Nano lots would be so hard to find with any broker, mostly with what i've seen with fxview or ICM or fxpro they have micro lots. Better go for 0.01 lot and low leverage, you won't get more than 30x with regulated ones either way.

I have traded on micro lot few times in the past, but not with the kind of returns as I had anticipitated. Got suggested on using nano lots instead but couldn't find a broker that offers that trade size. So I am here!

Guys, if you have a specific amount of risk per trade, account leverage doesn't matter much unless you plan to open a lot of trades that would lower your margin % that might lead to reaching a stopout level. Let's say on a trade, you plan to lose 100 dollars with a 50-pip stoploss, regardless if your leverage is 1:1, 1:10, 1:100, or even 1:3000, your risked amount would still remain the same which is 100 dollars. Given you have the correct position sizing.
Open a cent account. My broker, RoboForex, has one. I think other brokers offer cent accounts too. I think cent account's 1 lot size is 0.01 on a standard account. And you can go lower like 0.01 lot on cent account depending on the broker you choose.
HIGH RISK WARNING: Foreign exchange trading carries a high level of risk that may not be suitable for all investors.
Leverage creates additional risk and loss exposure. Before you decide to trade foreign exchange, carefully consider your investment objectives, experience level, and risk tolerance.
You could lose some or all of your initial investment. Do not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Educate yourself on the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial or tax advisor if you have any questions.
