Welcome to Pepperstone. How may I help you?
hi, and happy new year! Can Ninja Trader be employed through Pepperstone’s API?
Pepperstone Live7-49-35 PM
I have had to check for you
The technical team believes that connection maybe restricted, even via the API
So in effect no, you wouldn’t be able to use Ninja Trader via Pepperstone’s API
Thank you. Now I’m confused about where you guys are. Is it Australia, NYC or both?
Pepperstone Live7-51-59 PM
We are located in Australia
Our servers are in New York close to the major banks and liquidity providers.
ah! What other instruments do you offer other than Forex?
Pepperstone Live7-53-15 PM
Currently we only specialise in FX
We also offer metals.
But we are essentially a boutique Forex Firm
Nice, I love boutiques. What is your minimum deposit for new accounts?
Pepperstone Live7-54-51 PM
It is US $200 to open an account
After that, you can deposit as much or as little as you like.
I see that your IP is based in the USA
Please be aware that due to CTFC restrictions, we cannot take on US clients, unfortunately.
But if you are there only on holiday and have a passport / proof or residence in another country, we can accept you as a client.
Thank you for noticing. I assumed that your NYC address indicated you did.
I intend moving to Andorra.
Pepperstone Live7-56-51 PM
Once you have proof of residence in Andorra we would indeed be able to take you on as a client.
I would be interested only because I don’t appreciate how the US is regulating its citizens more than the markets. It is painfully obvious to me why that is.
Pepperstone Live7-58-49 PM
Yes, we don’t like it either.
The US market is huge
and US clients are usually very good clients
it’s fine that the banks should be kept on the up and up, but I don’t like giving DNA samples just to open a crummy trading account, when it’s my money.
Pepperstone Live8-00-13 PM
Yes, I can imagine that it is quite frustrating, indeed.
I want to thank you for your due diligence.
Pepperstone Live8-00-35 PM
You are welcome.
I would add, that I sent and e-mail to Martin’s supervisors with a most positive report on his performance.
