Volume Difference Between Standard And Micro Forex Accounts

Forex MetaTrader 4 Order Volume

Many Forex brokers now offer the option to choose between opening a standard lot Forex account and micro Forex account. In standard Forex accounts 1 Lot = 100,000 but in micro Forex accounts 1 Lot = 1000 this means that micro accounts allow you to enter same trades with lower deposits.

This may be confusing for beginner Forex traders especially when making a new order in MetaTrader 4 as there is a difference in the order volume value between micro Forex accounts and standard accounts. This is a very important point to understand before opening a new trade as the volume determines how much you may gain or lose per pip.
