Micro Account Forex Brokers


A standard contract size in forex is a lot – 100,000 currency units; however, more and more brokers are allowing traders the possibility to trade smaller contracts – most often mini lots of 10,000 units, or micro lots of 1,000 units (some brokerages even offer nano lot trading). These smaller contract sizes allow traders to be a lot more flexible in their trading, and diversify their trading portfolios by allocating smaller amounts of money to more currency pairs for example. 


Micro lot trading is particularly useful for beginners and for traders who would like to try out the services of a broker without risking too much money. Combined with a higher leverage, it requires traders to make a small initial deposit and test their skills or the broker with a limited risk. 


Below is a list of brokers that offer micro accounts. 


ECN micro accounts MT4 micro account Paypal micro accounts
Fixed spread micro accounts
