Mini accounts utilising prohibited strategies may be switched to No Dealing Desk execution. Mini accounts default to 200:1 leverage. Mini accounts with equity greater than 20,000 CCY will be switched to a Standard account with 100:1 leverage, No Dealing Desk execution, and commission based pricing. See Execution Risks.
