A currency trading lot size that is 1/10 the size of the standard lot of 100,000 units. One pip of a currency pair based in U.S. dollars is equal to $1 when trading a mini-lot, compared to $10 for a standard-lot trade. Mini-lots are available to trade if you open a mini-account with a forex dealer.

Mini-accounts are not limited to only trading with one mini-lot at a time. To make an equivalent trade to a one standard-lot, a trader can trade 10 mini-lots. By using mini-lots instead of standard-lots, a trader can customize the trade, and have greater control of their risk exposure.
