Does the MetaTrader platform facilitate mini lot (10K) trading?
Yes you can trade mini lots (10K) using the MetaTrader platform.
Here is the scale that we use for trading lot sizes on MetaTrader:
0.01 lots = 1,000 units of base currency (or dollars) Our "micro" lot size.
0.10 lots = 10,000 units of base currency (or dollars) Our "mini" lot size.
1.00 lots = 100,000 units of base currency (or dollars) Our "standard" lot size.
**Please note that trading in lot sizes that are not shown in the scale above is possible. An example would be an open a lot position of 0.60 (60,000 units), an 8.00 lot position (800,000 units), and even a 3.20 lot position (320,000 units). Please email us with any scale questions: email@example.com
**Also, note that other brokers may use a different scale to trade certain size lots. For instance, another broker may show 1.00 lots on a mini account is 10,000 units
