If it would also be considered when picking brokers, if the broker offers cent or micro account, it means that they're a market maker for sure. Since no liquidity providers accept below 100,000 units of trades.

Will surely try it out on demo acounts of brokers that offer this, I'm open to new strategies.

That’s nano lots. XM and exness offer variable trade size. Worth checking out for their leverage too. Although 2000:1 offered by exness might be a bit much for starters. Reason I have been mostly sticking with XM all these years is their execution. None of my orders have ever been refused and max orders get filled in less than a second. This wasn’t the case with the broker I started out with, so not sure if most brokers are this real time.
XM is good. XM is my very first broker. What they say is true that no requotes. Though I blew a few accounts with them due to my own mistakes as a newbie. I switched to RoboForex because of the free VPS and good profit share bonus. When I get more capital to open a new account, I will open an account with XM again.
