    This is one of the most places that eh forex traders are missing it. if you are saying that you want to get the best in the market, you must have a very good money managerial skills, it is better in that way, and the money will be coming to you with a whole lot of patience. But try to risk very low, it is the best. 100$ should of for maximum of 0.05 lot.

    I think the best lot for $ 100 which is 0.01 to 0.03 with a standard leverage. This lot is very good for beginner traders who want to learn forex with small risk and do not want to add a stop loss when trading. But if you are including advanced traders, we could use a lot more like a lot of 0.05 - 0.1.

    It is very important for traders to trade with a lot size that is not risky for their trading account. A good forex trader should not use more than 10% of their trading capital as margin in all their trades. So for a $100 account a lot size of 0.1 should be used.

    Yes sir this is the best lot size to trade on with $100 account because in Forex basics the minimum lot size to trade with at a time is 0.01 lot per $100 fund value, and with this lot we can hold our trade quite a long time depending on our trading strategy without tension.

    As per my knowledge It is always better to choose the lot size as per the margin availability. I always trade in 50% of my capital available and hold erst 50% for averaging at below price to quick exit or. because using leverage and creating big position at a time may create either big profit or big loss to the account. So always trade with small quantity so that your trading account will be in safe and sustain for longer time.

    I think we can take the risk of upto 10% trading lot according to trading capital. Means, with the 100$ trading capital we can trade with the range of 0.05-0.10 lot through which we can hope to earn some reasonable profit also. But we should not hope to earn huge profit by making our lot bigger.

    for the first time, it is better to set it with the smaller, and you will learn much about the lots size and will know what is the best setting for your trading style and you feel comfortable and enjoy it, but also you will know and understand about the risk and reward, so keep learning and learn how to set it , use demo account, set virtual money $ 100 and try some setting for lots size
