Micro accounts are based on the Market-maker model, i.e. there is no direct access to the Forex market (interbank market), as a broker (dealing center) makes a market for its clients. A company becomes a liquidity provider that quotes both a buy and a sell price in a financial instrument. Traders' deals are executed in an instant manner: an instant execution order is one that’s executed at the price on the screen. If the price is not available any more in the market, there will be a 're-quote'.
Today, FXOpen offers the only one account based on Market Maker model - Micro.
FXOpen Micro – so called "Cent accounts" are the best variant for newbie traders who can try Forex trading without the risk of large principal loss but also great for experienced traders who’d like to try new strategies.
