Is there a way to have Cent accounts showing up properly?
I don't know how a Cent account statement is presented but surely AccountBalance() will show the actual amount of money?
With the new system of polling data, can this is obtained?

Consistency above all.

AccountBalance() will show balance as it displays (so in a cent account it will show the balance in cents and there is no way to tell they are cents and not dollars). However different brokers usually assign cent/real accounts to different servers so it is a simple matter of myFXBook recording which servers are real Vs which servers are cent in order to label accounts appropriately. I think this would be a fine addition although further verification would be needed to confirm that brokers do not manage both account types on the same server.

That's a good idea and appears to be fairly straightforward to implement, what with demo and live servers already being distinguishable.

Consistency above all.
