This is due to some great (sarcasm) US regulation that was recently brought about. My brokers do the same thing (Oanda US division and Interactive Brokers). The only solution is to use a non-US broker. Oanda's Singapore division do not impose such a requirement and I may transfer over my Oanda account to their division. Like you, I find it a pain. One way to work around it is to do your entries of different lot sizes. For example with Oanda you can trade as small as $1 positions, so you may do sizes of 100,00 100,001 100,002 etc... per...Ignored
