Do you prefer fixed spreads or dynamic spreads?

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

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.


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.

If you want to end up with a nonaverage net worth, a “learn from someone else” attitude is paramount. Putting your ego aside and admitting that you don’t know it all isn’t easy, but it is the mindset of true winner ----Paul Tudor Jones.

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

Pardon my french, but why should a retail trader prefer dynamic spreads?

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.

Please does anybody know any 2 or 3 broker regulated by ASIC or FSA with good fixed spread account types offered?
