alpari changed minimal lot in the ecn-new account type from 0.01 to 0.1.

as i am using averaging, i need small entries for opening of positions.

so i was forced to move to standard account.

this kind of changes force me to do extra work and can lead to loss in some cases, when EA is controlling account. 

well, i didn't change the broker, but i am really pissed off with this kind of behaviour.

what is your tolerance level in this kind of situations?

Any thoughts?

graziani: what is your tolerance level in this kind of situations?

  1. We're not allowed to talk about particular brokers here.
  2. It's not just minlot. Some brokers have mini-accounts where each lot is 10K instead of 100K
  3. I vote with my feet.

point is that the broker changed the contract based on one-side decision without notice, thereby creating work overload and potential loss.

it is not relevant which broker it is, alpari is generally talking a good broker.

but where is the line which shouldn't be crossed?

what more can i expect?

how often does this happen?

I doubt there is such a line.
