I'd add just another note - most brokers offer Marked-up spreads (the commission is included in the spread) which makes the spread even bigger. You should look for brokers that provide Core Spreads (= Market spread) and they will charge commission separately. Which is good because you can clearly see how much is the commission you pay for each trade.
spreads is an important financial tool which an investor should consider when choosing a broker, i always like to trade with low trading spreads which is very supportive to predict the market with certainly.
For me, tight spreads are important because the lower the spreads, the better trading condition the broker will have, and I mostly trade using ECN brokers like FP Markets and CMC Markets because they have some of the lowest spreads.
