What is a Cent account ?

A Cent account is a type of MetaTrader account. On a Cent account, the account is denominated in cents, rather than dollars. What this means is that the trader can trade with smaller trade sizes than a standard account. For example, a standard micro lot (0.01 lots) becomes 0.0001 standard lots.


In 2019, FXTM's awards include Best Trading Experience at the World Finance Awards.

Account opening and minimum deposit

FXTM can open accounts for residents of many countries around the world but not for residents of the USA, Japan, Canada and some other countries. Account currencies available are GBP, EUR, USD and NGN. NGN accounts are only available for clients in Nigeria.

Account opening is swift and takes the trader to a dashboard where the platforms can be accessed. The minimum deposit for the Cent account is $/€/£10 and ₦2000 in global markets and $50 in the EEA. As a Cent account, it is denominated in cents, pence or kobo. Margin call is 80% and stop-out is 50%. There is no maximum deposit.

The smallest trade size is micro lots (0.01). However because the account is denominated in cents, then one micro lot is actually worth 0.0001 standard lots (a cent account allows the broker to provide trade sizes smaller than a standard lot). The maximum trade size per trade is 1 standard lot (i.e 100 Standard Cent lots). However there is a maximum number of orders set at 300, with a total maximum order size of 10 lots.

As an accessible MT4 trading account with a range of features for traders, the Cent account gets a Trader Friendly Grade of A.
