Pepperstone strengthens its multi-asset offering with US share CFDs launch

Leading retail FX broker Pepperstone launches share CFDs with after-market trading on its MT5 platform.

Pepperstone’s US share CFD offering is one of the most unique in the CFD trading industry allowing clients to trade in and out of positions after the main cash session has closed. Given most major company reports are released in the after-market session, Pepperstone’s clients have the ability to take even more positions on the most popular US equities.

Clients can go long or short with share CFDs, enabling not only portfolio diversification but also the ability to greater manage risk, something of particular importance to the ASIC and FCA-regulated broker. With no data fees and competitive low commission, Pepperstone’s US share CFD release expands on the global broker’s breadth of instruments and asset classes, adding to their truly multi-asset offering.

Tamas Szabo, Pepperstone Group CEO comments, “We’ve been refining our equities offering in the background for some time to build seamless infrastructure that will deliver what we believe is a high-quality portfolio of the US stocks that matter most to our clients. Being able to take positions on big names, such as Tesla, Alibaba and Apple offers a real opportunity for our clients. These products enable them to trade the headline in ways they may not have done before.”

“Our focus as a business is to continue to innovate and respond to what our clients want and provide assets that offer our traders the opportunity to access new markets. Share CFDs are an excellent way for our clients to not only diversify their portfolio but also trade in the after-market sessions, which is when most of the action happens with after-hours reporting being the norm.”

Pepperstone’s US share CFD offering follows the extension of market hours on their highly competitive global index CFDs, including the GER30 and US30, which has been well-received by clients, especially those looking for opportunities after the main cash session. Pepperstone clients can enable share CFDs from the market watch section of their MT5 platform.
