What are cent lots?

Cent distinguishes itself by valuing trade volumes in cent lots (where 1 cent lot equals 100,000 cents or USD 1,000), in contrast to the Standard and Professional accounts which use lots (with 1 lot equating to 100,000 units of the base currency). With a minimum trade volume set at 0.01 cent lots Standard Cent offers an excellent sandbox for practicing with minimized risk.

The balance of a Cent account is displayed in cents or any chosen cent-based currency. Hence, a deposit of USD 5 will show as USC 500 (500 cents) in the account, not as USD 5.
