I have never traded with a broker who offered a fixed spread.

I prefer as tight spread as possible, fixed or floating is not so critical, but don't recall trading with fixed for a long time.

I have an account that is fixed spread and it is actually really good for trading during the asian session.

Is it even possible? Do you have some sort of other commission or what?

I have never traded with fixed spreads, so I assume in this way it's like average spread for the whole period. Must be very high... I trade with dynamic spreads for now and I am quite satisfied.

What strategy do you use? I mean it may have no difference if you trade on large time frames...

I usually don't mind about this stuff since I adjust my strategy for each. I can understand why brokers offer dynamic spreads ('cause I work for one) as the price erratically fluctuates. Fixed spreads just offer more risk for the broker in a volatile market.

Well, I prefer dynamic spreads as it better reflects supply/demand.

I totally agree with you. I just thought in different way in previous time (I though that fixed spreads are easier to calculate and more convenient) and it was my real mistake.

We all make mistakes, but as long as we learn from them it is positive progress.

There could be a number of reasons. Just because they are retail traders does not mean that they don't have a strategy they like which works better with dynamic spreads.

because with using dynamic spreads all the participants of the market can react to the economic events in the better way.
