I just made some computation...last week for 100'000 USD, i gave 3'000 USD to (severals brokers for a 300 USD of gain...waghh it's 1000 % of commission. The spread is just killing all rentability.
How a business can continue to be sustainable when you are cheating so high your(s) client(s) ?
If you gave $3,000 for $100,000 it is only 3%.
It is up to you to make some profit out of that 1 lot = $100,000.
Moreover on my broker comission for trading one lot is $55 and zero spread.
So comission og your broker is $3000 for 1 lot? That is nonsense.
