True. And besides, it's better for one's spread not to widen ridiculously during news events hitting the stop loss.

I always watch the spread before a trade, sometimes it takes the broker awhile to adjust it according to risk, if its to wide I stay out, try to calculate the difference while its moving.

Dynamic spread is always better than fixed spread, because most of the times brokers providing fixed spread are market maker brokers. So you should stay away from a broker offering fixed spreads.

Fixed spreads might be good if you are trading just in a cent or micro account or a very small account in that range just to test your system, but definitely not suitable for large accounts.

Wouldn't fixed spreads also be beneficial if one uses scalping strategies to trade?

Hey guys,

do you prefer fixed spreads or do you prefer dynamic spreads? What does your broker offer you?

Thanks for taking time to respond.



I think that a broker has mobile spreads can be a big problem if we are interested in the short term, or if our account does not have much margin to support the operations.

IMHO variable spreads are better as usually they are lower than fixed.
During big news BOTH fixed and variable spreads are rising.

Staying with the topic on fixed and variable spreads, will a commission based trades offer better execution and reduce slippage during big news? Is this a better option for people tading on news? Thanks in advance for the feedback.

I feel more comfortable the variable spread as it is suiting my trading style. I don’t know how long I will stick to that but at present, I like to go ahead with the variable spread.

I would say it does not depend on fixed/variable spreads
Execution and slippage differs from broker to broker.
Logically the best conditions during news could offer B-Book broker as such trades will never reach the market :)

Slippage is the big black box of brokers. Spreads can be compared but slippage can also eat into your results around news time. Some ECN brokers that are good most of the time suck during news
