Currency Preference

This broker allows its clients to choose from 9 base currencies: AUD, USD, SGD, HKD, JPY, NZD, EUR, CHF, and GBP. Once you have selected a base currency, say AUD, all deposits made from anywhere in the world are converted and visible in your account in AUD. 

The conversion rate from your local currency to your account’s base currency applies while depositing, so keeping an eye on the conversion rate might help you calculate how much local currency is required for a deposit in your Pepperstone account’s base currency.
