One of the reasons that regular forex prime brokerages don't provide the services that PoPs do is that there is a smaller profit margin in the smaller trades. Additionally, their systems often don't support a cost-effective way to complete smaller trades. PoP brokerages are also equipped to deal with increasing regulatory requirements for highly leveraged trades.
