I am actually requesting these info from Brokers and let's see.
The Brokers don´t give you information about real spread, only normal spread, sometimes in XAUUSD spread grow very much, and brokers don´t give you data of slippage, they always blame market conditions.
Yes, any USD sensitive news will cause gold's spread to get quite insane no matter what broker you use.
I believe this is the result of just how much gold can move on news, and liquidity providers acting accordingly to manage risk as they make the market in gold spot. You wouldn't want to be left holding the proverbial bag either if there was a sudden shock to the USD and you were in their shoes.
If you watch gold futures (GC) it's pretty much the same, sometimes worse actually.
I believe that brokers that can offer you a ECN account will do the job just fine. Try to learn about the platforms they can offer to you. There are no easy days in trading. Learn the craft. Best regards.

Thanks but this is not related to my questions at all.
