I bought the 50k demo acct for 99 dollars. ..

Why am I allowed a 5 lot in the mini nasdaq but then only a 5 lot in the micros?
Obviously I should be allowed up to 50 micros!

Why not allow 50 on the micros

For one reason, you would incur a very higher than normal ticket charge if you traded 50 micros.

And, the micros are usually traded in the swing $10,000 account which is not included in that $99 special offer (that has expired BTW).

And, that are the rules that they have set up for their trading.

He knows that's the rules, he's asking why. That's what this thread is for isn't it?

It'd be smart to allow 10 micros to a mini as we can scale in and out of trades easier, minimising risk.
