a nearly 800 pts slippage in my trade, shame on them.

Hello, I can’t seem to find your account with this information. If you can please email us at support@pepperstone.com we’ll be able to review your trades.

Slippage is a tough one but it’s important to note you will receive both positive and negative slippage. We can help you understand how much of each you have received if you email our support team with this request.

But I get it. 80 pips seems high.

This was related to the RBA rates announcement. The market largely priced in a 25 basis point drop and we got...no change! Lets hope Jerome Powell provides some better forward guidance next time.

We offer industry leading execution times - sometimes between 20 - 40ms when some of our competitors offer 200-300ms. But even our execution speeds can’t get you prices that aren’t available in the market.

News events are full of uncertainty and can lead to slippage, both positive and negative, around fast moving markets. This challenge is faced by every forex trader in the market, not just our clients.

So respectfully, Pepperstone didn’t blow up your account. It was due to an RBA release, not dropping rates, and how global traders reacted after this information was released.

If you’re interested in how you can better manage your position, especially during times where markets are more prone to volatility, we can help you. Drop us a line and we’ll help you with some cool risk management tools like smart lines and helpful videos. Next time, you’ll be ready.

Delayed refund!!!!

Funded my account with 100$ and verification was not processed and therefore requested for a refund and no response! Wrote the support numerous mails and made calls to the customer care and no response i continually get automated messages and no one has gotten back to me!!!

Hi Kipngetich

Not getting your funds asap can be really frustrating. So were sorry to see you faced a 1 week delay.

To clarify what happened, you requested a withdrawal and before we had a chance to process it, you launched a dispute with PayPal (within hours of the withdrawal being requested). Given this, we couldn’t proceed with the withdrawal until PayPal resolved the complaint.

Pepperstone understand that when clients fund with us, they are trusting us with their money. We take this seriously and don’t hold onto funds unless absolutely necessary.

Thanks for canceling this dispute with PayPal, which enabled us to refund you the deposit.

This is an illegal thing to do...

I set my Ea to run a NZDCAD trade on the 1st may due to the news event but pepperstone had closed my trade on stoploss, which was basically impossible because the current candle and previous candles had never been to that price range. This is the conclusion I've drawn up: The trail stoploss would have activated in profit.

Pepperstone not trustworthy

Pepperstone is not trustworthy broker on 30-04-19 my GBPJPY trade was closed and there support team informed me it was technical error and amount will be adjusted.
After 48 hours they adjusted my account but deducted 20% amount saying that before spike trade was closed even though ihad enough balance.
Instead of accommodating they are ripping off.
I believe they did it deliberately.

May 1, 2019 - 2 Stars On 30th May 2019 GBPJPY went down from 144 to 139, i had open trade GBPJPY account went zero when i asked pepperstone got reply "we are sorry it was technical issue". and doesn't know when amount will be adjusted.
Even now if they refund money what about my two days and the trade which was open now it GBPJPY is 145.60.
It's Scam i have been trading with them more than a year, earlier i thought there might be technical issue but every year.
And this is not first time last year they had spread issue promised to refund money but never did it was $15 i ignored.

Block out access to your account for a few hours and withheld profits

Traded with pepperstone for 3 months and was promoted to the high tier premium trader league. Felt good to have the high rebates so transfer 140k SGD into the account. Traded in 200 lots of USD and suddenly lost connection to the account while all other apps and other computers were working normally. Tried asking pepperstone and they ignored. After a few hours log in everything was gone. By right there should be a profit of 200k. Trade with them at your own risk
