Key advantages to trading with Micro Lots are:
Ability to reduce your deposit/margin requirement

Below is a table of FX descriptions for lot sizes:

Micro Lots 1,000
Mini Lots 10,000
Standard Lots 100,000

We encourage our clients to practice their trading strategies with smaller lot sizes to sharpen their trading skills within a live environment.

Trading psychology differs greatly when using 'live' real funds rather than demonstration accounts. It is in this environment that true learning and confidence is gained.
