Traders need high capital to trade with 100 lot. It is also extremely risky.

If you have enough money to trade and have a proper risk reward ratio in terms of return, then go ahead.

High lots trading can be risky. If you have just started trading, stick to 100 lots. Once you will be able to fill up that frequently, you can level up your lots.

You are doing it right. Starting off with 100 lots is a better way in order to take low risks. In micro accounts, trading volume is low and some brokers give you no or minimum deposits and don’t even charge for deposits. I know the profits might be low but it’s good to keep it slow, rather than running fast and losing.

Consider trying that out in demo trading and see it feels for you. You will get your answer there.

Trade in micro lots if you are a beginner and serious about trading. It lets you keep your position sizes smaller to fine tune risk on your small account.

The thing that matters is making yourself familiar with different order types when trading any significant position size. In some cases, you may also get to attach a slippage control to the market order.

To trade with 100 lots, you will need to invest a big amount. As a beginner, I don’t think you must be doing that. Think before you make your investment.

It is very important to have a positive trading mindset. A lot of education is needed to develop trading skills. It is never possible to make a trading profit without education.

The choice of the lot size depends on your investments. As a day trader, it may take some months and as a swing trader, you will take around two years while taking care of risk management to trade 100 lots.

If your investment is good, lot selection will be based on that investment. If you do not follow money management, you will not be able to trade properly.

When you are using a tool like a risk management calculator or something similar with the desired output, it gets easier for you to determine the best lot size based on your current trading account assets. Whether you are on your demo account or trading live, you will get to understand the amount you would like to risk.

As long as you know what you are doing, there is nothing to be worried about. The order gets filled quickly without much change in the price.

I am not sure how much you are risking per trade. In order to determine the right lot size, you will be required to determine your risk in percentage. Talking about my previous trades with turnkeyforex and fxtm, I follow the 1% rule. In case a trade closes out for a loss, no more than 1% of my account balance is at risk.

I’m not a risk taker and always find trading comfortable when there’s a decent balance between the capital I invest and the risk I’m willing to take.

Does position size have anything to do with the number of lots and making the trade profitable?

If you are a new trader then You are taking a lot of risk, first try a demo if you feel that you won’t lose then go for live trading.

I think a micro account can really save you from losses. I usually test my strategies through them. The capital requirement is low with them and right now I’m dealing with two $250 and $300 mini accounts.

Yeah with micro lots it is also easier to go with risk management. Can’t say it is that simple with a standard lot. As for me, I too prefer micro accounts and trust me they can get a bit tricky at times. But the risk is definitely lower so it works out. I have micro accounts with Fxtm and Fp markets at the moment.
I find micro accounts pretty interesting too. They sure set up a real trading environment but with a lot less money. It’s kind of fun to trade micro. I don’t go very high with the leverage so that doesn’t increase my risk so much. As for brokers, I have just opened some micro accounts with Instaforex and Turnkeyforex. Just trying my luck with them and see if these micro accounts can help me with profitable trading as well. Much better than demos I think.
