I am on the demo retail hotspot fx and the spread for eur-usd is 2 I would say 90 % of the time. It goes to 1 for a very short time here and there, sometimes to 3. There is also a commission which adds basically the equivalent of 0.6 pips (round trip). So its as though the "spread" where 2.6 on eur/usd almost all the time. This seems very high for an ecn. On currenex the spreads seems to be 1 pip. Is the hotspot retail platform different from the professional platform...they claim it is not????
