Emicros your answer for tiny risk on FX and USA market index

(Last Updated On: November 6, 2019)

It seems you can trade emicros for as little as $200 on Optimus for day trading. It seems you need $630 for full margin. I assume this is for holding overnight.

The fees are really low from 0.32-.0.47 USD per trade with round trip by doubling. This is even lower than crypto minimum trading I am testing with my bot.

Also, according to Optimus you will avoid the sketchy forex bucket shops:

  1. And finally, smaller contract sizes can allow you to trade a contract in a regulated exchange where price is market-driven and transparent, and where counterparty risk may be tremendously reduced. In short, you can avoid trading with an over-the-counter “bucket shop,” such as the case with CFDs.

This will include your typical forex broker who is not regulated with questionable pairs

There appears to be even gold emicro
