Do you prefer fixed spreads or dynamic spreads?

I generally prefer fixed spreads when that's possible, because with them there are no nasty surprises during high volumes and high impact events.

execution speed on floating spread is always better rather than using fixed spread, the bad thing with floating spread is dangereous if you use hedging as your strategy because spread can widen during weekend or spike on news releases

To be honest, the spread widening during news events is dangerous even if you're not hedging. It can widen considerably, take your stop and then the pair continues on its merry way in the direction you were expecting.

It is suggested to go for variable spreads as the price feeds are direct from LP's. So in fixed spread your broker can be market maker. Also if you are day trader go for variable spread but being a long term trader you can earn with fixed spreads at the time of events or news as spread is larger at that time.neutral

it's dangerous for sure to trade with dynamic spreads during news, but there is always a good chance to make a profit

With dynamic spread on ECN broker you can get cost of trade less than 1.0 pip.
Havent seen fixed like this.

True. On the other hand, it carries considerable risk, and said risk is too much for me, so I avoid trading during that time.
