From what I know, trading big lot size with little capital is definitely very risky. It takes just a little drawdown to wipe out your forex trading account. But when you have a big trading capital, trading a big lot can get you good profits even with little price movements.
Use lot size in accordance with the equity in your account. Make sure that you keep margin calls in mind. When you trade a small lot size, you can use a cut loss strategy but with larger lots, you have the risk of a big loss.
While trading, focusing on risk management is quite essential otherwise you can make your account zero immediately. Somewhere, trading larger lots shows the greed of a trader. It might look attractive but bites in the end. Better be careful about the decisions you make.
If you have experience in trading micro and mini lots, you can use the standard lot. But 100 lots is a big number according to me. Try your system on the micro account first and see whether it is worth increasing your lot size or not.
As you have asked it here, you will get answers one way or the other. But it’s how it worked for others. I suggest first test different trade entry methods with a backtesting program and forward test your system in live market conditions. For both of these, use your demo account and not the real money account.
