Currency Preference

This broker allows its clients to choose from 15 base currencies: USD, GBP, EUR, CHF, AUD, JPY, PLN, HUF, CZK, CAD, TRY, SEK, NOK, ZAR, and SGD. Unlike other CFD brokers, Plus500 supports major currencies and several minor currencies, which is a plus point. 

Once you have selected a base currency, say USD, all deposits made from anywhere in the world are converted and visible in your account in USD. 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.
