The broker is a very essential subject for trading. If the broker's spread is good, many benefits can be gained. Market maker broker spreads are usually not good. Details about the broker should be known before investing in trading.
Well.. Spread eats profits, and destroys many otherwise good strategies. Move higher. Some Market Makers offer many other good features, like guaranteed stop loss, and zero negative balance. I wouldn't blindly stare at nominal spread, since there is also a phenomen called slippage, which is essentially a hidden part of the spread.
