Micro account recommendations

Hi all

Anyone recommend a decent micro account vendor. Looking to open an account from the UK wth limited funds to start the learning curve and instill some discipline in forex trading and possibly Gold/silver, so need something with a small enough lot size to allow a few learning mistakes before busting the account.

I've had a look at using MT4 and would like that available if possible but need a web platform to be able to access at work for trades as well during the day.

I've had a look at FXCM but doesn't appear to have a web platform? Also had a look at AFX Capital and Alpari UK which seem to fit the bill, anyone had any experience of these?

Thanks in advance

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

If you really want, a really, really small account.

You can start with OANDA
No minimum deposit
You can even deposit $1 to trade with

Leverage is 50X though.
But I'm not a fan of leverage though, cause 50X is enough for the MM% risk that I'm using.

Had a look and think I'll give go markets nano account a go to get started. Should be good to test out a few ideas without too much risk of bankruptcy.
