Why open a standard account with FXDD?

I spoke to a live chat support employee, and he informed me that:

  • The spreads are the same for mini and standard accounts.
  • Both accounts can trade any lot size.

So really the only difference is that a mini account has twice the available leverage? But it’s not like you have to use that leverage, it just gives you twice as much available margin compared to a standard account.

So…what’s the dang point in opening a standard account then? I don’t see any advantages in this case.
