I would like to go long on OJ but the smallest lot size at IB is too big, especially with the leverage.

How can I access a smaller lot size?

A lot of the CME Group Products have mini contracts (Crude QM, Natty QG, Soybean XK, USDEUR M6E) that are quite liquid and some that barely trade at all (Gasoline/RBOB QU). Unfortunately I do not think that ICE US/NYBOT has any mini contracts at all. Since your in England you could try a CFD broker - not legal here in the States.

Thanks.
Interactive Brokers is a CFD broker?

I used FXCM in the past for smaller lots.

Commodities - FXCM Support

HotForex has the widest section I could find with cotton/coffee and cocoa but none I found so far have Orange Juice.

Interestingly, I asked a similar question 5 years ago:
