I much prefer fixed spreads rather than floating spreads because sometimes floating soread can widen regarding fast movement that is not good for hedging trading, sometimes spreads could reach 30 to 40 pips, that’s why I always like to depend on fixed spreads.

Fixed spread broker provides fixed spread only 95% of the time. When there is high impact news release spread widen. So there is no 100% fixed spread account.
The market will trade through it’s path of least resistance .

I find that most of the brokers that offer fixed spreads are just bucket shop brokers that give huge slippage or don't pay up when you win

The trading spreads is a big deal when choosing a reliable broker , we can choose the broker which for all time make sure best trading environment by providing lowest trading spreads which is very supportive to make profit with certainly by using any kinds of trading strategies in particularly the scalping that brings profit in a short time. That’s why when choosing a broker we have to looking for better trading spreads.

I am not an experienced trader, however I prefer to trade with a DMA broker that provides interbank spreads. Thus the spread cannot be fixed... but always floating as it depends on the market conditions. LongVision is right there is no 100 % fixed spread and it is not normal to be like this ...
Accept the loss as experience

I am also fan of DMA/STP interbank core spreads providing brokers. I understand that the spreads can not be 100% fixed, so it is better to be floating but interbank core :)

I favor fixed spreads because I don’t know any advantage of floating spreads. Well I think floating spreads may cause trader to make bad entry, especially buy entry.

I think, a broker which provides fixed spreads is 100% Market maker with dealing desk. I do not trust such brokers, because they wins from traders losses :)

Market makers are just like bookies. They will take you money all day long

Yeah, but it is not easy to find them. There is not a broker that will tell you 'I am a market maker' :) But there are some signs to find which brokers are market makers and which- not. One of the most important things is the 'Execution model'. Before starting using any broker, every trader should know what is the execution model of the preferred broker. For example, if the execution model is 'NDD DMA/STP' this means, that the broker don't have Dealing Desk and provides Direct Market Access / Straight Trough Process, therefore such brokers aren't market makers.

A good rule of thumb is..

Fixed spreads = Market maker
variable spreads + commission = proper broker

Well said and true :) Floating spread + separately charged commission is great sign for the broker, that he doesn't win from the traders loses, just from commissions.

Many brokers offer fixed and variable. But if you go with fixed the broker bets against you but if you go variable then it should be ECN which means you are in the market (and is better IMHO)

Like the others before me said -
Fixed spreads is a sign that that broker is a Market Maker.
Variable spreads = ECN or DMA/STP broker

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.

I know that separate spreads are better but I still prefer it when all the fees are in the spread. It is so much easier to calculate how much the trade costs me
