Trading can actually be very simple. You choose the medium you want to use for learning, and then get on with a demo account to practice what you’ve learned. The next step is the live market, for which micro accounts given by so many brokers like ic markets, fxtm, fxview, octafx, etc make perfect sense. So ya, using a micro lot is not really a choice, but a done thing if you want to be a successful trader. Bypass it at your own financial risk!
